If you were looking for an excuse to unfollow your homophobic second cousin on Twitter, this week might be the best time to hop on the bandwagon.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports a spike in the number of people tweeting requests to stop following them if their followers don't agree with them on marriage equality and LGBT rights. Here are some of those who feel strongly about marriage, in either direction:

 

 

If you're against marriage equality, please unfollow me. You can hate LOST all you want, but you can't hate love.

About to delete/unfollow anyone who uses the phrase "traditional marriage" to defend their anti same-sex marriage views.
