Millions of sites are protesting the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House, two bills that purport to censor the Web and, according to Google, "impose harmful regulations on American business." Internet users across the world wide web are opposing the legislation; we took to Twitter to see what celebrities were saying about it. Everyone--from venture capitalist Ashton Kutcher to harem-pants purveyor MC Hammer--had something to say.

Marlee Matlin All this talk about #SOPA. With my limited Spanish I thought "why is everyone talking about soup?" I love sopa de albondigas! :)
