Ellen DeGeneres Tweet About Usain Bolt Goes Viral For Being Racist

Please put down your pitchforks and tell me honestly if you think Ellen had any kind of racist intentions with this tweet…

I’m not sure I would EVER buy that Ellen DeGeneres was a racist- she does an incredible amount of good for people she doesn’t know on her show daily- regardless of their skin color.

However, this meme has gotten a TON of backlash saying that the tweet was incredibly racist and insensitive.

Usain has visited Ellen’s show MANY times. They are obviously good friends. This was meant in fun, in my opinion. But again…everyone has one of those, you may think mine is wrong, and that’s ok.

I am always game to call out any celebrity for being inappropriate- this isn’t one of those times.

People need to take a minute to stop judging so quickly. I think the world would be a better place if we all thought of someone’s true intentions before jumping to conclusions.

2016 has already been the year of the greater population being offended- let’s do better in 2017.
