Ellen Degeneres

Fair or foul???

Ellen Accused Of Racism Over Usain Bolt Tweet

Ellen Degeneres recently caught hell on social media after she posted a tweet about the World’s Fastest Man.

On Monday she posted a photoshopped picture of herself riding Usain Bolt’s back captioned, “This is how I’m running errands from now on. #Rio2016.”

And while some people found it absolutely hilarious including possibly Usain himself who retweeted it, others found the picture steeped in racism drawing comparisons to pictures of slaves being ridden by their masters.

Wow! Things are looking dismal for Degeneres…

Ellen’s since responded to the racism claims; hit the flip for her response.
