Ellen DeGeneres Responds to Accusations of Racism Over Usain Bolt Meme

Ellen DeGeneres has heard your concerns and would like you to know she's not, in fact, a racist. On Monday, the daytime host literally jumped on the Usain Bolt meme bandwagon, posting a picture of herself being carried on the Olympic track icon's back while she "runs errands." 

After many accused the meme of being racially insensitive, Ellen has now tweeted her defense of the meme, implying that she understands the historical context and meant no offense. 


  1. Seriously! Black people,she's just being humorous. What's with the race card all the time. I don't like the gay part of Ellen, but seriously, she was just being funny. Nothing to do with race. Why do people always look for the offensive part of things. I was actually laughing at that meme. Others were thinking race. Why do y'all see race in everything? C'mon!!
