TV show host and admitted lesbian, Ellen DeGeneres, says she’s not racist after receiving backlash on social media for posting an edited photo of herself riding on the back of Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt.
After receiving numerous complaints, Ellen tweeted the following response: “I am highly aware of the racism that exists in our country. It is the furthest thing from who I am.”
Ellen did not remove the post nor was she reprimanded by her bosses. Do you believe the photo is racist?
