Mark Ruffalo ripped into Ellen DeGeneres after the daytime host defended her friendship with former President George W. Bush.
DeGeneres, 61, sat next to Bush during a Cowboys-Packers football game on Sunday. She received criticism online, which forced her to address the situation on her show.
The article goes on to state the following:
Ruffalo accused Bush in the past of having “the blood of 100s of thousands of innocent people on his hands.”
Actress Susan Sarandon also tweeted criticism. She tweeted:
“But missing the point entirely, DeGeneres framed the issue as simply a matter of her hanging out with someone with different opinions, not a man repeatedly accused of being a war criminal.”
She was tweeting a quote from an article in Out titled “Ellen Is ‘Friends’ With Bush — But He Was No Friend to LGBTQ+ People.”
The author, Nico Lang, continued:
“Rather than admitting that, hey, maybe it’s bad to kick it with someone whose administration tortured lots and lots of people — and then repeatedly sought to justify it — DeGeneres showed her audience a screenshot of a tweet that read: ‘Ellen and George Bush together makes me have faith in America again.’”
One actress came out in defense of DeGeneres. Kristen Bell put out an Instagram post captioned, “Shes my 👑👑👑👑👑👑👑👑👑.”
Sorry, until George W. Bush is brought to justice for the crimes of the Iraq War, (including American-lead torture, Iraqi deaths & displacement, and the deep scars—emotional & otherwise—inflicted on our military that served his folly), we can’t even begin to talk about kindness. https://t.co/dpMwfck6su

Thank You!!! Bush has the blood of 100s of thousands of innocent people on his hands. Not even Trump can claim that (yet). https://t.co/u4GZv7cz5I
