Ellen Degeneres Takes to Twitter to Defend Herself for alleged Racist tweet about Usain Bolt

Talk Show host and comedian - Ellen
DeGeneres has been forced to defend herself
against accusations that a tweet she sent
yesterday was racist .


Ellen posted a photo of herself riding on
the back of Usain Bolt ( above) and added :


“ This is how I ’m running errands from now
on. # Rio 2016 .”


Though this has been regarded by some as
a compliment of Bolt ’s speed and stamina,
certain twitter folks have found the tweet
offensive, saying it’ s racist .


Ellen defended herself by tweeting, “ I am
highly aware of the racism that exists in
our country . It is the furthest thing from
who I am.”
