Seriously, STFU: Ellen is Racist

I was pretty quick to click on the link painting Ellen DeGeneres as a racist. Ellen?

Um, what kind of cry baby world are we living in?  She’s implying that he’s super fucking fast. I, too, would love to be able to get shit done at that speed, it’s quite impressive.

Let me remind you, we’re talking about Ellen here. If Seth Rogen ran that race, posed for a smiling picture at 3,246mph – she’d post a picture of herself riding him too.

See what I did there?

I hope she’s not outraged, I mean, that could imply that she likes men… if you want to get nasty with it.

She’s a comedian, telling jokes in an easily offended world – not a racist.

Seriously, STFU.

  1. Not a racist but rather clueless. It’s really never a great idea for a rich white celeb to post a photo of them ‘riding’ a Black person’s back even in jest. The internet outrage is overblown and mostly fake, of course, but that’s what the internet is and does.

    1. I totally hear what you’re saying. I just feel like at some point it would be nice if we could look at intentions rather than ‘how it could be interpreted’ . It’s all that politically correctness… There’s a time a place. A comedian will rarely be politically correct, but the intentions are not malicious. Especially with this one.

    1. What’s funny about that is, typically, my rant posts (specifically the STFU ones) are way longer. I also could not handle the stupidity.
      Cheers to being on the same page. 🙂
