If there was ever a person on this earth who would never intentionally hurt someone else’s feelings, Ellen DeGeneres would be the one. But she’s been getting some major heat for a picture she recently posted to Twitter featuring the super fast Olympian, Usain Bolt. The pic showed Bolt carrying Ellen on his back…piggy back style.
The caption on the picture from Ellen said, “This is how I’m running errands from now on” …alluding to the fact that she could get them done in the fastest way possible.
According to the Chronicle, “Fans were quick to respond to the picture tweeting replies like, “So the first thing that pops in your head when looking at this pic is ‘oh let me jump onto his back like he’s a common mule?‘” “This is so gross. Fire whoever did this,” tweeted another. Others rushed to DeGeneres’ defense, stating, “What’s wrong with it? She’s saying he’s fast. Nothing more. Nothing less.”
Bolt is pretty much acknowledged as the greatest sprinter in history, and I’m sure Ellen NEVER intended for this picture to cause the stir it did. What do you guys think??
