Actor Mark Ruffalo blasted Ellen DeGeneres for wanting to 'talk about kindness, ' after the television show host advocated for friendships with people who have different beliefs in defense of her relationship with George W. Bush. When I say, 'Be kind to one another, ' I don't only mean only the people who think the same way that you do.
Bell's The Good Place co-star Jameela Jamil also praised the talk show host for her "incredibly strong" handling of the controversy. Ruffalo added that Bush's alleged crimes include "American-led torture, Iraqi deaths and displacement, and the deep scars - emotional and otherwise - inflicted on our military that served [Bush's] folly". Sarandon, who has starred in iconic films like Thelma and Louise, also reminded Ellen that Bush is a "war criminal" and, judging by the article she shared, how he is also no friend to the LGBT community.
In a statement to USA Today, a spokesman said Bush and his wife were thrilled to spend time with DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi at the Dallas Cowboys-Green Bay Packers game Sunday. "They respect her", Freddy Ford, Chief of Staff for President George W. Bush, said in a statement to CNN.
The famed host always signs off of her daily show asking viewers to be kind to one another. I was rooting for the Packers. "During the game, they showed a shot of George and me laughing together and, so, people were upset". "They thought, why is a gay Hollywood liberal sitting next to a conservative Republican president?... Extra folks want to know that George Bush was a detriment to mankind, even when not as outlandish as Trump". "But a lot of people were mad, and they did what people do when they're mad - they tweet".
The TV personality went on to add that just because she didn't agree with someone on everything did not rule out her friendship with them.
'After we possess been invited, I became mindful that we possess been going to be surrounded by many other of us from assorted views and beliefs, ' she acknowledged, exhibiting a video she took of the considerable person-studded field. I don't like it, but I'm friends with people who wear fur... "I mean be kind to everyone-doesn't matter".
Queer activist, writer, and Delhi University PhD and gender studies professor Vikramaditya Sahai posted a thought-provoking thread on the outrage against the picture of DeGeneres and Bush "as symptomatic of our obsession with representation over materiality".
DeGeneres said she believes people have forgotten that we are all different and that that's OK.
