Daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres recently received lots of social media hate for her friendship with George W. Bush after the pair were caught hanging out at a Dallas Cowboys football game. DeGeneres later addressed their friendship on her show and posted a clip of the explanation on Twitter, CNN reported.
“They thought, why is a gay Hollywood liberal sitting next to a conservative Republican president?” she asked in the clip. “A lot of people were mad. And they did what people do when they’re mad… they tweet.”
DeGeneres expressed her belief that people have forgotten that everyone is different and that doesn’t have to get in the way of friendships.
