Controversies • On August 15, 2016, Ellen DeGeneres posted a photoshopped version of the now-famous snapshot of Olympic runner Usain Bolt glancing back at his competitors during the 100-meter semifinal race in Rio. In the morphed image, DeGeneres appears to be riding on his back. She captioned the image, “This is how I’m running errands from now on”. However, this act of light humour was not taken in the way it was intended to be. Many twitteratis accused the comedian of racism, saying the image of a white woman on a Black man’s back is offensive.

• With Quantico star Priyanka Chopra as a guest on “The Ellen’s Show”, Ellen made some remarks that made Priyanka’s fans angry. During the talk show, Ellen asked her that how did she manage to win the Miss World pageant with ‘that hand wave’; DeGeneres compared her wave to ‘unscrewing of a light bulb’. The comedienne-host even joked that it was a “miracle” that Priyanka made it this far.
