This past Sunday, Ellen DeGeneres was seen sitting next to George W Bush in a suite at the Cowboys/Packers game.  Not only was she and her wife Portia sitting next to George and Laura Bush, but they were seen laughing and talking together.  Oh, the horror!!

The LGBT community was upset with her because they have completely different views, and historically former President Bush has opposed the LGBT community.

Twitter users were all in an uproar about it and made their thoughts known...

 "Ellen, this isn’t just a simple difference of opinion. George Bush, his administration, and his colleagues actively discriminated and worked against the LGBT community," one Twitter user wrote, while another added, "Really, really low standards there Ellen, and pretty pathetic."

If you ever watch the Ellen Show, she always ends with "be kind to one another".  She made a statement about the backlash referring to the sign off...

"During the game, they showed a shot of me and George laughing together. And so, people were upset," DeGeneres said. "They thought, 'Why is this gay Hollywood liberal sitting next to a conservative Republican president?' "  

She added...

"Here’s the thing," she added. "I’m friends with George Bush. In fact, I’m friends with a lot of people who don’t share the same beliefs that I have. We’re all different and I think that we've forgotten that that’s OK."

"When I say 'be kind to one another,' I don’t mean only the people that think the same way that you do. I mean be kind to everyone. Doesn’t matter."

Ellen- 100%
