Mark Ruffalo reacts strongly to Ellens defence of Bush

American comedian and television host Ellen DeGeneres and former President George W. Bush stoked controversy over the weekend after footage emerged of the pair seated together at an National Football League game on Sunday.

"In fact, I'm friends with a lot of people who don't share the same beliefs that I have".

But, if Ellen's earlier speech is any indication, she is still likely to extend an invite to both of them on her talk show.

DeGeneres concluded that her proud advocacy of kindness over the years doesn't only apply to the individuals with whom we see eye to eye.

'Sorry, till George W. Bush is dropped at justice for the crimes of the Iraq War, (at the side of American-lead torture, Iraqi deaths & displacement, and the deep scars-emotional & in every other case-inflicted on our armed forces that served his folly), we are in a position to't even initiating to talk about kindness, ' Designate wrote on Wednesday evening.

Ruffalo's statement was not just a criticism of Bush but also an apparent dig at Ellen DeGeneres. "Thanks President Bush and Laura for a Sunday afternoon that was so fun".

Taking to Twitter, the Hulk actor replied to a Arrogance Shapely portion about Ellen's "sunny" attempts to possess the arena be kinder to 1 one other, questioning whether it became "out of contact" with actuality.


DeGeneres then joked about rooting for the Packers since she is friends with their quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, and cheering every time they scored "or every time another whistleblower came forward".

Later on, the comedian continued, "People were upset".

Ruffalo's tweet left people divided. They thought, "Why is a cheerful Hollywood liberal sitting next to a conservative Republican president?"'

The image spurred people to tweet-and one caught DeGeneres' eye. "We're all different and I think that we've forgotten that that's ok that we're all different", she told her audience. Ellen chose to share a positive tweet that read, "Ellen and George Bush together makes me have faith in America again", to which the audience applauded. I don't mean only the people that think the same way that you do.

The former vegan used the example of how she doesn't approve of wearing fur, but is still friends with those who do. "I mean be kind to everyone".

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".
