Ellen Degeneres + Usain Bolt: Was the Tweet racist?

While the US picked up six more medals in Rio yesterday, including two silvers and four bronze medals. There has been a little controversy over the tweet below. Was it racist? Was it in bad taste? Are people being too sensitive? What are your thoughts when you see this photo?

Perez Hilton may have said it best! The Internet is NOT happy with Ellen DeGeneres over this tweet which shows the talk show host, actor and comedian riding on the back of Usain Bolt, the fastest man on the planet, who just took home another gold medal at the Rio games.

  • 10am - 2pm | I am the resident radio geek here at BOB. I live, breathe, and eat radio. However, when I’m not on the radio you can find me searching for a local hole-in-the-wall pizza joint, walking the streets of downtown at night in search of fun local music to listen to, going to movies, an occasional trip to Wendover, traveling, exploring, or just chilling at home with my little family. I LOVE talking on the phone! Hit me up on our studio line at 877-807-1007, or on your social media site of choice!
