Hollywood split over Ellen and George Bush controversy

Mark Ruffalo blasts Ellen DeGeneres over her friendship with George W. Bush

Bush also appreciated DeGeneres' comments about respecting one another, and "especially on being kind to folks with views that are different than your own", TMZ reported.

After a photo of former U.S. president George W Bush and Ellen DeGeneres seated next to each other at an National Football League game last weekend went viral, the talk show host defended being friends with the controversial former head of state.

"I'm really lucky that as young as 28 I even had a chance to get my mental health back and have some time and space in my life to be able to start learning, and it's been a journey", she said in a video.

And while there were plenty of people who accepted her explanation, actor Mark Ruffalo reignited the debate over the former president by pointing out that Bush had still not been brought to justice. When cameras captured the two together in the stands, criticism sparked. "We're all different, and I think we've forgotten that that's OK that we're all different", DeGeneres said.


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". "During the game, they showed a shot of George and me laughing together and, so, people were upset".

"They thought, why is a gay Hollywood liberal sitting next to a conservative Republican president?" "Didn't even notice I'm holding the brand new iPhone 11". "But a lot of people were mad, and they did what people do when they're mad - they tweet". It's here where Ruffalo made his declaration that George Bush deserves to be brought to justice. When I say, 'Be kind to one another, ' I don't only mean only the people who think the same way that you do. Many of DeGeneres' fans were quick to criticize the television host, an outspoke member and champion of the LGBTQ community, for being friends with Bush, who actively opposed the legalization of same-sex marriage.

'Factual due to the I don't agree with somebody on everything doesn't point out I'm not going to be chums with them. "I wish people wouldn't wear fur". I'm chums with a form of of us who don't allotment the equal beliefs that I basically possess. I mean to be kind to everyone.

However, not everyone is embracing her optimistic message. Mark has campaigned for many Democratic political candidates and is an outspoken opponent of current President Donald Trump, just as he was critical of President Bush when he was in office.
