“I’ve got friends who don’t think it’s the same thing I do,” said DeGeneres. “When I say,” be kind to one another, and I don’t mean just the people who think the same way as you do, I mean, be nice to people.”
“Thelma & Louise star Sarandon tweeted a quote from the Magazine’s response to DeGeneres’ statements, with the emphasis on the part of the passage: “But you’ll miss the point entirely, DeGeneres framed the problem as it will just be a matter of her hanging out with someone who has a different opinion, there was not a man who has been repeatedly accused of being a war criminal.”
Sarandon, 73, was not the only celebrity to speak up about it, however. Actresses Witherspoon, 43, and Bell, 39, voiced their opinions in support of DeGeneres. The two of them are now being called for the support of the “Finding Dory”star.
“No, thank you for this great reminder, Ellen!” the “Legally Blonde” star tweeted in response to DeGeneres’ comments.

There are tens of thousands of people in the middle east, not to make friends with people who have different views, ” because they are dead thanks to him. And he’s spent his presidency trying to strip away LGBT rights, so no. This play is one of pure class privilege.”
