Thursday, October 26, 2017

Comedian and daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres is receiving some backlash from fans after a joke about Katy Perry was taken as sexist.

In the wake of the recent Harvey Weinstein scandal, of which DeGeneres was an outspoken critic, dedicating part of her show to sharing her thoughts on the "#MeToo" movement, many fans were quick to mention the idea that this tweet wouldn't fly had a man posted it. Many began responding to the tweet with the hashtag "#doublestandard." Others went as far as to compare her to Weinstein and call her a "pig."

Her being a lesbian changes things, I assume.

I don't know. This is pretty lame. I'm going to assume they're friends and no offense is taken.
It goes to show that things are evolving quickly and it's going to get awkward.

The original headline was goofy. Ellen didn't sexually assault Perry in a tweet. That isn't possible.

Girl-on-girl is fine. In fact, we need more liberal entertainment.

This is one area where conservatives-liberals agree.

It's just guy stuff nobody wants to see.

Christ can't people wait and see if offense is even taken?

Also, any guy whining about this for the sake of whining is being an idiot.

Maybe not Ellen. It would be like going after Maddcow.

Her "wife" on the other hand.....

Some of the responses here are "Weird".

Sort of like the "A 16 year old boy cant be raped by his hot teacher", type thing..

#6 Stupid, yes...but not unprecedented. Lots of articles out there claiming speech can be assault. By extension, speech of a sexual nature would be considered sexual assault.

Don't look at me like that...you progressives invented this s$&t.

I know quite a few lesbians. And I've told them all. If I ever talked to women, and acted around women, the same way you do, I would have been arrested for sexual harassment and abuse.

There's definitely a double standard about how far women allow other women to go.

I see nothing wrong in the tweet. It's sad that a ------ like Piers Morgan is finally right about something..."Piers Morgan too speculated that, had a man tweeted something similar, Ellen would be leading the "cries of ‘SEXIST PIG!'"

It sad too, that people think Ellen tweet is in any way comparable to Weinstein abusing women.

I guess the message here is lesbian sex isn't real sex?

It's only when men flirt with women people get offended?

I guess you gotta have at least 1 penis involved to count.

And they say it ain't a man's world.

I commend Clown for getting it.

You mean like how Trump invented Fake News?

Umm ok. Sure whatever you say man. This is America and you get to believe all the stupid ---- that you want to believe (or more likely what Fox News tells you to believe) .

As long as it does not "pick my pocket or break my bones."

AmIRight?

#20 Are you smoking weed? That post makes as much sense as a pregnant nun.

In an odd sense they are (yes it is a stretch) co-workers. So would this fly in an office setting considering that or would it be harassment? Now insert a man doing it. Ya, I'm pretty sure that would result in training classes and a lawsuit for sure.

#20 You're supposed to share when you're planning on getting that high....
