Leave it to people to always blow things out of proportion! The target was talk Show Host and Comedienne Ellen DeGenerous.
On Monday Ellen posted a meme on her Twitter account with herself on Usain Bolt's back with the caption "This is how I'm running errands from now on" . Now that you are up to speed ( pun intended ) here is our take ... it's not that serious. People are starting to catch feelings because Usain Bolt a black man is the "human transportation" for Ellen DeGeneres a white female.
"I am highly aware of the racism that exists in our country. It is the furthest thing from who I am." - Ellen DeGeneres
The tone and nature of the post was in good humor and should be taken as such. It would be a different case if Bolt was Photo-shopped wearing shackles and Ellen serving as "Massa" to allude to Racism or Slavery. It just means he's so fast she'd rather use him ... instead of a car.
It's not that serious so let's just all sit back and enjoy the Olympic games and continue to cheer on team Jamaica. Let's save our time and energy for when things get really serious. #jaminate #usainbolt #rio
