Ellen never cease to amaze me. If she isn’t playing pranks on her celebrity guest that comes on her show, then she’s surprising the audience at Oscars with her crazy antics. Most recently she was full of surprises again but this time it was in a serious manner. There was no crazy pranks when talking to special guest Van Jones about a very serious topic, police violence.
While interviewing Van Jones, Ellen had this to say about the police shooting epidemic, “I’m furious. As a white person, I’m ashamed… “I think, how is this possible that this keeps happening and nothing — there’s just blatant racism.” Ellen I truly salute you for speaking these words on national television.
