Ellen under activist fire for her personal birthday tribute to friend Katy Perry.

Sanyukta Thakare | October, 27 2017

Ellen DeGeneres's simple and subtle comedy has now gotten her into trouble, more like under fire.
 
We have all seen the picture Ellen took with Katy Perry and wife Portia de Rossi. The image had DeGeneres' mouth agape as she stared at Perry's breasts. it wasn't the picture that got her under the activist radar but her snide comment under it. 
 
The "Roar" singer turned 33 on Wednesday and DeGeneres wished her with a throwback photograph saying, "Happy birthday, Katy Perry! It's time to bring out the big balloons." The three seemed to have a good laugh about the photo when it was taken.
 
Many deemed that it was an insensitive tweet in light of sexual harassment allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein. Some responded to the tweet with the hashtag #doublestandard.
 
Television personality Piers Morgan commented: "If a man made this joke, Ellen would lead the cries of 'sexist pig!"; while actor Michael Rapaport similarly tweeted: "Imagine if Cam Newton or any other man sent out this tweet and photo. If a dude said this the world would stop."
 
Another critic compared DeGeneres to Weinstein and posted: "Ellen DeGeneres sexually harasses Katy Perry. Wonder how she interviews female employees? Hollywood #Weinstein."
 
Another commented: "WTF? Ellen Weinstein? totally unacceptable."
 
People do have an opinion of their own, but I sure would like to check out their social media pages and read their snide birthday tributes which are probably worse than this. 
 
Celebs being in the limelight does put them on the spot but its natural to have a moment to themselves with little jokes they share with their other celebrity friends. 
 
Each for their word I guess. Katty hasn't said much about the picture or the tribute. But we do wish her a very Happy Birthday.
