Fans have accused Ellen Degeneres of being racist after she posted a meme featuring Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt.
The popular star photoshopped herself riding Bolt’s back into the image that captured his win during the 100 metre race at the 2016 Rio Olympics this week.
‘This is how I’m running errands from now on,' she captioned the image.
Some were quick to point out negative connotations surrounding the image of a white woman using a black man as a mode of transportation.
Responding to claims, the 58-year-old tweeted: 'I am highly aware of the racism that exists in our country. It is the furthest thing from who I am.'
