Ellen DeGeneres Bashed Online for Going 'Full Weinstein' in Tweet About Katy Perry's Breasts
The photo of the talk host gawking at the pop star's breasts was posted as a birthday message.
Ellen DeGeneres has come under fire for posting a racy photo to Twitter early Thursday morning, with some saying the comic is objectifying singer Katy Perry.
"Happy birthday, @katyperry!" she tweeted along with a photo of her gawking at the singer’s chest. “It's time to bring out the big balloons!"
Many are outraged, pointing out that the comedian has loudly denounced disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.
"If you were a man this would be the end of your career,” read one tweet.
"Ellen goes full Weinstein. Nice message to send to young girls," was another.
Others don't believe Ellen's birthday message was a big deal.
One person called it “Funny” while another said “I think we can let this go.”
Meanwhile, actress Ashley Judd appeared on television for the first time to detail her hotel room encounter with Harvey Weinstein. She says the Hollywood mogul asked her to massage him and watch him shower.
“I fought with this volley of ‘no's,’ which he ignored," Judd told ABC News’ Diane Sawyer. "Who knows? Maybe he heard them as ‘maybe.’ Maybe he heard them as ‘yeses.’ Maybe they turned him on. I don’t know.
“He kept coming at me with all this other stuff, and finally I just said, ‘When I win an Oscar in one of your movies, OK?'” Judd added. “And he was like, ‘Yeah, when you get nominated.’ And I said, ‘No! When I win an Oscar.’ And I fled. I just fled.”
Judd winced when Sawyer showed her a photo of them together looking like best pals.
Weinstein's reps distributed the 1997 photo to discredit Judd’s story, but she says the photo does not tell the whole story.
“I hoped I wouldn’t pass him and he obviously grabbed my hand," she said. "The look in my eyes is abject terror. I feel for that 28-29-year-old woman."
