Why Ellen’s Birthday Message for Katy Perry is Being Called Controversial

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.
