Ellen DeGeneres shut down hate with humor.
In Wednesday's monologue, The Ellen DeGeneres Show host and 24-time Daytime Emmy Award winner responded to Larry Tomczak, an author and self-proclaimed "cultural commentator," six days after The Christian Post's published his article, "Are You Aware of the Avalanche of Gay Programming Assaulting Your Home?" DeGeneres, 56, doesn't "usually read anything" about herself, she said. "I don't look at the tabloids or the internet. Unless it's about me being pregnant and then how else would I know? Got to find out. But I heard there was an article written about me and I would like to address it right now."
Tomcazk accused Hollywood of having a gay agenda and argued that DeGeneres "celebrates her lesbianism and 'marriage' in between appearances of guests like Taylor Swift to attract young girls."
"OK, let's just break this down. First of all, I'm not 'married,'" Portia De Rossi's wife corrected him while using air quotes. "I'm married. That's all. And, Larry, I don't even know what it means to celebrate my lesbianism. I mean...Well, I guess I do," DeGeneres said, using an air popper. "Like that! Yay! I'm gay!"
