Ellen DeGeneres Responds to Racism Allegations After Posting Photo of Herself With Usain Bolt

After Ellen DeGeneres posted a photo of herself riding on the back of the Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt, she responded to criticism by tweeting, “I am highly aware of the racism that exists in our country.”

The internet is angry with Ellen DeGeneres for photoshopping herself riding Usain Bolt’s back onto a now-famous image of Bolt smiling as he sprints toward the gold medal in the 100-meter race at the Rio Olympics.

DeGeneres shared the picture on Monday, with a caption that said, “This is how I’m running errands from now on.”

The tweet prompted immediate backlash from many users who said the image was racist for showing a white woman riding on the back of a black man.

From now on, this is how I’m running errands. #Rio2016
