Have you ever wondered how Usain Bolt would fare in a race against James Corden, Owen Wilson, and the entire staff of The Late Late Show? You have not.Would you watch such a race? You probably would. Which is why Corden arranged for such a spectacle in the CBS Television City parking lot, a “historic place where people who work on The Price Is Right park their cars,” the voice-over tells us.The nine-time Olympic gold medal winner/pride of Jamaica/holder of Fastest Man in the World title did not face anything resembling a challenge from the late-night talk show host, a false-starting Owen Wilson, and the Late Late Show staff, who included Brooke from accounting, a cigarette-smoking guitarist, and a blazer-wearing supervising producer. Or did he?
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 A photo posted by Ellen (@theellenshow) on Aug 1
