Here’s How Usain Bolt Reacted To Ellen’s ‘Racist’ Photo

In the past 24 hours, a photo of Usain Bolt and Ellen Degeneres has gone VERY viral.

It shows Ellen Degeneres photoshopped onto the sprinter’s back as he runs in a race in the Games.

The visual gag copped a heap of backlash on Twitter, even though it was the typical run-of-the-mill joke you’d expect from Ellen.

But critics were quick to point out that a visual of the fair-skinned DeGeneres riding the Jamaican track star was culturally insensitive. And the tweets, they were a-plenty!

So what does Usain think of the gag?

Well, he retweeted it - so I guess he was LOLing about it like most of us.
