Ellen DeGeneres has been accused of being racist after posting a meme including Usain Bolt.  Ellen photoshopped herself on the back of Bolt in a picture of him flashing a casual smile while he is running the 100 meter final in Rio.  She included the caption, “This is how I am running my errands from now on. #Rio2016.”  After the posting, users began to tear into Ellen stating that the image was insensitive, even though Bolt himself found it amusing; he himself retweeted the image.  More on this story can be found on
