Ellen DeGeneres just did it again. No, she didn’t give someone a cheque, discover a new YouTube sensation or lay some truths about being gay. We’re certain she does those things every day, but this is a bit different.
The talk show host was awarded the honour of favourite humanitarian at the People’s Choice Awards last night, but the speech she gave afterwards was as hilarious as it was touching.
“This is a crazy,” she began. “So, so deserved. But this is crazy.” Subtle, hilarious… we’re listening.
Shortly into her speech, Ellen offered her unique thoughts on the idea of awarding someone for being a decent person.
“I have to say, It’s a little strange to actually get an award for being nice and generous and kind, which is what we’re all supposed to do with one another. That’s the point of being a human.” Right? That’s a mic drop if we’ve ever heard one. But actually, there’s more. So much more.
