Ellen DeGeneres made a, shall we say, not-terribly-kind joke about actress /rumored plastic surgery devotee Liza Minnelli during her opening monologue at Sunday’s Oscars.
If you missed what transmisogynist thing Ellen did, she called Liza Minelli an impersonator and said “Good job, sir”. Lesbian icon, folks.— Emily Aviva Kapor (@EmilyAviva) March 3, 2014
I did not appreciate Ellen’s mean joke about Liza. I found it transphobic and disrespectful.— Bruce LaBruce (@BruceLaBruce) March 3, 2014
Minnelli, for the record, did not look particularly amused either. She’s repeatedly denied going under the knife.
