Ellen DeGeneres’s Brother Vance is Angry No One Supported His Facebook Defense of His Sister

Share

Ellen DeGeneres’s brother, Vance, has come to her defense. But he’s upset that none of his Facebook friends have rallied behind him, or her.

First Vance put a simple sentence: “I stand with Ellen.”

Then he wrote on Facebook: “Ok, I need to say something. My sister is being viciously attacked. And let me assure you – it is all bullshit. I put up a simple statement yesterday that said “I stand by Ellen.” Only a handful of my Facebook “friends” responded to it. If you don’t support Ellen, then you don’t support me, so please unfriend me. I’m sick and tired of my sister being attacked. She always has – and always will – stand against bullying of any kind. She’s a smart, strong woman who has made a positive difference in the world. And to my friends who did respond with support for Ellen and my family, thank you so much. It means a lot.”

Later he added on Twitter: “If you think Ellen would knowingly allow bullying or racism on her show, you don’t know my sister. She has been and continues to be a bright light in a dark world. She’s one of the kindest, most generous people you’ll ever meet. And one of the funniest.”

Well, at least he took his sister’s side. But it must be frightening that everything could be coming to an abrupt end.
