American TV host Ellen Degeneres lands in hot water after posting a meme picture of herself riding on the back of Olympic athlete Usain Bolt with the caption: "This is how I’m running errands from now on. #Rio2016"
Critics quickly labelled the image as 'racist' and 'insensitive'. Others said the image is not racist, but the caption is 'offensive' and has 'racist implications'.
This is a classic case of a joke gone wrong.
Ellen may have meant no harm, but she got many people upset.
