Remember Ellen DeGeneres' Drag Queen Jokes About Liza Minnelli? Well, Liza Has Something To Say About Them!

| Filed under: Liza MinnelliEllen DeGeneres

ellen degeneres liza minnelli drag queen comment

When Ellen DeGeneres opened up the Oscars on Sunday, we were totally hoping for hilarity! What we actually got? A whole bunch of shade!

And Liza Minnelli was dealt a whole palm tree!

Although the 67-year-old star made some faces when the camera panned over to her, Liza is finally speaking out about her thoughts on the Oscar hosts' drag queen jokes!

She said:

"I think she thought it would be funny, but she never stopped after she said it and said, 'My friend Liza Minnelli.' So I think it went a little astray on her. I don't think she meant any harm at all. She's a wonderful lady."

Liza handled that with such grace!

Ellen should maybe think twice about poking fun of this AH-Mazing lady next time!

    That was much more than Ellen deserved, under the circumstances.

    Please.. Liza is known for being impersonated by drag queens. There was nothing wrong with this joke..

    If it would have been a straight person who made those comments, you would be all over calling them homophobic.

    Ellen was just saying what everyone was thinking that night. And I did think she was funny. Some people should have some more self-deprecation.

    Regardless, Liza is far from amazing!!! She has never has had and never will have any talent. She got her dad's looks and her dad's singing voice…horrible.

    Ellen is such an asshole.

    Meh. I likes Liza's festive blue and the matching hair stripe on her. She can get away with it with her ebullient personality. She can't, however, get away without a bra under satin.

    I usually love Ellen, and I think she did a great job. (Except didn't someone already do the pizza thing once?) I just thought it was uncharacteristically mean-spirited of her, and out of synch with the rest of her hosting.

    super bitchy thing to say. but why would ellen care?

    I am pretty surprised Ellen made that comment and I think she is probably regretting it. Just not like her to be mean spirited.

    Perez, I'm seeing who you are now. An instegator And a bully. You are a very very sick and sad little man. Seeing what you looked like as a kid, you were probably bullied. Why would you keep doing that? Do you want your Son going to school and everyone knowing what a jerk his dad is? Do you want that for him??

    Re: Elvis – yeah sure thats why she has how many records out, had done how many films, acted opposite people like dudley moore and Robert De-Nero, was the youngest female to win a Leading actress Tony Award. Won on top of that A Grammy, Emmy and Academy Award. She also won A Golden Globe as well as an Academy award for Cabaret. Which she worked with BOB FOSSE on. And she has A Grammy Living Legend Award…. if that doesn't say talent. i don't no what does Elvis…

    Its not the end of the world, but the comment Ellen made about Liza seemed out of the blue and overly harsh and rude. Not Ellen's usual style. Sure Liza looks a bit kooky but … I donno. Just seemed cruel. Ellen kinda sucked @ the Oscars .. felt like a lot of dead air time they weren't sure how to fill - that being said I usually love Ellen

    Re: Aussie – IKR? Ellen is a genuine sweet heart who would never hurt someone's feelings intentionally! She has apologized and invited Liza to come on her show. We've all said things that are tasteless and offensive at one point in our lives. As long as we realize our mistakes and apologize for them it's all good.

    What would you expect from Ellen Degenerate?

    I thought Ellen's comment about Lisa was nasty, wasn't funny & served NO purpose.

  18. Dan says – reply to this

    The joke was fine. I don't think she took any offence to it. Ellen's not out there to publicly bash anyone in her OSCARS monologue. lol. She's a comedienne. Its what she does.

    ELLEN DEGENERATE CAN TALK, SHE'S A PERVERTED DEVIANT WHO RAPES OTHER WOMEN.

    It was an outrage how Ellen, is old enough to know Judy Garland is Liza's mother and invited as a VIP by the Academy who produces the Oscars, and that Liza is an Oscar winner for best actress, could be so cold hearted and common in her treatment towards Liza. She appeared for "mama" and the seventy-five year anniversary of the Wizard of Oz. Liza, who is still recuperating after having both hips, and knee replaced. It's appalling that people are so callous not to treat her with respect if only for her fragility. Thank you Perez for speaking out.

    Liza Minnelli proves she's one noble lady in her response to Ellen. However, if timing is anything, Ellen is clearly taking longer than she should. Time can only lead one to draw other conclusions about her true character that in the end will prove who she is. I hope she's who we thought, or it's downhill from here.

    Name one drag queen who impersonates Liza Minnelli in a venue most people would know of. It was a crude comment about a woman who deserves better as an Oscar winner for best actress and as an invited Guest to honor her mother's role in the seventy-fifth anniversary of The Wizard of Oz. There are quite a few books on etiquette, do check one out.

    Liza is not all that amazing. Please stop defending that drugged out has been.

    Actually, Barbra Streisand and Cher have been the greater focus for female impressionists to do, but you make a point. What would have happened if Ellen said Cher or Barbra Streisand looked like men? There would be no doubt Ellen would be walking around with a size 6 Prada Pointy Pump sticking up out of her black roots. Can someone do a yearbook check on the darling dyke of daytime, her turkey neck wobbles too much for a 56 year old.

    Liza didn't like be called Drag queen? Well,this is very strange to me. What's the problem with drag queens?

    Ellen's been out getting too much sun! Girl, talk about looking like a man…Ellen looks so much older than her face shows. Gobble gobble … If loose your job, have a talk with Perdue.
