Mark Ruffalo Calls Out Ellen DeGeneres Over George W. Bush Comments

Earlier this week, TV host Ellen DeGeneres went to a Dallas Cowboys game and was spotted sitting next to former President George W. Bush. Many people were confused with DeGeneres' and Bush's interaction because both of them have very different views in many aspects. One of the people who were surprised to see the host with Bush is Avengers: Endgame star Mark Ruffalo.

DeGeneres was quick to defend on their relationship, she explained, "Just because I don't agree with someone on everything doesn't mean that I'm not gonna be friends with them." She adds, "When I say, ‘Be kind to one another,' I don't mean only the people that think the same way that you do. I mean be kind to everyone. It doesn't matter."

Obviously, DeGeneres' comment earned some divided opinions from the viewers, and when Vanity Fair tweeted about Ellen's comment on "kindness", here's what Mark Ruffalo had to say about it: "Sorry, until George W. Bush is brought to justice for the crimes of the Iraq War, (including American-lead torture, Iraqi deaths & displacement, and the deep scars—emotional & otherwise—inflicted on our military that served his folly), we can't even begin to talk about kindness."

Ruffalo's tweet didn't come as a surprise to fans because the actor is known to be very passionate about using his platform to speak about his political views and tries to spread awareness to his followers. In this case, most of the fans supported Ruffalo's efforts to let the younger generations recognize, as a fan puts it, Bush's disastrous legacy.

Reports on Ruffalo returning to the MCU's Phase 4 are yet to be known but the actor will voice Bruce Banner in the upcoming animated series, What If…?
