Ellen DeGeneres will in no way, shape or form give singer Kim Burrell a platform to stand or speak on.

Burrell recently came under fire after making a flurry of controversial anti-gay remarks, which not only led being berated on social media and the cancellation of her radio show, but also the cancellation of her booked appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Earlier this week, Ellen tweeted: “For those asking, Kim Burrell will not be appearing on my show.”

DeGeneres further discussed Kim’s offensive remarks with Pharrell Williams on Wednesday when he appeared on the popular daytime talk show. “I didn’t think that’d be good for me to have her on the show to give her a platform after she’s saying things about me,” she told the producer, who is currently promoting his film, Hidden Figures. 

Pharrell was slated to perform his track “Victory” on Ellen alongside Kim, who was featured on the project; however, he was forced to change songs when the talkshow host demanded Kim not come.

“There’s no space, no room for any kind of prejudice in 2017,” Williams told DeGeneres. “She’s a fantastic singer. I love her like I love everybody else. We all have to get used to everyone’s differences and understanding. This is a big, gigantic, beautiful, colorful world and it only works with inclusion and empathy.”

HipHollywood caught up with Pharrell to talk about his collaboration with Burrell well before the sermon hit Web, but his response was less than enthusiastic. “Kim was just one of the greatest,” he quickly said. “She’s unbelievable.”
