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.”

A video has gone viral of a group of white high school students screaming what appears to be “f*ck ni**ers,” but is there more to the disgusting clip?

The horrendous visual, which went viral earlier this week, shows three girls from Weber High School in Utah yelling the offensive phrase at the top of their lungs.

“We are shocked by the conduct of these students and the contents of the video,” Weber School District said in a statement of the 10 second video. “School officials have started an investigation and the matter is being taken very seriously.”

They added, “We are trying to determine when the video was made, where it was filmed, why the students would engage in such conduct, and how the clip ended up on social media.”

While folks around the nation are disgusted by the disturbing occurrence, some school officials might be defending the group of perceived racists teens.

The district confirmed that an IT guy is looking into the video to see if there was an original video that was put into an app to make a phrase play backwards.

So what could the girls possibly been saying? “Surgeon cuff.” Ummmm, because there’s nothing like yelling “surgeon cuff” in the middle of the day.

After watching the video: Do you think the girls are outright yelling “f*ck n*ggers?”
