"Wasn't [DeGeneres] the one who wouldn't let Donald Trump on her show because she doesn't agree with his political views?" one user asked.

Others shared similar sentiments on Twitter, calling out DeGeneres for her past statement and even referring to her as a "hypocrite."

But some felt that DeGeneres was being unfairly scrutinized.

On Monday, DeGeneres faced a significant amount of backlash after she was photographed laughing while sitting next to Bush at a Dallas Cowboys football game over the weekend.

Most users took issue with the fact that DeGeneres, an openly gay woman, was friendly with Bush, whose controversial decisions during the Iraq war have led many to refer to him as a "war criminal," and was notoriously conservative when it came to LGBTQ rights during his presidency.

The host addressed the controversy during a taping of her show on Tuesday, urging others to "be kind" to those who might have different views than them.
