There were a lot of people on Twitter upset about who Ellen DeGeneres was sitting next to at Sunday's Dallas Cowboys' Game. She was spotted in one of the suites next to former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura. 

She was bombarded with hateful tweets and memes after the photo went viral. 

"People were upset," DeGeneres said. "They thought, why is a gay Hollywood liberal sitting next to a conservative Republican president?... A lot of people were mad. And they did what people do when they're mad... they tweet."

She addressed the tweets and her friendship with the former President and his wife in opening monologue yesterday. 

In case you can't watch this because you're at work. This is the meat and potatoes of what she said. 

"Here's the thing: I'm friends with George Bush. In fact, I'm friends with a lot of people who don't share the same beliefs that I have," DeGeneres continued. "We're all different and I think that we've forgotten that that's okay that we're all different... but just because I don't agree with someone on everything doesn't mean that I'm not going to be friends with them."

I wish more people thought this way. She went on, "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. Doesn't matter."

You see it every single day. People are fighting on Facebook and Twitter and hating one another because they are in another political party or support something that another person does not. This divide is breaking up families, friendships, and making the World an ugly place. 

Be kind to one another. And if you don't agree with what someone is saying, just keep scrolling. You can also always mute them so you don't see their posts or unfriend them completely. 

Life is too short to argue constantly with people.
