Change.org petition calls for Ellen to apologise to Liza

LAST UPDATED // Wednesday, 05 March 2014 22:11 Written by // Cec Busby

New York theatre critic Steve Schonberg has started a petition on change.org chastising Ellen for her joke at the Oscars in which she referred to Liza Minnelli as a female impersonator.

The petition calls for DeGeneres to make a public apology to Minnelli.

Schonberg says as an avid Liza fan for more than 20 years, he’s received quite a few questions about how the Oscar, Grammy and Tony award winner was treated during Sunday's Academy Award's telecast.

He comments: “I will say this: I think it showed an absolute disrespect for someone who has made tremendous contributions to the arts and is one of the greatest talents of the 20th century.”

Do you think Ellen should apologise?
