"I love Ellen. I totally support her sexuality, but she could have been a better sport and heard the girl out. Censorship doesn't solve anything. I think a dialogue between the two ladies could have been handled well, with them talking to each other respectfully."

"Ellen missed an opportunity for an important conversation. Maybe she could have given Kim a new perspective. I just wish Ellen had been more open to having a conversation with her. But I also realize that Ellen may be tired of the debate, and I can understand that."

"I agree with Ellen. I don't think she was being too thin-skinned. I understand why Ellen wouldn't want Kim on the show. Ellen is an icon for the LGBT community; why sully her reputation by having a homophobic guest on her TV show?"

"I agree with Ellen. She can do what she wants with her show. Kim has no business [being] on her show if she's opposed to homosexuality. I support Ellen's decision. Kim shouldn't be making money on Ellen's back if she's going to bash her lifestyle."
