Pharrell Williams appeared on The Ellen Show this Thursday to talk about his new projects and recent events in his life.
The “Happy” singer was also set to perform with gospel singer Kim Burrell, but Burrell was dropped from the show after she made some homophobic remarks a few days ago.
Burrell being dropped from the show was very normal, especially considering that Ellen DeGeneres is part of the LGBT community and promotes only love and kindness in her show.
“She made a statement she was doing a Facebook Live and she said some very not nice things about homosexuals so I didn’t feel that was good of me to have her on the show to give her a platform after she was saying things about me,” DeGeneres told before letting Pharrell talk about the issue.
“There’s no space, there’s no room for any kind of prejudice in 2017 and moving on. There’s no room,” Pharrell told Ellen before saying Kim is an amazing singer.
“We all have to get used to everyone’s differences and understand that this is a big, gigantic, beautiful, colorful world and it only works with inclusion and empathy. It only works that way.” – He continued.
