Ellen DeGeneres is practicing what she preaches.

The famed host always signs off of her daily show asking viewers to be kind to one another. On Monday's show, the star reminded her fans of the message after facing backlash over sitting next to former president George W. Bush at a football game in Texas on Sunday.

As DeGeneres explained, she and wifePortia De Rossiwere invited to the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers game by Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' daughter, Charlotte Jones, where they were seated in a suite. "He's got fancy friends and I don't mean fancy like Real Housewife fancy. I mean like fancy," she quipped.

Among those "fancy" friends were former First Lady Laura Bush and her famous husband, who ended up next to DeGeneres. When cameras captured the two together in the stands, criticism sparked.
