Ellen bid farewell to her fans
The Ellen DeGeneres Show
On Thursday, May 27, Ellen said goodbye to her audience and her long-running daytime talk show after 19 seasons.
"Twenty years ago, when we were trying to sell the show, no one thought that this would work. Not because it was a different kind of show, but because I was different," she began.
She also added that the first time she hosted the show, she couldn't say 'Gay' or be allowed to say 'Gay.'
"I was not allowed to say 'gay.' I said it at home a lot ... I sure couldn't say 'wife,' and that's because it wasn't legal for gay people to get married, and now I say 'wife' all the time," she continues.
DeGeneres ended her final daytime show by thanking her crew, executive producers, staff, and audience.
"I hope I've inspired you to be yourself, your true, authentic self. And if someone is brave enough to tell you who they are, be brave enough to support them, even if you don't understand,"
