VIDEO: Ellen DeGeneres Tears Up During Presidential Medal of Freedom Ceremony

After almost not being allowed inside the White House, Ellen DeGeneres had an emotional moment while being presented the Presidential Medal of Freedom!

The talk show host was one of 21 stars who received the medal from President Barack Obama at a ceremony in the East Room on Tuesday (November 22) in Washington, D.C.

The Presidential Medal of Freedom is the highest honor that a U.S. civilian can receive and Ellen teared up while being given her medal.

“In a career spanning three decades, Ellen DeGeneres has lifted our spirits and brought joy to our lives as a stand-up comic, actor, and television star. In every role, she reminds us to be kind to one another and to treat people as each of us wants to be treated. At pivotal moments, her courage and candor helped change the minds and hearts of millions of Americans, accelerating our nation’s constant drive toward equality and acceptance for all,” the announcer said while she stood on stage with Obama. “Again and again, Ellen DeGeneres has shown us that a single individual can make the world a more fun, more open, more loving place, so long as we ‘just keep swimming.’”

Other stars who received the medal included Tom Hanks, Diana Ross, Robert De Niro, Bruce Springsteen, Robert Redford, Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels, basketball players Michael Jordan and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill and Melinda Gates, and more.

SNL's Lorne Michaels Breaks Silence on Kanye West's Backstage Outburst

Who could forget hearing Kanye West‘s infamous leaked backstage rant right before his Saturday Night Live performance last month where he found out his set had been dismantled.

“Look at that s–t. They took my f–kin’ stage off SNL without asking me and now I’m bummed,” the 38-year-old entertainer could be heard saying. “Now I ain’t gonna do this. We’re breaking the motherf–king Internet.”

Now, SNL‘s longtime producer Lorne Michaels is responding to the rant, saying, “That happened in his dressing room. Kanye‘s been on the show a lot of years, and it’s always different. He’s an artist, you know? A great artist.”

Lorne added to E! News, “When he did the 40th anniversary show—which I wanted him to be part of it—I had no idea what he was going to do, even 10 minutes before we went on the air. He arrived that day. But he just always delivers, and he’s Kanye.”

I was like, ‘Guys, pick a lane. Like we’re going to fix everything tonight.’ And also like, ‘You’re all rich. Why are you yelling at me about corporate greed?”
