Ellen DeGeneres and Celine Dion burning a U.S. flag in front of a television audience of a taping for the comic’s variety show is fake news. There is no truth to a clickbait article that DeGeneres and Dion were videotaped burning the American flag. However, the two celebrities did not participate in any American bashing.
U.S.A. Daily News Posts published the story titled “VIDEO: Ellen DeGeneres And Singer Celine Dion Burns U.S Flag In Front Of Audience. Would You Support Deport Or Arrest Of Them ?” However, there is nothing more to its content.
Hoax-Alert reported that this was fake for many reasons. The major flaw was that no reliable news outlets was reporting on the absurd story, not even the celebrity gossip press, which would play to this type of content. Additionally, there is no video from the incident either, just one static image (as seen above). This image that is attached to the outrageous claim is taken from an interview DeGeneres did with Dion over a year ago.
