Ellen DeGeneres had a tweet for the books Wednesday afternoon in regards to Katy Perry’s birthday and her breasts.

“Happy birthday, @KatyPerry! It’s time to bring out the big balloons!,” the talk show host captioned on a photo of herself staring at Perry’s chest from all of about six inches away.

I know that lots of people probably came into this article expecting me to trash Ellen. There would obviously be a ton of outrage if a guy tweeted a similar photo. That should go without saying.

However, we’d all be foolish not to point out the balls you have to have in order to fire this tweet off, especially given all the Harvey Weinstein stuff going on. That’s the ultimate “don’t give a f**k” attitude that has made Ellen so famous.

Look, any guy who says they didn’t laugh at this photo is absolutely lying to you. At the very least they cracked a smile, even if it was out of pure shock.

The timing might be a bit sensitive, but still one of the better tweets we’ve seen in a long time. I’d rather have Ellen Degeneres cracking jokes than be lectured about the environment and gun control.
