Ellen DeGeneres is well-known for her comedy but on her daytime talk show, she will also turn serious at times to address major news events.
Monday (15 April) was one of those days when during the taping of a show to air today, DeGeneres learned of the bombing at the Boston Marathon.
At the end of the show, she takes a moment to address the tragedy.
‘I want to tell everyone in Boston that we’re thinking about you,' DeGeneres says. 'We’re watching the news and it’s incredibly sad.’
