And the two came together Tuesday when Ellen got in on the meme action and tweeted this meme of her on Usain's back:

This is how I’m running errands from now on. #Rio2016

What's the problem? Some Twitter users are offended by the image of a white woman "riding" a black man.

Ellen ended up tweeting that racism is the "furthest thing" from who she is.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, Usain himself retweeted her original image.
