Ellen DeGeneres Remembers “tWitch” in Touching Tribute
“I just wanted to say the past 11 days have been really tough for everyone,” she said on Instagram Dec. 23. “Everyone is in pain and trying to make sense of it and we’ll never make sense of it.”
While Ellen acknowledged that the holidays are a hard time for many in general, she hopes her followers can pay tribute to tWitch in a special way.
“I think the best thing that we can do is to laugh and hug each other and play games and dance and sing,” she said. “That’s the way we honor him. We do the things that he loved to do, which is dancing. He loved music. He loved games.”
Ellen also asked The Ellen DeGeneres Show viewers to be kind to friends and strangers alike.
“Hug each other and love each other and let people know we’re there for them and check in on people,” she said. “I know it’s not a happy holiday, but he was pure light as everybody in the comment section said. If you knew him, you knew that. If you didn’t know him, you saw that. Let’s honor him and think about him and send love to one another.”
