Ellen DeGeneres’s Speech at the 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards


Wondering how you can be a member of Ellen DeGeneres‘s squad? Be your true self. During the Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday night, the Finding Dory star gave a heartwarming speech about self-acceptance while accepting her awards for favorite voice from an animated movie, favorite animated movie, and #squad. “It means the most to me that you would want to be in my squad,” she told the crowd. “That, to me, is the biggest compliment that I would win #Squad. So here’s what I would like to do because I would like for you to be in my squad. I would like everyone to take an oath so that you can be in my squad. Raise your left hand. No, I’m sorry. Raise your right hand. Raise them both. And just repeat after me . . . I am good enough just as I am. I am supposed to be unique and different. I’m not supposed to be like everyone else. I promise to be kind to people. I promise to brush my teeth every day and floss. And watch The Ellen Show every single day. I love you all. You’re in my squad!” Aww!
