Tim Robbins has joined the list of celebrities who have criticized daytime talk show host and comedian Ellen DeGeneres for being friends with former president George W. Bush. The backlash started after DeGeneres was spotted at a football game last month with Bush, along with her wife Portia De Rossi of "Arrested Development."

As reported by Yahoo! Entertainment, the “Castle Rock” actor spoke out against the former U.S. president in an interview with BuzzFeed News’s “AM to DM,” saying that he should be held accountable for the things he’s done. 

“... there's certain people that are walking around right now that are responsible for a lot of death," Robbins explained. Robbins also commented that Bush lives in "an elite bubble" and has never taken responsibility for his part in the Iraq war. 

Actors John Cusack and Mark Ruffalo have also condemned the friendship between DeGeneres and Robbins with Cusack accusing her of “normalizing a mass murderer” and Ruffalo tweeting, "Sorry, until George W. Bush is brought to justice for the crimes of the Iraq War... we can’t even begin to talk about kindness."

DeGeneres had plenty of celebrities and fans on her side, though, such as Kristen Bell, Reese Witherspoon (who deleted her Tweet in support of the talk show host, according to The Hill), Blake Shelton, and Elton John. However, the overall response to DeGeneres’ friendship with Bush has been predominantly negative.

DeGeneres defended herself on her self-titled talk show last month, talking about how she and Bush shared a suite at the football game where “100,000 people in the stadium” witnessed her laughing and having a good time with the former president and became upset. 

"They thought, why is a gay Hollywood liberal sitting next to a conservative Republican president... But a lot of people were mad, and they did what people do when they’re mad — they tweet," she said.

DeGeneres continued with, “I’m friends with a lot of people who don’t share the same beliefs that I have. We’re all different, and I think we’ve forgotten that that’s OK that we’re all different.”

One of the biggest criticisms of the relationship is that DeGeneres and her wife are in a same-sex marriage, something that Bush notoriously did not support.
