Ellen DeGeneres honors Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss after tragic death: ‘We’ll never make sense of it’
Ellen DeGeneres took to social media to honor Stephen “tWitch” Boss after his tragic death.
DeGeneres uploaded a teary-eyed video on Friday urging her followers to “honor” the late DJ during the holiday season. “The past eleven days have been really tough for everyone,” DeGeneres began.
“Everyone is in pain and trying to make sense of it, and we’ll never make sense of it,” she continued. “The holidays are hard, I think, anyway, but to honor tWitch I think the best thing that we can do is to laugh, hug each other, play games and dance and sing. That’s the way we honor him, is we do the things that he loved to do, which is dancing.”
The comedian added: “He loved music, he loved games, so we do that. “And I know it seems hard, it seems impossible, but that’s how we honor him.”

“So, happy holidays everybody,” she said, before adding: “it’s not a happy holiday, but…”
“[Boss] was pure light, as everybody in the comments said,” DeGeneres continued. “If you knew him, you knew that. If you didn’t know him you saw it. Let’s honor him and think about him and send love to one another.”
