Liza Minnelli

Ellen Called Me a Drag Queen ...

And it Wasn't Funny

Liza Minnelli didn't like the joke Ellen DeGeneres cracked about her at the Oscars ... suggesting she was actually a drag queen.

Liza and a male companion hit up Craig's restaurant in West Hollywood Monday night ... and Liza made it clear -- Ellen's joke backfired big time. 

Liza's note to Ellen:  She should have stopped and acknowledged they were friends, but instead Ellen blew through to the next joke, so it sounded mean.

But Liza says she's sure Ellen was filled with the best of intentions.

She looks and acts drunk. Slurring stumbling. And who is the young guy pressing his lips firmly on her buttocks.

I wish Liza had sung somewhere over the rainbow at the awards show instead of whoever did it.

Ellen was dressed like a man and is married to a woman, and she insinuated that Liza looks like a man. Ellen's glass house is broken.

The non funny Ellen joke was crossing the line. Again why is it that so many of these people wanna talk about equality and being kind to one another, watch the names we use for people. Just another reason I can't stand her anymore.

She should cool it with the plastic surgery then. She's basically unrecognizable. She's lucky Ellen pointed her out - otherwise nobody wld have known who she was.

Liza should be upset with Ellen joke. Ellen is the real clown walking around thinking she is great. What has Ellen contribute to movie industry? Ellen is a talk show host and not a movie star or a legendary actress as Liza. No respect and why is Ellen hosting these awards to begin with?All I can say to Ellen is to go back into her closet where she came from!

Liza rocks. Ellen was a troll.

Only in Hollywood would a Lesbian wearing a man's suit come out and joke about a female legend who is routinely impersonated by mainly gay men.

This is entertaining?

Pathetic how far the Oscar's have decayed. Used to have class. Now it's a bad Comedy Central roast.

To MOST of the audience it was clear Ellen was making a joking reference to the fact that nearly every performance drag queen has impersonated Liza. Who is Liza foolin' with her indignant reaction? Lighten up.

I didn't think she was really calling her a drag queen, I think it was more aimed at the fact there's a lot of Liza drag queens, I think she was making sure she was the real one( jokingly), any way that's how I took it
