Ellen DeGeneres pays tribute to tWitch boss for the holidays, tells people to “hug each other” – Elite News

With the holidays just around the corner, Ellen DeGeneres urges people to try to turn a tragedy into some kind of social triumph.

Just over a week since Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss was found dead inside a Los Angeles hotel room, the comedian, on whose talk show Boss DJed for several years, recorded a moving video.

“Everyone is hurting and trying to figure it out, and we will never find it,” DeGeneres told her front-facing camera on Friday, December 23.

She continued as follows:

“Holidays are hard, I think, anyway, but to honor tWitch, I think the best thing we can do is laugh, hug, play, dance, and sing.

“This is how we honor him, we do the things he loved to do, which is dance.”

Boss worked alongside DeGeneres as an in-house DJ on her daytime talk show from 2014 until its conclusion, later serving as the show’s co-executive producer in 2020.

Boss also finished second in 2008 in So You Think You Can Dance and appeared in the movie Step Up 3D.

“He loved music, he loved gaming, so we do that,” DeGeneres continued in the video. “And I know it seems difficult, it seems impossible, but that’s how we honor it.”

The comedian also implored her followers to “hug each other and tell each other that we love each other and let people know that we are there for them and that we control people.”

She cried as she spoke these words.

In conclusion?

“[Boss] It was pure light, as everyone said in the comments,” Ellen added at the end of the footage.

“If you knew him, you knew him.

“If you didn’t know him, you saw him. Let us honor him and think of him and send love to one another.”

Boss is survived by his wife, Allison Holker, and three children: Zaia, 3, Maddox, 6, and Weslie, 14.

Holker, who confirmed her husband’s death in a statement last week to People magazine, returned to social media on Wednesday, December 21, simply writing:

“My ONE and ONLY Oh how my heart aches. We miss you a lot.”

Allison Holker shared this selfie after her husband’s suicide. May he rest in peace.

I had previously written the following about tWitch:

“It is with the greatest regret that I have to share that my husband Stephen has left us,” the choreographer said in a statement at the time.

“Stephen lit up every room he walked into. He valued family, friends and community above all else and leading with love and light meant everything to him.

“He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans.”

Allison added at the time:

“To say that he left a legacy would be an understatement, and his positive impact will continue to be felt. I’m sure not a day will go by that we don’t honor his memory.

“We ask for privacy during this difficult time for me and especially for our three children.

“Stephen, we love you, we miss you and I will always save the last dance for you.”

May Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss rest in peace.
