Diane Keaton (L) defended the increasingly embattled daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.

Both Katy Perry and Kevin Hart chimed in with messages of support to the embattled television personality, auctioning off declarations of how "positive" and "respectful" she is.

"I promise to do my part in continuing to push myself and everyone around me to learn and grow. Anyone who knows me knows it's the opposite of what I believe and what I hoped for our show".
