Oh, Ellen. We’ve talked before about how stand-up comedian Ellen DeGeneres has turned her feel-good talk show into a parade of mean-spirited bits and cringe-inducing apologism. Just this year, she gave Kevin Hart a pass for his history of homophobia, defended befriending warmonger George W. Bush, and mocked young women because “Millenials,” amirite? But DeGeneres misstepped when she tried to mess with Millennial actress Dakota Johnson, who didn’t play along when the talk show host tried to shame her over a birthday party invite.

Here’s the clip that’s gone viral.

Johnson is an actress who has taken major risks in her career, fronting the controversial Fifty Shades trilogy, throwing herself into mind-bending and stomach-churning horror films like Suspiria and Wounds. She’s the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, so has a childhood studded with stars and surely fascinating stories. She’s there to promote her latest release, The Peanut Butter Falcon, a warm-hearted story about a young man with Down syndrome who chases his dream on a thrilling quest. Yet how does DeGeneres decide to kick off this segment: Happy birthday—why wasn’t I invited to your party?

With a smile and poise that has made many on Twitter call out stan status, Johnson responded “Actually, no. That’s not the truth, Ellen.”

The newly minted 30-year-old movie star did invite the 61-year-old daytime TV host to her birthday. DeGeneres just didn’t come. And that’s not all. Johnson noted, “Last time, last year I was on the show, and you gave me a bunch of sh*t for not inviting you. But I didn’t even know you wanted to be invited…I didn’t even know you liked me.”

DeGeneres tries to defend herself, insisting Johnson is wrong and she was definitely snubbed. Johnson answers, “Ask everybody. Ask Jonathan your producer.” DeGeneres wonders aloud, “Why didn’t I go?” She’s told she was out of town. And yeah. She was in Dallas for the Cowboys football game, where she chummed it up with George W. Bush.

Naturally, Twitter had thoughts.

The second half of the interview also had Johnson stans gleeful, as she subtly shades DeGeneres by talking about Tig Nataro, her “favorite comedian,” who no only came to the party, but also performed.

Last night, Johnson and Notaro reunited at Largo in Los Angeles. No word on where DeGeneres was or with what sneer-worthy celeb she was hanging.

Fans also pointed out the time Johnson shaded clown Jimmy Fallon on his own show.

Who do you want to see Johnson take down next? How about Shane Gillis defender David Spade?

The Peanut Butter Falcon is now available on home video and digital.
