Burrell made headlines recently when she was captured preaching on camera. The 44-year-old referred to "the perverted homosexual spirit" during her sermon. In a later video she said: "I love you and God loves you but God hates the sin in you and me."

"To every person who is dealing with the homosexual spirit, that has it, I love you and God loves you but God hates the sin in you and me. Anything that is against the nature of God.”

Ellen announced that Burrell would not be featuring on the show with a simple tweet.

The news has been well received by fans.

Burrell is currently working with Pharrell on the song I See Victory from the soundtrack of the film Hidden Figures.

The film tells the incredible true story of a trio of African-American women working at Nasa in 1962.

In response to the videos of Burrell’s sermons, Pharrell shared an image condemning hate speech.
