Ellen DeGeneres has responded to a comedian who said that she originally created a “new game” that DeGeneres played on her show Monday.
DeGeneres trotted out a game with guest Sarah Silverman that she dubbed “Tinder Live,” in which DeGeneres played matchmaker with Silverman and did some live swiping of some celebrity hotties.
Comedian Lane Moore, who has hosted her own show called “Tinder Live” for nearly five years, told DeGeneres on Twitter that it has a Wikipedia page and has been featured in The New York Times.

“I had no idea, but you’re clearly brilliant. Now I do have an idea, and I’ll go and watch,” DeGeneres tweeted in response to Moore.
Sarah Silverman also responded, acknowledging how new she is to online dating.
“Glad it all worked out,” Silverman tweeted. “Oy. I know nothing of Tinder!”

On Monday’s segment, DeGeneres flashed photos of famous actors and pop stars as Silverman decided who she might want to go on a date with. She settled on a choice between Drake and John Cena.
In Moore’s “Tinder Live,” she provides real-time dating advice as she swipes through matches, sends messages and sometimes takes phone calls.
DeGeneres has previously done similar online dating app segments on her show, including one titled “Who’d You Rather?” with guests including Demi Lovato, Charlie Puth and Rihanna.

Tinder Live is already a thing and it's the creation of the amazing @hellolanemoore.
Don't be like that, Ellen.

Ellen, Sarah: Tinder Live already exists and is the creation of the fabulous @hellolanemoore! Lane has a new book, so please invite her on the show, and you can catch up & learn about her fabulous work. Lane also has an adorable doggo. 🐾🐾

Wow, this is infuriating! I have been seeing Tinder Live for years now, @TheEllenShow needs to apologize for this and give Lane what she deserves! https://t.co/yRirGGbCnx

Sooooo given that @hellolanemoore already has this show (and it’s super great you should go see it), this really sucks https://t.co/JIl2cNjg8y

Hi Ellen! The wonderful @hellolanemoore already does a show entitled Tinder Live and tours it all over the country! It’s different than your game, so maybe your game could be called something else? Xo

I’m glad when something on the internet works out peacefully, since that happens approximately 1/100,000,000,000 of the time. @hellolanemoore rules and good on @TheEllenShow and @SarahKSilverman to acknowledge her https://t.co/WTPZoC0UFv
