ELLEN DeGeneres has jokingly mocked Kylie Jenner's "thirst trap" on Instagram as she calls on followers to make sure they vote in the November election.
Wearing a denim jacket and tan pants, she pushed her hair back with her hand and held a glass of water up her lips.
"Inspired by my friend @kyliejenner, here is my thirsty photo. Don’t forget to vote!" joked Ellen, sharing Kylie's picture which saw her in a skimpy floral bikini.
Kylie's post, which was shared on September 28, read: "But are you registered to vote? click the link in my bio.. let’s make a plan to vote together."
Ellen is close with the Kardashian-Jenner family and over the summer turned to Kylie's mom Kris Jenner for advice amid the shocking "toxic" workplace allegations.
A concerned Ellen turned to Kardashian matriarch Kris for support after three senior producers were fired amid various allegations.
An insider told The Sun the momager has been a "pillar of strength" in private, meeting with Ellen and wife Portia.
They said: "If anybody knows scandal, it's Kris, and she's been a real pillar of strength for Ellen during this difficult time, she's found it very reassuring.
"Ellen has spent years being loved by viewers and this has understandably hit her hard, she wants to come back from it and prove to her audience that things are going to change.
"Kris has done it all with Keeping Up With The Kardashians, she knows how to weather a storm.
"She's been on the phone to Ellen and Portia a lot and they've met in person, they have a great bond."
The informant added: "Ellen is just thankful to have some of the stars she's classed as close friends over the years have her back both publicly and privately, Kris has been brilliant."
Although she never posted a statement, Kris showed her support for the star on social media by liking a meme reading: "I Stand By Ellen" shared by wife Portia De Rossi.
When approached by The Sun, a rep for Kris Jenner claimed this story is "inaccurate."
