After been praise how amazing she was and appreciating how much she is giving out to put lives back together, Miley replied saying “Thank you, don’t make me cry,” I can’t really talk about it (because) it just makes me really upset.”
“Thank you, don’t make me cry,” I can’t really talk about it (because) it just makes me really upset.”

In a clip that will air on Ellen’s show on 7 September (17), J.J., who plays for the Houston Texans, thanked the 59-year-old comedienne.
Thank you to you, thank you to Walmart,” he said. “This is I promise you that I will make this money go a long way. I promise you that I will help these victims directly. I promise that it will help rebuild Houston. You’re incredible.
