People are finally starting to see the real Ellen DeGeneres behind the screens and It’s not looking pretty. The daytime TV talk show host Ellen DeGeneres’ character is in question yet again and this isn’t the first time, It appears that the fun and comedian we see on Tv is just a disguise.
Replacing her own crew with non-union workers during the pandemic underscores how the talk show’s host cherry TV person is miles away from who she is behind the closed doors.
These rumours began when a former writer for the talk show shared a tabloid that the host treated her staff like garbage and a former employee said that once the cameras are off Ellen becomes a totally different person in comparison to the one we see on our screens.
“We’d watch her in rehearsals smiling and winning us over with her charm and comic timing. Then the director would yell cut, her face would fall and she’d level a glare at the writers ‘why do you keep writing these unfunny jokes’, “
Late last month, a twitter thread by a comedian and podcast host Kevin T. Porter brought stories to twitter about DeGeneres transgressions from refusing to make eye contact with the interns to get a waitress fired for having a chipped nail and more.
Although none of these stories has been confirmed by anyone still in the industry, it’s raising more suspicion towards Ellen’s character in reality.
Outside her daytime audience and her celebrity friends she engages with, It seems that a good number of regular people including who have worked for her find her to be reliably cruel.
