De som tilbringer mye tid på Twitter (eventuelt Jodel) har trolig fått med seg ryktene om Ellen DeGeneres.
Det sies nemlig at den berømte talkshow-verten – som tilsynelatende har godhet i DNA-et sitt – egentlig er en drittkjerring.
Historiene om slemme-Ellen skal være velkjente i Hollywood, men av ukjente grunner har de aldri nådd frem til folk flest.
Den seneste uken har mange ugunstige rykter om Ellen blitt delt på Twitter.
Ingen har selvfølgelig håndfaste bevis, så ta det med en klype salt. Men gjengangeren er at 62-åringen verken er hyggelig mot egne ansatte, servicearbeidere eller folk flest når kameraene er skrudd av.
Det startet med en tråd av komiker og podcast-profil Kevin T. Porter.
– Akkurat nå trenger vi litt godhet. Du vet, slik Ellen Degeneres alltid snakker om!, starter han, og legger til et smilefjes og et hjerte.
– Hun er også et av de slemmeste menneskene som lever.
– Svar på denne [tweeten] med de med sinnssyke historiene du har hørt om Ellen som er slem og jeg matcher hver eneste en med 2 dollar til @LAFoodBank, avslutter han.
Right now we all need a little kindness. You know, like Ellen Degeneres always talks about! 😊❤️
She’s also notoriously one of the meanest people alive
Respond to this with the most insane stories you’ve heard about Ellen being mean & I’ll match every one w/ $2 to @LAFoodBank

Kevin lover altså å donere mat til trengende for hver eneste kjip historie han får om Ellen. Og jaggu fikk han svar.
Blant annet fra RuPaul’s Drag Race-profilen Detox:
An old friend worked on her lot & smiled & said “good afternoon” to her one day & she became unhinged. “Who do you think you are? You don’t look at me” yada yada. She said Portia was with her & seemed embarrassed & tried to calm her down. Has forever changed my opinion of her.

Og en haug med andre:
B) A new staff member was told “every day she picks someone different to really hate. It’s not your fault, just suck it up for the day and she’ll be mean to someone else the next day. They didn’t believe it but it ended up being entirely true.

My sister worked for the Ellen Show for two years. This is from her: “I saw Ellen in the hallways every day and would say hello and she never once said hello back. She wouldn’t smile. She wouldn’t even acknowledge me at all. For two seasons.”

Working for her, I was instructed that I can’t look her in the eye and never ever say hi to her first. “But don’t worry, she definitely won’t be saying hi to you in the first place.” She creates the most toxic environment for her staff.

After working for Ellen for over 5 years, close friend left to have baby, & found different job on a union network show (benefits etc), Ellen BEGGED her to return then fired her after 1 week, no reason given, and friend struggled for long time w new baby and no benefits etc.

When I was working on @midnight, our stage manager (coolest mf’er I’ve ever worked with) told us to never work for Ellen. He told us she has signs up in her office that say “Do not look the host in the eye”.

I worked @RealFoodDaily, served her & Porsha at brunch. She wrote a letter to the owner & complained about my chipped nail polish (not that it was on her plate but just that it was on my hand). I had worked till closing the night before & this was next morn, almost got me fired.

Heard recently that Ellen, the supposed animal lover, has a bad habit of adopting really cute kittens and puppies but as they get older she’ll get tired of them and force friends, family or staff to adopt them.

Karen Kilgariff was her head writer for 5 years until the writers’ strike. When Karen wouldn’t cross the picket line she was fired and Ellen never spoke to her again.

she is notoriously a nightmare in the hair world. my friend did ellen’s hair at our salon and apparently ellen rushed it all-
acting psychotic. then devoted an episode of her show to how much she hated her hair. she bashed the color and said my friend looked like ronald mcdonald.

My friend wrote for the Ellen Show for two years and told me Ellen didn’t greet her once. In fact, upon employment, staff were told they weren’t allowed to talk to her.
— Cathy Messier (@cathytown) March 20, 2020
It’s common knowledge that Ellen is a horrid person to everybody but the celebrity elite. I don’t give a shit about how they’re all friends. How do these people treat their staff? Their grocery store clerks? Waitstaff and retail workers? That’s what actually matters!

Told my best friend who hates Ellen about this thread and she sent me this pic.twitter.com/e1LHVBCDZI

Nå fyrer en av YouTubes aller største beauty-profiler opp ryktene ved å fortelle om sin opplevelse som gjest.
Nikkie valgte nettopp The Ellen DeGeneres Show for å fortelle om tiden etter at hun stod frem som transkjønnet.
I forkant av intervjuet var hun tilsynelatende i ekstase av å endelig være invitert til programlederen.
Nederlenderen skrøt av Ellen da hun var der, men i ettertid ser det ut til at opplevelsen ikke levde heeelt opp til forventningene.
nikkietutorials not giving a single fuck and calling out ellen degeneres’ rude behavior when she visited her show while remaining classy is the energy i like to see pic.twitter.com/oHoBTjHvrA

I snutten ovenfor sier Nikkie, gitt at oversettelsen er riktig, at Ellen ikke hilste på henne før intervjuet.
Den nederlandske programlederen spør om det er litt mer kald og distansert stemning hos Ellen enn hos ham, noe hun bekrefter med humor.
– Bare litt…
I et annet klipp ser vi henne snakke om forskjellene på amerikanske og nederlandske talkshows, og hun erkjenner at det «bare er sånn der» – altså mer profesjonelt og distansert. Så det gjelder ikke bare Ellen.
Avslutningsvis sier YouTube-stjernen at det var en stor ære å være på scenen med Ellen, men…
– Det var ikke like fint som jeg hadde sett for meg.
Ellen DeGeneres har i skrivende stund ikke kommentert ryktene eller uttalelsene til NikkieTutorials.
