While Ellen DeGeneres‘ show has been subject to several allegations, some celebrities have extended their support behind the host. Meanwhile, the show has crashed its ratings after the shocking revelations.
Led by a manipulative stand
The war kicked off way back in 2016 when comedian Kathy Griffin mentioned Ellen in her memoir. Speaking to the publication, she told, “The only angry call I got was from Ellen DeGeneres, which is, by the way, not fun to get when you’re like, a female comic who loves her and her accomplishments. She was extremely upset, and I think she had a thought that she was going to, like, put me in my place, or whatever, but as you know I’m not shut-uppable.”

Two years later, Ellen was interviewed by the New York Times for her impression in an article titled “Ellen DeGeneres Is Not as Nice as You Think.” There, she said, “There’s been times someone wants a picture, and while I’m doing a selfie, they’re like: ‘You’re not dancing!’. Of course, I’m not dancing. I’m walking down the street.”

Going back to last year, Ellen earned criticism following her invite to Kevin Hart to make an appearance on her show which was just one month after his resignation as host of the Oscars. His step down came owing to his homophobic remarks in the past. At that time, Ellen faced a backlash from members of the LGBTQ+ community in her intention to defend the controversial figure.

The same year, Ellen earned criticism after she was captured alongside former president George W Bush at a sports game. Addressing the context, her response came, “People were upset. They thought, ‘Why is a gay Hollywood liberal sitting next to a conservative Republican president?’ Here’s the thing: I’m friends with George Bush. In fact, I’m friends with a lot of people who don’t share the same beliefs that I have. We’re all different, and I think that we’ve forgotten that that’s okay that we’re all different.”
