Since people have been advised to stay indoors, every bit of life has turned upside down. Some dark secrets are being revealed and some are having the worst time of their lives.
Ellen DeGeneres is one of them and she clearly isn’t having a good time.
Ellen is considered as a jovial daytime host and comedian in her show ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’. But many people’s perception has changed entirely this year. Some rumors suggested that Ellen isn’t as kind as it appears. And it’s not just one day, she also treated her bodyguards with very little respect.
While many celebrities are trying their best to cater to the needs of their crew and staff, Ellen DeGeneres didn’t do such a thing. Nowadays, she is working from home. She gave up on her previous staff and didn’t pay them. She brought a new crew. Also, she called her mansion ‘jail’ while there are a lot of her fans who are in a much worse situation.
Ellen’s popularity dive
These anecdotes have changed the future of the show. The ratings of the show have declined considerably.
The news of the possible situation was reported by The Sun. It stated that the ratings for her daytime show fell 14% to a new rating of 1.2. Ellen’s show has always been a hit. This is pretty big since more people are at home now.
In comparison, Live With Kelly and Ryan reportedly have a 2.0 rating, and Dr. Phil is weighing in with a 1.5. These ratings may be an impression of the widespread reports of her behavior. It is possible that viewers are upset with how she has treated her staff, and that’s why they’ve moved on.
Ellen is ‘notoriously one of the meanest people alive’.
The rumors seem to be more credible as the members of her former staff came forward to share their stories. The Sun had a talk with her former staff member who stated, “It irritates me that people think she’s all sweetness and light and she gets away with it.”
A Twitter thread became viral posted by a podcaster, Kevin T. Porter. In the tweet, Kevin referred to Ellen DeGeneres as “notoriously one of the meanest people alive.”
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

The thread attracted plenty of people who claimed a bad experience with the star. “So, I did a small reno of a house Ellen bought so she could close the street to make it private,” one user by the name of Coach Ricky Price stated. “She would demand explanations for work, I would start to explain, and she would just grimace, roll her eyes, say ‘Ooooookay’ and walk away like I absolutely didn’t matter or exist.”

C) When she's in a bad mood staff members were highly encouraged by upper management to go into her office and do bits to cheer her up.

Some sources say that Ellen thought that the negativity for her would cease. Instead, more people fanned the flame. It’s possible that Ellen had a constant behavior earlier too. But she didn’t realize how many bad impressions she is making and moving on. People also criticized her over her reaction to George Floyd’s death.
After the incident, Ellen made a tweet that missed the point. “Like so many of you, I am angry and I am sad,” she reportedly wrote. “People of color in this country have faced injustice for far too long. For things to change, things must change. We must commit ourselves to this change with conviction and with love.”
In Finding Nemo, Dory says "you can't never let anything happen to him. Then nothing would ever happen to him." And all I can think about is that Ellen remembered how good that sounded when she said it for the movie

According to Google, The Ellen DeGeneres Show is almost over.
Ellen had a hard time gaining a positive spotlight back. Even though her show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show hasn’t been canceled yet, people can make out that the cancellation can happen soon. The New York Post reached out to producers, who stated, “Telepictures can confirm it’s untrue.”

People can’t help but notice the declining ratings. Everyone is seeking positive vibes from everywhere. So Ellen is the last celebrity anybody wants to approach. It’s best to follow people who are truly kind and are hoping for some good changes.
Even if the show manages to air for another year or two, it’s a good reminder to be good to others. It’s said that your good deeds and your respect for others will take you ahead in life.
While Ellen’s show may continue forward, hopefully, if the rumors about her behavior are true, she’s spending this time realizing the consequences of those negative actions. Sources say that the multiple rumors of her being not so kind are actually having an effect. It might be time for some big changes in the future.
It’s a possibility that since Ellen had a career worthwhile, it has got in her head. That’s why sometimes celebrities consider themselves powerful. So here’s a reminder for everyone that every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
