What are your thoughts on the whole Ellen controversy?

I actually like her show and she seems nice on camera, but it seems like quite a few TV personalities, including Ellen, are a lot meaner when the cameras are off. It looks like show may be coming to an end as she's getting tired of the controversy, but Warner Bros. says the show isn't going away at all. It will be interesting for sure.

So, what's the "controversy" this time?

Seems like everything is a controversy these days.

America had become a total drama queen nation.

A number of things, including that she's very mean behind the scenes, not paying her employess during the pandemic, and producers of the show that have made bad comments.

What would be nice is if she and Kelly Clarkson both got canned and not replaced with some other daytime henfest that would be just as bad or worse.

BuzzFeed Reporter On 'Ellen Show' Allegations Of Sexual Misconduct, Harassment


Another week, another revelation involving accusations against a major media outfit - in this case, "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." The daytime talk show is under investigation by its parent company, WarnerMedia, after allegations first published in BuzzFeed News. "The DeGeneres Show" is a feel-good hour each day. These accusations are not, comprising claims of racism, intimidation and multiple allegations that senior executives groped and sexually harassed junior colleagues.

Ellen DeGeneres has apologized, saying she'll take a more active role in running the show. BuzzFeed News, which first broke the story, spoke to 36 former employees. We invited the reporter who did so to join us. Here's BuzzFeed News's Krystie Lee Yandoli to tell us more. Krystie Lee Yandoli, welcome.

As the doorman of a very small (legal capacity, 49) comedy club (The Other Cafe) in San Francisco from 1980-85, I was well-acquainted with Degeneres. While I liked her on-stage persona, I didn't like her off-stage personality. Even as a lowly open-miker (no pay, shared the evening with 15-20 other fledgling comedians) she never even said hello to me. She'd come in from the lesbian bar (Maude's) down the street, accompanied by a bunch of her girlfriends, and brush right past me. She never said hello, never even asked if her friends could come in free.

Anyway, not a particularly nice person. Neither did she ever socialize with the other comedians/regulars, which included the likes of Robin Williams, Paula Poundstone, Bobcat Goldthwaite, Tom Kenney (voice of Spongebob) and many others. She'd just hang with her lesbian friends. When her 5 or 10 minute routine was done, she'd just leave.

She was just kind of a bitch. Not actually nasty, just not particularly nice. No one really liked her. The whole "nice" thing was pretty much just her schtick.

Oh, and when she "came out" in the 90s, that was bullsh*t. She was always "out". That was just a publicity stunt.

That's the one mean story that's been all over the news, not saying hello to one of her fellow employees. Interesting story, Thor.

Unfortunately I've grown cynical to these sorts of stories.  Prepare for her big "comeback" in a few years.  Sigh.  I thought her show was lame.

This is nothing new. I've heard the rumors and stories going back years that she could be a very mean nasty bitch behind the scenes to her staffers and fans. There's a difference between being caught having a bad day which happens to everyone especially the famous and what seems in this case, being two faced because I read dozens and dozens of first hand accounts of her being awful or rude to somebody. Seems to me that she grew tired of her show and putting on a happy face and dancing with the house wives in the audience who she would never in a million years associate with off camera. 

That being said, I don't wish her show to be cancelled over it. Why should it be?

Me too but it wasn't aimed at people like me or maybe you. It was easy fluff for stay at home mothers and retirees. Her dry jokes never made me laugh. 
But oddly enough my personal favorite comedian David Spade is on her show frequently and seemed to always get along with her. Jay Leno stuck up for her today too. Comedians tend to protect each other in these situations which I respect.

If it's still popular in the ratings, why cancel?
