Share on Facebook

Even after Ellen Degeneres issued what was supposed to be a heartfelt apology, stories of her mean nature keep appearing.

And now, horrific allegations have come to light with some disturbing details about how Ellen Degeneres allegedly bullied an 11-year-old.

This could really be the end for the star.

A man has come forward to reveal the details of the time he spent with the talk-show host before she became the famous woman that she is today. And let me tell you, the details are uncomfortable to read.

The infamous host of The Ellen Show has been batting off accusation after accusation… and now, the show is reportedly under investigation following reports of “mistreatment.”

Though she has built her on-screen persona around being outspoken against injustice and generous to the needy, many people have claimed that, in real life, she is quite the opposite.

Which is certainly a far cry from the relatable and humble TV host we all know and love… Or we thought we knew and loved.

Cracks have certainly begun to show, and rumors of the somewhat nastier personality behind the famous smiling blonde-haired, blue-eyed face have been intensifying.

Now, more than ever before, people are starting to turn against the star as detrimental stories continue to resurface.

For example…

This Twitter user came forward with the story about Ellen’s head writer, Karen Kilgariff. Karen was under Ellen’s employment for 5 years until she took part in a writer’s strike. Boom. Fired. And a word was never exchanged between the pair again.

This woman claims that her friend used to work as a writer on the show and, in the whole 2 years of her employment, Ellen didn’t greet her once. In fact, none of the staff were allowed to speak to the star of the show. Apparently.

In a recent, rather weird segment on her talk show, the sixty-two-year-old rated her staff’s babies after telling us “my staff [have] a lot of beautiful additions to their families. Clearly they had to be rated.” Did they Ellen? Did they really?

And, as a result, her ratings have taken a huge blow.

With previous seasons of the show raking in an average of 4.5 million viewers.

The Ellen Show had its season-low rating of around 1.5.

So much so that, at one point in time, fans were convinced that the worst had happened, but the producers ended up confirming that the show is not going to be axed… Yet.

According to Buzzfeed News, 1 current employee, as well as 10 former ones have rallied around together to reveal their “truths” about the toxic culture behind the scenes of the show.

But they revealed that it wasn’t just Ellen that was the cause of the toxicity, there were also other bosses and managers that made their lives much more difficult on set.

“That ‘be kind’ bullshit only happens when the cameras are on. It’s all for the show. I know they give money to people and help them out, but it’s for show.”

She was employed there for a total of eighteen months and in that time, she faced microaggressions and comments that made her feel uncomfortable.

“I’m sorry, I only know the names of the white people who work here.” The employee also claimed a producer commented on her and another Black employees’ hairstyles, allegedly stating: “Oh wow, you both have box braids; I hope we don’t get you confused.” “Whenever I brought up an issue to my white male boss, he would bring up some random story about some random Black friend that he had and how they managed to get over stuff. He would use his Black friend as some way to say, ‘I understand your struggle,’ but it was all performative bullshit.”

As reports are in that The Ellen Show is officially under investigation.

WarnerMedia, who own and syndicate the show, are believed to be the ones launching the internal investigation into what’s happening behind the scenes.

Ellen herself has been forced to speak out.

Ellen wrote a letter to her staff where she said that the culture behind the scenes was not a reflection of the values she started the show with and vowed to do better in the future.

“On day one of our show, I told everyone in our first meeting that The Ellen DeGeneres Show would be a place of happiness – no one would ever raise their voice, and everyone would be treated with respect,” the talk show host wrote in a letter to her staff.”

“Obviously, something changed, and I am disappointed to learn that this has not been the case. And for that, I am sorry. Anyone who knows me knows it’s the opposite of what I believe and what I hoped for our show.”

And “relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I’d want them done. Cleary some didn’t.”

“I’m also learning that people who work with me and for me are speaking on my behalf and misrepresenting who I am and that has to stop. As someone who was judged and nearly lost everything for just being who I am, I truly understand and have deep compassion for those being looked at differently, or treated unfairly, not equal, or – worse – disregarded. To think that any one of you felt that way is awful to me.”

“We all have to be more mindful about the way our words and actions affect others, and I’m glad the issues at our show were brought to my attention. I promise to do my part in continuing to push myself and everyone around me to learn and grow. It’s important to me and to Warner Bros. that everyone who has something to say can speak up and feels safe doing so.”

While other celebrities such as Brad Garrett and Lea Thompson have already expressed their views of how Ellen needs to take responsibility for her actions, now another person from her past has come forward with some disturbing details.

He claims he was “bullied” by Ellen as a child and it has shaped his entire adult life.

  via : Facebook  

He told the outlet this: “I would dread going to [my mom’s] office to see her after school or on a day if I was sick and Ellen was there. “She would criticize my weight. I would try to do homework in the office, she’d call me stupid, she’d call me fat. She would criticize my clothes.”

  via : Getty  

“I was just a boy and this was a grown woman who took pleasure in seeing me become visibly upset. “I don’t think there’s any excuse for it. I was a defenseless kid. What could I have told her back?”

  via : Getty  

“It has an effect if somebody in a superior position to you, who’s much older, goes ”You’re fat. You might want to lose some of that weight, chunky boy.'”

If this is true, this could really be the final nail in the coffin for The Ellen Show.
