Ellen just can't catch a break, more people than ever are jumping at the chance to expose the star for who she really is.

But after months of torment, the once-loved TV host can't take anymore. It appears that Ellen is struggling to cope with the onslaught of negative press she's been receiving.

And it's not surprising, keep scrolling to read the savage tweets...

 

Ellen has been the subject of a constant stream of abuse online, and after everything that's been said, she's finally snapped.

It seems as though things are getting too much for the star.

DeGeneres famously ends every show with the phrase "be kind to one another."

However, that seems to slip her mind once the cameras stop rolling. But despite the never-ending allegations against her, she is still trying to navigate rumors that she's "mean."

Although Ellen appears to have a warm and bubbly demeanor while on-screen...

Her off-screen character is apparently a little less favorable.

Various stories that detail Ellen's true character have circulated online for years.

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.

Those who have met the star have claimed that she is nothing more than another power-hungry, self-centered celebrity.

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.

And, in recent years, Ellen's image has been questioned more and more.

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.

Ellen's mask has slowly been slipping...

Just take Dakota Johnson's painful appearance on The Ellen Show, for example, where the host rather childishly accused the actress of not inviting her to her Malibu birthday bash. Dakota had in fact invited Ellen, and when she challenged this, you could just see the panic in her eyes after being caught out. It makes for a cringe-worthy watch.

Evidently, people who know the host have been growing tired of her flawless persona...

And, for many years now, a number of different former employees have been attempting to expose Ellen for who she truly is.

Twitter user, Kevin T. Porter, took to the social media platform with the task to expose DeGeneres.

And vowed to donate $2 per awful Ellen story to the LA foodbank. It's a win-win, especially with the high volume of responses that he received. We collected a few of the best ones for your reading pleasure...

The way she treats her staff is crazy...

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.

Staff weren't even allowed in the same room as her.

Wow, we really aren't worthy, are we?

There was the time she bullied Mariah Carey into admitting she was pregnant on The Ellen Show.

Okay, we all remember this one. In an episode that made us all want to claw our eyes out, an uncomfortable Mariah Carey was quizzed by Ellen on whether or not she was pregnant. And, when the singer wouldn't give an answer, Ellen wheeled out a bucket of champagne and pretty much forced a glass into her hand, stating, "Let's toast to you not being pregnant if you're not pregnant." Not your finest hour, Ellen.

And he reportedly sacked someone for talking to her too much.

This Twitter user came forward with a damning story that, after a mildly autistic employee talked to and simply looked at the host too often, he was fired.

Ellen doesn't want any of her celebrity buddies to mingle with the common folk.

Ellen has notoriously sucked up to the rich and famous for years, and apparently she wants to keep them all for herself. When Russell Brand wandered into the employee break area to chat with the crew, Ellen apparently got quite irritated and told him that he "doesn't have to interact with these people."

YouTube sensation and beauty blogger NikkiTutorials has also recently spoken out about being interviewed by Ellen...

NikkieTutorials, also known as Nikkie De Jager, slammed DeGeneres in two revealing interviews, describing her as “distant and cold."

Nikkie went on to speak about how she was forbidden from using the nearest bathroom backstage...

It was apparently reserved for a bigger celebrity that was due to go on next, so they made her use the public bathroom. “I was not allowed to use the nearest toilet, because it was reserved for the Jonas Brothers. Why do they get a private toilet, I thought," she said.

And the list really does go on and on, for example, staff members are reportedly encouraged to cheer Ellen up when she's in a bad mood.

There isn't enough money in the world that would ever encourage me to do that. Thank you, next.

There have been literally hundreds of people speaking out against the star...

But why would so many people come out to make up stories about one person? Food for thought.

Yet, despite all the bad press, she has been continuing her daily talk show from the comfort of her own home... Which has ruffled a few feathers.

Her crew were reportedly "furious" due to the lack of communication regarding their pay. And the main stage crew, comprised of roughly thirty people, were kept in the dark about issues like pay and working hours for over a month.

More people are coming forward about their run-ins with the host...

Ellen's bodyguard, who was hired to protect her at the Oscars, has called the host out for being “kind of demeaning."

The bodyguard in question, Tom Majercak, who was put in charge of guarding Ellen, her mother, and her wife Portia at the 2014 Oscars.

Majercak claimed that during the whole night Ellen didn't once acknowledge him, which he's never experienced his whole 10-year career, adding: “And I’ve been assigned to quite a few celebrities."

Majercak described Portia as "very pleasant," but as soon as she introduced him to Ellen, things “started going negatively."

via: Twitter

“Ellen pretty much just gave me a side glance out of her eye and didn’t even say ‘hello,’ or ‘thank you for protecting my mother, my wife, and me. It was very cold and it was very sly and it was actually kind of demeaning in the way that she treats people other than those who are in her circle."

Majercak also gave the lowdown on the high-profile afterparty...

via: Twitter

Explaining that other celebrities had to be approved before going to talk to DeGeneres at her table. Madness.

People just won't take her phony attitude any longer...

via: Twitter

“It’s bugged me for years," Majercak said. “I see this person come across as being very enlightened and positive and awesome and everybody loves her and is in awe, and that’s really not the case when you meet her in person."

The latest story to be revealed is from a former producer...

via: Instagram

The Ellen Show's former associate producer has recently spoken out about their time working with Ellen, describing her as living in a "privileged bubble."

It sounds like people are finally noticing Ellen for who she really is.

"Ellen told him the iPhone should have a bigger font. That’s her. It’s not that she’s some demon. She just lives in an incredibly privileged bubble and is out of touch with the real world."

It's not just her producer that thinks Ellen is living in a "privileged bubble," people on Twitter have been sharing their views, and they aren't holding back...

With some suggesting, this isn't the start of the rumours, but instead the result of years of hushed views.

Some even had experiences of their own...

Could that many people be wrong?

This Twitter user said what we're all thinking...

Maybe it's time for Ellen to do a bit of soul searching...

Some haters went too far...

She might not be the Ellen we all thought, but that is unnecessary.

People everywhere are commenting about how fake she appears to be.

Clearly a lot of people agree with this guy...

I guess it's only a matter of time until the truth comes out.

And the truth hurts...

But all these rumors are starting to take their toll on the star...

via: Instagram

A source has revealed that “Ellen is at the end of her rope," with all the hateful comments she's received. At first, “she thought this was all just sour grapes from a few haters. But it’s not a passing thing — the hits just keep coming."

And coming and coming...

via: Instagram

According to the insider, Ellen has been leaning on wife, Portia de Rossi, and close friends for support while she tries to make sense of it all.

She doesn't understand why people are targeting her...

A second source has said: “Ellen’s so grateful to have Portia in her life as a soulmate and a sounding board, but that doesn’t mean it’s been easy, their home life is strained right now… Her real friends never ask her to be funny or tell jokes. They accept her as is."

You'd expect her show to be hit hard by all the backlash, but miraculously, her ratings continue to soar...

“Ellen’s been in our homes for so long, it’ll take a lot more than a bodyguard and a blogger to change how people feel about her, her best response is just being happy Ellen on the show every day," the second insider continued.
