Ellen has been the subject of torment since the first allegation came out about her being the very opposite of the image she tries to portray on screen.
But after so much abuse, and with more and more people speaking out about the host, it seems she has finally reached breaking point.
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."
via: InstagramHowever, 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...
via: GettyHer off-screen character is apparently a little less favorable.
Various stories that detail Ellen's true character have circulated online for years.
via: GettyThough 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.

And, in recent years, Ellen's image has been questioned more and more.
via: GettyCracks 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...
via: GettyAnd, 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.
Right now we all need a little kindness. You know, like Ellen Degeneres always talks about! 😊❤️ She’s also notori… https://t.co/vlJ6NIBOJq— Kevin T. Porter (@Kevin T. Porter)1584724324.0
The way she treats her staff is crazy...
@KevinTPorter @LAFoodBank My friend wrote for the Ellen Show for two years and told me Ellen didn’t greet her once.… https://t.co/rOK2u9C3mr— Cathy Messier (@Cathy Messier)1584724649.0
Staff weren't even allowed in the same room as her.

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

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...
Nikkie went on to speak about how she was forbidden from using the nearest bathroom backstage...
via: YoutubeIt 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 have been literally hundreds of people speaking out against the star...
via: GettyBut 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.
via: YoutubeHer 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...
via: TwitterEllen'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.
via: TwitterMajercak 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: TwitterExplaining 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: InstagramThe 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.
But all these rumors are starting to take their toll on the star...
via: InstagramA 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: InstagramAccording 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...
via: InstagramA 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."
