She 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.

And, reportedly, she has no respect for her current staff.
via: YouTubeIn a recent, 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?
It seems that there is no end to the Ellen-themed horror stories...And as a result, her ratings have taken a huge hit.
Before the allegations were made this year, Ellen’s ratings were consistently around 2.0 for her daytime slot...
It's a slippery slope.
The host has addressed her own behavior...
via: GettyAnd it sounds like she is determined to make a change.
In her latest Instagram video, Ellen started by addressing the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement.
via: Instagram“I stand with the protesters who are exercising their rights, and I want to be an ally fighting for change. As a white person, I don’t always know what to say – right now I think white people have to sit in our discomfort and admit that there’s a lot we don’t know about a black person’s experience."
She then admitted that, in the past, she could have done more.
via: Instagram"I have tried to use my platform to raise awareness on different issues over the years. I like to think that I’m doing my best, but I think it’s time we look at ourselves and say we have not done enough."
She's had enough of being "the dancing lady."
via: InstagramShe continued: “I want to learn how to be a better person, how to do better. I was the dancing lady for a little while, and now I want to educate my audience. I want to educate myself."
