16. 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?
In the clip, she lists her staff's newborns and gives them all a numerical number.
via: YouTubeShe began to score her e-commerce manager’s baby girl named Bo: "Well, she looks a little confused which is a very appropriate expression right now so that’s plus eight points. She doesn’t have any products from out Ellen Shop by her, so that’s minus two points."
But then she said awarded the baby with twenty points saying all the merch was sold...
via: YouTubeI guess that makes it okay then?
She continued on her rating spree.
via: YouTubeThe next baby in the line up was her executive producer Derek’s grandson, named Javi: “Derek had that same look when we told him he had to figure out how to shoot this show via Zoom. The family resemblance is plus six points. I’m mad that I can’t pinch his little fat rolls while we’re in quarantine so that’s minus two points," Ellen said.
But in true Ellen fashion, the highest score didn't go to a baby...
via: YouTubeIt went to a dog, in particular, her associate producer’s "baby" called Gambler. People just weren't on board with this idea at all.
Twitter exploded with outraged comments...This user referred to it as "disturbing."
While this user described her behavior as "mean."
@TheEllenShow This is mean. I have felt for a long time that your obsession to scare people and then laugh at them… https://t.co/KyQ1W7Jhhf— patty weinmeister (@patty weinmeister)1590494821.0
