Footage has emerged from an episode of The Ellen Show showing Ellen Degeneres brutally calling out an audience member for "stealing from the show."
Keep scrolling to check out the awkward encounter...
Unless you've been living under a rock for the last few months, you'll be more than aware of the allegations that have been surfacing against Ellen DeGeneres.The talk-show host simply can't catch a break right now.
But footage from one of Ellen's shows has resurfaced recently...And it shows the controversial star bravely calling out a member of the audience for stealing. But firstly, let's take a look at Ellen's last few turbulent months...
Although Ellen appears to have a warm and bubbly demeanor while on-screen...Her off-screen character is apparently a little less favorable thanks to recent accusations.
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...
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...
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 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. 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."
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.
