Amid the current investigation into The Ellen Show, people are now sharing the video that "ended" Ellen DeGeneres...
Where do we even begin with the whole Ellen DeGeneres scandal?
via: GettyThe infamous host of The Ellen Show has been batting off accusation after accusation... and now, the show is reportedly under investigation following reports of "mistreatment."
For years now, rumors about Ellen's true personality have been rife.
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.

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.
And, this year, things have reached a breaking point.
via: GettyNow, more than ever before, people are starting to turn against the star as detrimental stories continue to resurface.
Her past employees certainly haven't held back.

She also has no respect for her current staff.
via: GettyIn a recent, rather 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?
Quite predictably, these allegations have hit her already crumbling reputation pretty hard...And, as a result, her ratings have taken a huge blow.
Before the allegations were made this year, Ellen’s ratings were consistently around 2.0 for her daytime slot...
But, last month...
via: GettyThe Ellen Show had its season-low rating of around 1.5.
Her ratings are continuing to decline...
While we’re here... fuck Ellen Degeneres.— HeyBun’s Alt (@HeyBun’s Alt)1591286149.0
More and more allegations continued to arise from behind the scenes...Buzzfeed News, 1 current employee, as well as 10 former ones have rallied around together to reveal their "truths" about the toxic culture behind the scenes of the show.
All the allegations were done anonymously...
via: GettyBut they revealed that it wasn't just Ellen that was the cause of the toxicity, there were also other bosses and managers that made their lives much more difficult on set.
A former employee told them that the "be kind" act was "bull****"
One black woman who was part of the backstage team said she experienced "racist comments."
via: GettyShe was employed there for a total of eighteen months and in that time, she faced microaggressions and comments that made her feel uncomfortable.
She said that one of the top writer's said this to her:
via: Getty"I'm sorry, I only know the names of the white people who work here." The employee also claimed a producer commented on her and another Black employees' hairstyles, allegedly stating: "Oh wow, you both have box braids; I hope we don’t get you confused." "Whenever I brought up an issue to my white male boss, he would bring up some random story about some random Black friend that he had and how they managed to get over stuff. He would use his Black friend as some way to say, 'I understand your struggle,' but it was all performative bullshit."
Since these allegations arose, it seems that action has been taken...reports are in that The Ellen Show is officially under investigation.
The show is being investigated for racism, mistreatment, and intimidation on set.
Amid this investigation...
via: Getty ImagesPeople are now sharing the video that officially "ended" Ellen.
In the video from last year, Ellen is interviewing actress Dakota Johnson.
via: YouTubeDuring the clip from November 27, the topic of Dakota's birthday comes up.
Ellen claimed that she hadn't been invited to Dakota's 30th birthday party the month before.
via: YouTubeAnd this was when Dakota officially declared war on the battleground of Ellen DeGeneres.
She completely clapped back to the host.
via: YouTube“Actually, no, that’s not the truth, Ellen," said the star said. “Ask everybody. Ask Jonathan, your producer."
Ellen denied this accusation...
via: YouTubeUntil finally, off-camera, someone affiliated with the show settled the score, confirming that Dakota was right.
Once Twitter got wind of the interview...
