Amid the current investigation into The Ellen Show, a recent resurfaced video shows Ellen making some very telling comments about her staff...
Where do we even begin with the whole Ellen DeGeneres scandal?The 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.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.

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.
And, this year, things have reached a breaking point.Now, 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.For example...
Ellen clearly doesn't care too much for writer's strikes.
This Twitter user came forward with the story about Ellen's head writer, Karen Kilgariff. Karen was under Ellen's employment for 5 years until she took part in a writer's strike. Boom. Fired. And a word was never exchanged between the pair again.

More scandal regarding her treatment of staff...
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?
@KevinTPorter @LAFoodBank Some friends who work /worked on her show said many of her staff members weren't allowed… https://t.co/ujfdvB1t7A— MKB (@MKB)1584724529.0
Her veganism has also ruffled a few feathers in the past.
For a colleague's birthday, Twitter user Alison Freer was celebrating with a BBQ outside of the Warner Bros studios where The Ellen Show is filmed. However, Ellen was quick to shut down all the festivities by sending someone over to put a stop to the celebration, all because she doesn't eat meat. Not cool, Ellen.

Her compassion for animals strikes again.
Though it's great that she cares so much about animals, her sensitivity to the matter doesn't bode well for her employees.
@KevinTPorter @LAFoodBank D) She cares about animals which is good but so sensitive for example if someone tried to… https://t.co/xuFBexYB5j— Benjamin Siemon (@Benjamin Siemon)1584725438.0
Ellen apparently hates her own fans.
And her own show! Who'd have thought it?
@KevinTPorter @LAFoodBank Comic I know became friendly with her, said she openly expressed her deep disdain for her… https://t.co/f5hFuC9CL1— Chase Mitchell (@Chase Mitchell)1584725118.0
She also has no respect for her current staff.In 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...The Ellen Show had its season-low rating of around 1.5.
Her ratings are continuing to decline...
So much so that, at one point in time, fans were convinced that the worst had happened, but the producers ended up confirming that the show is not going to be axed... Yet.
While we’re here... fuck Ellen Degeneres.— HeyBun’s Alt (@HeyBun’s Alt)1591286149.0
