But now the producers have responded to those rumors in a shocking statement...
For years now, rumors about Ellen DeGeneres' true personality have been rife.
via: Getty ImagesThough 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.

Evidently, people who know the host have been growing tired of her flawless persona...

Her past employees certainly haven't held back.

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."
Staff members are reportedly encouraged to cheer her up when she's in a bad mood.

And, more recently...
@TheEllenShow Don’t get cancelled for being stupid. This is about Black people. You’re smarter than this— the 10th letter Ω (@the 10th letter Ω)1590951007.0
Like most other celebrities, Ellen tweeted about the ongoing racism in this country, where she demonstrated her support to the Black Lives Matter movement.But, in doing so, she sparked a whole lot of outrage.
Here's what she wrote.
via: TwitterIn a tweet that has since been deleted, Ellen said: "Like so many of you, I am angry and I am sad. People of color in this country have faced injustice for far too long. For things to change, things must change. We must commit ourselves to this change with conviction and with love."
Many people found Ellen's use of the phrase "people of color" rather problematic...

But, following on from the backlash, Ellen decided to change her tune.

She even addressed the issue in an IG TV video.
However, her video failed to save her already crumbling reputation...And now, 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...
Her ratings are continuing to decline...

But now the producers have spoken out, addressing the rumors in a statement.

They explicitly said this:

So maybe there is some hope for the show after all...
via: Getty ImagesBut right now, it's not looking too good.
The news comes after it was reported that Ellen is actually under house arrest for her involvement in a different scandal.
Remember when Ellen DeGeneres said that being stuck in a $27 million mansion during Covid-19 is “like being in Jail… https://t.co/E8kPwRlr5t— themagiciancard (@themagiciancard)1593449615.0
