Ellen DeGeneres has been embroiled in her fair share of controversy these past few months as more and more shocking tales of her true personality continue to emerge.

But, during this ongoing pandemic, the TV host has reportedly left several members of her staff to struggle financially, and people are not impressed.

Keep scrolling to read more about the ongoing Ellen DeGeneres scandal, and to hear about what the public want to do about it and who they have in mind to replace her...

Her staff have been left to struggle with unnecessary pay cuts and, consequently, an uncertain future.

Sadly, this is one of the many controversial stories surrounding the infamous TV host...

For years now, rumors about Ellen DeGeneres' true personality have been rife... And let me tell you, they aren't pretty.

Because, though Ellen appears to have a warm and bubbly demeanor while on-screen...

Her off-screen character is apparently a little less favorable.

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.

Ellen loves nothing more than to befriend the rich and the powerful...

Which, in itself, should be a hint at her true personality and values.

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.

Exposing the rich and the famous will never get old...

And this has certainly been no exception.

Twitter user, Kevin T. Porter, took to the social media platform with the task to expose the famous Ellen 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...

Ellen clearly doesn't care too much for writers 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?

Her veganism has certainly ruffled a few feathers in the past.

Now this one won't surprise anyone. 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.

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 he 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."

She has a "sensitive nose".

And this highly sensitive nose apparently means that people working around her have to take extra care with their smell... Including chewing gum from a bowl outside her office before speaking to her. Some members of staff have even been asked to go home and shower. Now that's just rude.

Staff members are reportedly encouraged to cheer her 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.

And 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.

And she reportedly refused to pay tribute to Joan Rivers...

All because Joan's comedy was "the wrong kind".

Okay, so the credibility behind these stories is a little questionable...

And there were hundreds of them. But why would so many people come out to make up stories about one person? Food for thought.

Yet, despite all the bad press, she has been continuing her daily talk show from the comfort of her own home... Which has ruffled a few feathers.

via: Youtube

Her crew were reportedly "furious" due to the lack of communication regarding their pay. And the main stage crew, comprised of roughly thirty people, were kept in the dark about issues like pay and working hours for over a month.

But that's not even the half of it...

via: Youtube

The crew found out that she hired an alternative tech company to help her broadcast daily from her home in California, meaning original crew members with the same skill set were out of work. Talk about a stab in the back.

And, what the producers revealed after a month of silence, was simply shocking.

Last week, crew members found out that they should expect a whopping sixty percent pay decrease, even while the show continues airing. Laughably, a spokesperson for the show said: "Our executive producers and Telepictures are committed to taking care of our staff and crew and have made decisions first and foremost with them in mind."

Crew members revealed that the most upsetting part was the "lack of personal outreach" during this already distressing time.

via: Twitter

On top of all that, these employees found out that crew members from similar shows were being paid and treated far more fairly. Jimmy Kimmel has even been paying his crew out of his own pocket, while other shows such as TNT's Full Frontal, Last Week Tonight, and Desus and Mero were all being paid in full.

Understandably, people are outraged.

And many have been taking to Twitter to call out the host for her disgusting behavior.

Many have pointed out her blatant hypocrisy...

Only start telling us to be nice when you learn how to be nice yourself, Ellen.

People are done with her antics...

Ellen, cancel culture is coming for you.

And the public have decided to take action against the host.

With a very popular online petition to replace Degeneres with another famous Ellen.

"ellen page is a much better ellen to host the ellen show."

"ellen degeneres is a hetero that just happens to be gay. ellen page is a much better host because she's way more gay."
Amazing scenes.
