Why So Many People Think Ellen Is A Bad Person

3 hours ago There’s been a lot of talk recently about Ellen DeGeneres being less than nice as a person. Some people have even gone so far as to call her a bad person. Their argument has some good points. Ellen's Mean Games The Ellen DeGeneres Show is a wildly popular daytime talk show, in large part due to DeGeneres’ zany antics. There are those, however, who don’t view her pranks and jokes on the show as harmless fun. The comedian’s habit of frightening people for a laugh and forcing audience members into embarrassing or uncomfortable situations as a joke doesn’t sit well with these people. They believe that there’s something mean about scaring people, even if it was an attempt at humor. There was one segment on the show that caused concern for many. A few years back, Ellen DeGeneres featured a hidden camera segment on her show. The set up was, there was a table full of free swag for The Ellen DeGeneres Show, but there were also hidden cameras to make sure the audience members only took one each. When one audience member took more than her fair share, DeGeneres shamed her and made her sit in “Ellen Jail,” a small jail cell that had been constructed for the set. DeGeneres’ detractors claim this is evidence of the talk show host’s mean nature. "Clashes" With Celebrities DeGeneres has also had some uncomfortable moments with her celebrity guests. Taylor Swift was a guest on DeGeneres’ talk show in 2012. Before that, she’d made multiple appearances every year since 2008, and had even sang a song about the experiences she’d had, but after this appearance didn’t return to the show until 2014. During the 2012 interview, DeGeneres poked fun at Swift about the pop star’s multiple boyfriends over the years. Then she suggested they play a game where every time a guy Swift had dated in the past showed up on screen, they’d ring a bell. Swift said several times that she didn’t want to play the game and even told DeGeneres multiple times to “Stop it,” while appearing to be on the verge of tears. Ellen DeGeneres laughed at this, but there are those who didn’t take this as a laughing matter. It’s unclear if Swift was joking with DeGeneres or sincerely upset about the jokes made by the talk show host, but there are people who find it unfunny and cruel. The Mariah Carey Incident Some people also claim that DeGeneres has a problem with wanting to out pregnant celebrities on her show. In 2008, the talk show host welcomed Mariah Carey onto her show and since the pop diva had recently married her now ex-husband Nick Cannon, the hot rumor at the time was that Carey was pregnant. After straight up asking Carey if she was expecting, DeGeneres employed a crafty trick to get Carey to admit that she was pregnant. She offered Carey a glass of champagne, which the songstress refused to even sip. In 2010, when Carey and her then-husband Cannon announced the news that they were expecting, they also revealed that they’d suffered a miscarriage. The rumors of a pregnancy turned out to be true, but Carey had a miscarriage and lost the baby. She listed media nosiness as a reason why she was so hesitant to share too many details about this current pregnancy. Her detractors took this as proof that DeGeneres’ pushy behavior was part of the reason Carey’s first pregnancy was such a traumatic, tragic experience. Despite those claims, Carey did return to The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2010, where DeGeneres prepared a similar “trap” for her to celebrate the announcement of her pregnancy. Viral Rumors And Staff Complaints Then there was the now infamous viral thread that made the rounds on Twitter that called for people to share true stories about mean things DeGeneres has done. While some of the stories were obviously fabricated, and many others were the sort that could never be verified, several accounts were from people using their real names and faces. Usually when people lie, they try not to expose their identity. Though it’s almost a given that there were more false stories than true ones, there’s a chance that some of the less than flattering stories about DeGeneres are true. Many of the stories in the Twitter thread centered on how DeGeneres treated her staff. Though those rumors aren’t worth repeating since there’s no proof attached to them to verify that they’re the real deal, there have been some r

Why So Many People Think Ellen Is A Bad Person

There’s been a lot of talk recently about Ellen DeGeneres being less than nice as a person. Some people have even gone so far as to call her a bad person. Their argument has some good points.

Ellen's Mean Games

is a wildly popular daytime talk show, in large part due to DeGeneres’ zany antics. There are those, however, who don’t view her pranks and jokes on the show as harmless fun. The comedian’s habit of frightening people for a laugh and forcing audience members into embarrassing or uncomfortable situations as a joke doesn’t sit well with these people. They believe that there’s something mean about scaring people, even if it was an attempt at humor.

There was one segment on the show that caused concern for many. A few years back, Ellen DeGeneres featured a hidden camera segment on her show. The set up was, there was a table full of free swag for The Ellen DeGeneres Show, but there were also hidden cameras to make sure the audience members only took one each. When one audience member took more than her fair share, DeGeneres shamed her and made her sit in “Ellen Jail,” a small jail cell that had been constructed for the set. DeGeneres’ detractors claim this is evidence of the talk show host’s mean nature.

"Clashes" With Celebrities

DeGeneres has also had some uncomfortable moments with her celebrity guests. Taylor Swift was a guest on DeGeneres’ talk show in 2012. Before that, she’d made multiple appearances every year since 2008, and had even sang a song about the experiences she’d had, but after this appearance didn’t return to the show until 2014.

Some people also claim that DeGeneres has a problem with wanting to out pregnant celebrities on her show. In 2008, the talk show host welcomed Mariah Carey onto her show and since the pop diva had recently married her now ex-husband Nick Cannon, the hot rumor at the time was that Carey was pregnant.

Viral Rumors And Staff Complaints

Then there was the now infamous viral thread that made the rounds on Twitter that called for people to share true stories about mean things DeGeneres has done. While some of the stories were obviously fabricated, and many others were the sort that could never be verified, several accounts were from people using their real names and faces. Usually when people lie, they try not to expose their identity. Though it’s almost a given that there were more false stories than true ones, there’s a chance that some of the less than flattering stories about DeGeneres are true.

Many of the stories in the Twitter thread centered on how DeGeneres treated her staff. Though those rumors aren’t worth repeating since there’s no proof attached to them to verify that they’re the real deal, there have been some recent developments that haters of Ellen DeGeneres use to prove her cold, calculating nature. After the coronavirus pandemic shut down production of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, much of the crew found themselves taking pay cuts.

Even more startling for these union workers, they discovered that DeGeneres had resumed filming her daytime talk show using a non-union, outside crew. The workers felt betrayed by the lack of clear communication surrounding their pay as well as the feeling that they were being replaced.

Hanging With George W. Bush

Of course, there are also those who take offense at DeGeneres over her politics. Though the talk show host doesn’t publicly discuss her political leanings often, it’s been surmised that she is liberal. While some people dislike DeGeneres for her left-wing politics, others don’t like her because she still hangs out with right-wing figures, like former president George W. Bush.

After photos emerged of DeGeneres and Bush sitting together at a Dallas Cowboys football game, many people thought she’d betrayed her politics by associating with the controversial political figure. DeGeneres had a heartfelt monologue on her show defending the friendship she shared with the former Republican president.

While it’s true that DeGeneres has had some awkward moments with both guests and audience members, it’s important to remember that it’s all in the name of entertainment and fun, for the most part. DeGeneres probably isn’t playing jokes on her audience and guests, or asking tough questions, out of spite or malice. She’s an entertainer and this is what entertainers do.

Though it’s definitely possible that some of the rude encounters people claimed to have via that Twitter thread are true, so are countless other stories about DeGeneres’ warmth and kindness. Is Ellen DeGeneres the nicest person in the world, or even in the entertainment industry? Probably not. But she’s also probably not the meanest woman in Hollywood, or whatever ridiculous title people try to push on her. A fair critique is a fair critique, but it seems like some people just want to just want to sow division and ill-will.

Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Are 'Neighbors From Hell'?

1 hour ago Are Meghan Markle and Prince Harry the “neighbors from hell” in their new LA community? That’s what one spiteful tabloid cover is saying this week. Gossip Cop can set the record straight. According to the cover of the latest Star, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are the “worst neighbors ever” in the gated Los Angeles community that they‘ve been living in. “People pay millions to live there because it’s beautiful, private and peaceful,” a so-called “insider” asserts. “But with Harry and Meghan around, it’s become total chaos.” That “chaos” is supposedly due to paparazzi who have come to snap photos of the couple, helicopters flying over head to get aerial shots, and tourists and fans swarming the neighborhood. The tabloid adds that Markle and Prince Harry have been “downright cold” to neighbors, on top of creating a nuisance. “They keep to themselves and aren’t the slightest bit friendly,” says a supposed neighbor. “When they take their dogs for a walk, they don’t make eye contact with anyone.” While the tabloid’s cover photo claims the couple are “closing down stores to shop,” the article itself walks this statement back by just saying that “locals predict they’ll ask stores to shut” so they can shop uninterrupted. First, Gossip Cop should point out the hypocrisy of this tabloid for suggesting Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are in the wrong because of the nuisance caused by gawking photographers. It undoubtedly is a huge pain for the couple – they’ve been plagued by a [barrage of drones combing their house for photos](https://www.thedailybeast.com/prince-harry-and-meghan-markle-report-multiple-drone-flybys-to-lapd-will-now-pay-for-own-security?ref=scroll) – but who’s buying those paparazzi photos? Tabloids. It’s not Markle and Prince Harry’s fault that publications like this one constantly invade their privacy. And once again this attempt to characterize the Sussexes, particularly Markle, as “divas” is straight nonsense. The worst thing the tabloid suggests they do is that bit about “closing down stores to shop,” but it can’t even confirm that they’re doing that. It’s just pure speculation. The rest of the article’s unsubstantiated complaints are about the Duke and Duchess not making small talk with their neighbors. It’s odd to complain about two people “keeping to themselves” in a gated neighborhood that people move to specifically for its privacy, especially during the coronavirus pandemic when socializing outside of the home is generally considered a public health risk. It seems as though Meghan Markle and Prince Harry can never do anything right. So if for whatever reason you still need proof that they’re not actually that bad, here’s a report about how they helped deliver food to LA residents in need for the non-profit Project Angel Food, a sign that they are indeed trying to give back to their new community. It’s obvious that the tabloid would rather make up insulting lies about the Duke and Duchess than publish anything factual about them. Last Christmas, the magazine tried to claim that the Queen had kicked them out of the royal family because they didn’t spend Christmas with them. As Gossip Cop pointed out, though, Prince Harry and Meghan had spent the last two Christmases with the royals and were taking this one to be with Markle’s family. Prince William and Kate Middleton, who never suffer the level of media abuse as the Sussexes, frequently do the same thing. Star’s affiliate publications haven’t had anything factual say about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry either. Last month, the tabloid’s sister outlet, Life & Style, wrote that the Duke and Duchess were “broke and practically homeless” upon arriving in Los Angeles. Gossip Cop pointed to the many resources Markle and Prince Harry have at their disposal outside of the royal funds paid for with taxpayer money. The Sussexes still haven’t bought a home, but rest assured they’re not living on the street. Our Verdict Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
