There was once a time when Ellen DeGeneres’ brand seemed like the only reliable one out there—after all, how could you go wrong with “be kind” as your motto and huge charity giveaways as your signature move?
Unfortunately, her lofty position as “one of the good ones” has only made her fall harder, as numerous claims have come out by current and former employees of ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ revealing that the star and her eponymous show are not nearly as nice as they seem.
Allegations of racism, bullying, sexual harassment, and assault behind the scenes of the hit daytime show are drawing a critical eye to the star, who has been trying (and failing) to distance herself from the issue. What’s more, many claim that while DeGeneres loves giving away money when the cameras are on, she can’t manage to give enough money to the people behind them.
Where did all these claims of hypocrisy start, and what are the host and all her celebrity friends doing about it? Click through to find out who's been fired, what the host had to say to her staff, and all the latest info about Ellen DeGeneres’ fall from grace.
