Ellen DeGeneres Accused Of Being ‘One Of The Meanest People Alive’ In Viral Twitter Thread Including Ex-Employees


I’m not here to declare my moral superiority over someone whose stature and responsibility I will never achieve.

If I were accountable for putting food on the table of hundreds of employees, I’d probably make everyone crawl around the office on their hands and knees and charge $20 per eye contact. Steve Harvey knows what’s up.

It’s no secret that fame breeds self-importance and self-importance gives carte blanche to treat less successful people like shit, but one would expect the woman who dances like every white woman at Home Goods and gracefully interviews children to buck the trend.

Those who deal with Ellen DeGeneres when the cameras aren’t rolling are regaling their personal tales of Ellen’s less bubbly side. The thread, which at the time of this writing has garnered 7,300 comments, was initiated by comedian Kevin Porter, who claims Ellen is “notoriously one of the meanest people alive.”

Sounds like the price of betrayal to me.

I cannot defend this behavior. Should’ve cut the nail into Ellen’s roasted squash puree.

I’ll take Money Without The Fame for $200, Alex.

“Knock Knock.”

“Who’s there.”

“The pious comic.”

“Get off my lawn before I call the police.”

No one likes an eager beaver.

Power move: Shit your pants.

If you have body odor in a professional setting and are told to go home and shower instead of losing your job, consider yourself lucky.

Wait, Ellen gives Christmas gifts? What a mensch!

If she’s paying, she’s ordering. Them the rules.

TL;DR Ellen is evil because employees don’t like the lunch she buys for them and she prefers they don’t come to work smelling like shit. Toss her in a cell and throw away the key.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
