Just when we thought all of the celebrities had learned their lessons from the misguided actions of Evangeline Lilly, Bobby Flay, Pharrell, and Vanessa Hudgens, along comes Ellen Degeneres who tells everyone within earshot, “Hold my beer.”

Degeneres, allegedly “one of the meanest people alive,” according to several ex-employees, decided that this week she would do a little mini-show from her home with her wife Portia de Rossi.

Reasonable enough.

She began this at-home edition of her show by saying, “I wanted to start doing my new show as soon as possible because it’s really for people who are stuck at home, and especially my staff and crew. I love them, I miss them, and the best thing I can do to support them is to keep the show on the air. So here we are.”

Solid start. Ellen seems very genuine… then the wheels come off.

“Portia and I have been quarantining for three weeks now. … One thing that I’ve learned from being in quarantine is that people… this is like being in jail, is what it is,” Ellen said, trying to be funny. “It’s mostly because I’ve been wearing the same clothes for 10 days and everyone in here is gay.”

Good one.

Oh, that’s right. She deleted the video. Yeah, that’ll fix it.

Anyway, considering everyone else has been stuck “in jail” (but most people not in a mansion), folks are a little testy and made their disapproval of Ellen’s attempt at humor very well known on social media.

Charlamagne Tha God even honoroed Ellen Degeneres with the prestigious title of “Donkey Of The Day” following her little joke.

“Very important note,” Charlamagne said Wednesday morning. “Ellen lives in a mansion that’s over eight thousand square feet, sits on 8.24 acres of land, it has five bedrooms, a cabana that doubles as a gym, a two-bedroom guest house, and a salt-pebble infinity pool that overlooks the ocean. And it cost her twenty-seven million to buy. I’m not mad at her! She has a skillset and a talent that has enabled her to live like that and secure the bag. I’m not one of those people who knock people for their accomplishments.”

He continued, “I’m giving Ellen Degeneres Donkey Of The Day cause Ellen Degeneres insisted that her mansion is like a prison. In light of what’s going on in prisons and jails around the country in this global pandemic called COVID-19, Ellen Degeneres sounds tone-deaf as hell.”
