Ellen DeGeneres gets called out by celebrities during ‘cringe-worthy’ interviews


Ellen DeGeneres gets called out by Michelle Obama, Justin Bieber, Martha Stewart, and other celebrities during their cringe-worthy interviews on The Ellen Show.

Insider looked at some of the comedian’s controversial interviews, starting with the ex-FLOTUS. The publication claimed that Barack Obama’s wife grew visibly irritated at Ellen DeGeneres over her questionable behavior.

Michelle Obama says Ellen DeGeneres is out of control

While shopping at CVS, DeGeneres tried to sign the forehead of a sleeping infant. She also pointed a megaphone directly on the stroller.

Obama called out the comedian by saying that she’s out of control and scaring the baby. However, DeGeneres refused to stop her antics.

The Ellen Show host opened a boxed wine, and she also found an ointment for the former first lady’s fake rash.

DeGeneres also asked Obama if she could have her face printed on dollar bills, and the latter said that she couldn’t. After all, individuals who’ve done something grand for the country are the ones found on dollar bills.

“I make the world happy every day,” DeGeneres said.

“You should’ve freed some slaves. You know, you’re really annoying. It’s like taking a 3-year-old to the store,” Obama said.

The comedian teases Martha Stewart

During her interview with Stewart, DeGeneres asked Stewart if she’s ever “sexted” before and if she knows what the term means.

“I have used technology for a lot longer than you have, Ellen,” Stewart fired back.

Ellen DeGeneres questions Justin Bieber’s love life

While speaking with Bieber, Ellen DeGeneres pulled out a nude photo of the singer while asking him about his love life.

Portia de Rossi’s wife noticed that there was a woman with Bieber in the photo, so DeGeneres asked if she’s his girlfriend. Bieber said that she isn’t.

“You just brought a friend to Bora Bora? And you’re just naked with your friend?” DeGeneres asked.

Bieber fired back at DeGeneres by asking her why she’s putting him on the spot. But the two continued talking.

Portia de Rossi’s wife can’t pronounce her guest’s name correctly

Hasan Minhaj previously called out DeGeneres for mispronouncing his name on the show.

Minhaj taught DeGeneres the correct pronunciation of his name before revealing that a lot of people encouraged him to change it.

“When I first started doing comedy, people were like, ‘You should change your name.’ I’m like, ‘I’m not gonna change my name. If you can pronounce Ansel Elgort, you can pronounce Hasan Minhaj,” he said.

Several other celebrities called out Ellen DeGeneres for being mean and cold. They also met the comedian for the first time on The Ellen Show.
