Ellen DeGeneres ‘mean girl’ criticisms
Earlier this year, a lot of people exposed DeGeneres for reportedly being mean, cold, and demeaning. The allegations against the talk show host resurfaced in March after comedian Kevin T. Porter posted a cryptic tweet.
Porter asked his followers and those who have negative experiences with DeGeneres to share their story on his social media account. Several people came forward back then.
Months later, DeGeneres’ former bodyguard, Tom Majercak told Fox News that the celebrity was rude because she ignored him. Her wife, on the other hand, was quite friendly towards Majercak.

“I told y’all,” the reality TV star wrote.

Immediately after, The Ellen Show executive producers Andy Lassner, Mary Connelly, and Ed Glavin apologized to the staff who didn’t have particularly positive experiences while working on the program.
“We are truly heartbroken and sorry to learn that even one person in our production family has had a negative experience. It’s not who we are and not who we strive to be, and not the mission Ellen DeGeneres has set for us,” they said.
