The Ellen DeGeneres Show has come to an end after more than a decade. But there are some celebrities the host still has to apologize to.
By now, you’ve either heard that Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show has ended, or you’ve been living under a rock.
While there’s no denying the show was iconic in so many ways and had some hugely impactful moments for the right reasons — during the finale episode, DeGeneres even shared that she wasn’t allowed to use the word “gay”. ‘ when the show first aired in 2003 – there was a reason DeGeneres was culturally canceled long before the actual show.
That reason was mostly to do with allegations of staff mistreatment on set, a bit to do with comparing the lockdown to prison while living in his giant mansion with a huge yard, and partly to do with celebrities. that she smeared on her show.
I only listen to about three Taylor Swift songs, but I’ll be defending this woman all day. Just like the rest of the world, DeGeneres enjoyed riding the shame train when it came to Swift and her romantic life, in a way they would never do to a man.
DeGeneres wasn’t the only person to speculate, but her insistence on a bit that makes Swift so uncomfortable it looks like she’s almost in tears is hard to watch. Leave Swift alone.
2. Nikkie Tutorials
Beauty YouTuber, NikkieTutorials, was invited to the show after she was forced to come out to her subscribers as a trans woman due to threats she was receiving to take her out without permission.
While the interview itself went well, NikkieTutorials went on to slam DeGeneres for the terrible treatment she received backstage.
She described the host as ‘aloof and cold’ while speaking with a Dutch publication &VS.
She went on to say that instead of a warm welcome, she was “only greeted by an angry intern who was a little overworked”, and that she was “not allowed to use the nearest toilets, as they were reserved for the Jonas Brothers”. Instead, making it clear how much she was appreciated as a guest, she was sent to the public restroom.
3. Mariah Carey
Carey appeared on the show in 2008, and DeGeneres used the interview to pressure her into announcing her pregnancy.
At first, DeGeneres simply pointed out that there were pregnancy rumors, but when Carey replied “don’t discuss it”, DeGeneres tried to force Carey to come out with a toast to not being pregnant with champagne. .
The whole thing is very cringe-worthy, and the fact that Carey had a miscarriage shortly after the interview is just another example of why it’s never okay to comment on the body. of a woman during pregnancy.
After workplace toxicity claims were published, Carey said in an interview with Vulture that “I was extremely uncomfortable with that moment is all I can say. And I really struggled to deal with the consequences.
This clip went viral as people praised Dakota Johnson for standing up for herself when DeGeneres tried to portray her as the on-air villain.
In fact, this clip basically started the spiral of people sharing their claims of a toxic work culture, so Johnson really paved the way for less famous people to speak out.
As someone with a name that literally no one can pronounce, I totally understand that some names you’ve never met before can be hard to say – so you ask for the correction, you correct your mistake and everyone move on (ideally).
However, when you’re the host of one of America’s biggest talk shows, learning to say the names of your guests is pretty important—if not for professionalism, then at least for respect.
Not only did comedian and political commentator Hasan Minhaj have to teach DeGeneres to pronounce her name correctly during her interview, but she continued to pronounce it mockingly on multiple occasions.
Minhaj was a total champ at this; laughing, wondering out loud why people could learn complicated names of white celebrities (side note: it’s racism), and even answering a question asking what he was doing at Starbucks with, “I goes through Timothée Chalamet.”
6. Lea Thompson
After staff allegations of a toxic workplace came out, Back to the future Actress Lea Thompson responded on Twitter to a post by People in which Everybody loves Raymond Actor, Brad Garrett, claimed the toxicity was “common knowledge” and he knows “more than one who have been horribly treated by it”.
Thompson never went into great detail, but her two-word response makes it pretty clear that something happened: “True story. He is”.
