I wasn’t really aware of any allegations like this. I don’t pay much attention to the news. Can someone fill me in?  I haven’t been into her lately, but Ellen is Iconic Gay Fam, so I’ll be interested in her opinion on some stuff. 

If you can't say I LOVE YOU, then say nothing at all...

Ellen’s apology:

I believe it’s one of those cases where the person is only apologizing because they got caught, not because it’s genuine. Her crocodile tears won’t be working on me.  I never liked or trusted her, w

I haven't even followed the allegations against Ellen because I had my own terrible experience as an audience member of her show once YEARS ago, and had a friend go through something very similar in spite of my warnings in 2019. I don't know who is responsible but at the end of the day it's her name.

I mean she publicly shamed a woman for doing something bad. Yes that’s wrong but to put her on the spot and reward the good doer to further embarrass the audience member. I mean it didn’t add any entertainment unless you consider laughing and pointing fingers at someone...is this the handmaiden’s tale? What’s wrong with her?

“I take full responsibility and have fired the staff responsible” 

 

“I have no one to blame but myself and will take it upon myself to fire those who are to blame”

 

”I hope those who were negatively affected by people who are not me, forgive me for not being involved whatsoever”

 

bring it on!!!

I'm gonna bite, and take the unpopular opinion here. 

YES..... Like every HUMAN BEING in the world... Ellen deserves the chance to face accusations head on and address them. 

You know, for me I live by a simple credo, and I love that Jordan mentioned it ...

ACTIONS speak LOUDER than words. 

I  look at all the good that Ellen has put out in the world, all the charitable things she's done, all the heartwarming moments she's brought us, the battles she's fought... and it infuriates me that everything about her, her soul, her fight, her platform, ****, her HUMANITY are all called into question because a few people start making accusations about behind the scenes life on the show. Let me be clear, it's never okay for a workplace to be toxic. But in a show like this, you can't expect an Ellen Degeneres to know every SINGLE person and thing happening. She's a HOST. The show has morphed far beyond a simple production. Maybe THAT's a sad excuse, and the real problem. Maybe that's what Ellen is going to address?

I just think what's most TOXIC in this world right now is the internet. People just start throwing shade, hate and slander at anyone who's personality rubs them the wrong way. We read unsubstantiated stories, and run with it like it's FACT. It's so easy to be a warrior behind a keyboard, but for all those people slamming the hell out of Ellen and 'Canceling' her in the name of justice or some ****ty feeling of triumphant superiority it gives you, I'd ask this.... what the hell have YOU done for the world? 

I'm sure there were things on set at the Ellen show that aren't right. I'm sure there are people who don't have a one on one personal relationship with Ellen. But at the end of the day, NONE of us know what goes on behind her closed doors. What matters is what we all put out in the world.

As for this moment in particular... If she's taking this seriously and taking the time to listen to her staff, and truly attempt to make it right, then I'm definitely willing to hear her out. Everyone should be willing to hear her out.... 

 

my final two cents.... it makes me sick, as someone In their mid-30's who didn't go to high school at a time when it was okay to be gay, someone who was bullied mercilessly, to see how so many in our community have become the *****y, mean girls of this new generation. That's the real tragedy I've seen in the tweets surrounding this story.

I am terribly sorry but it's a no from me. Kelly Clarkson has a great show, in addition, as far as I can tell, Ellen was cancelled. Therefore, people are going to watch the first/last/the episode in which she apologises only. :didilie: I loved her show, yet I felt there was something wrong and the wrong was brought to the light so.

It gets worse, a former housekeeper has come out. 

She has a bathroom designed for the "Help", and well it's an outhouse, Basically a permanent port a potty for the staff at her estate. 

She sets up cleaning traps like basically in Hidden areas, like base boards and under cupboards. If it's not all cleaned she will address it very mean like. She expects her house to be cleaned like a military barracks. Basically use a toothbrush and your knees if you have to..

And they have to provide their own food and have to make sure it's vegan friendly. She fired an entire staff the weekend crew cos one smelled of meat.

And She banned lady gaga from her show cos she wore the meat dress on her show. 

More stuff is coming out. 

If J.K. rowling got cancelled cos of her anti transgendered views, How come Ellen gets a pass. I guess firing a person of LGBT community could end up being a lawsuit in today's world. 

I'm the hunter, you're the fox 🦊.
