“Ellen is at the end of her rope,” an insider told Us Weekly. “Is she always nice? No.” They continued: “It irritates me that people think she’s all sweetness and light and she gets away with it,” they added.
“She thought this was all just sour grapes from a few haters. But it’s not a passing thing — the hits just keep coming.”
It comes just days after a former staffer told the New York Post: “The stories are all true!”
The stories about the comedienne started circulating after comic Kevin T. Porter sent out a tweet in March urging people to message him ‘the most insane stories [they’ve] heard’ about Ellen in an effort to raise money for the Los Angeles Food Bank.
Porter was flooded with written accounts by various Twitter users who claimed to have had less than savory interactions with Ellen – who he labeled as ‘notoriously one of the meanest people alive’ – over the years.
It all started back in October when Ellen defended her friendship with George W. Bush and continued when she tried to grill Dakota Johnson about why she didn’t invite her to her 30th birthday. (Note: Dakota did invite Ellen, but many suspected Ellen was busy entertaining the former president that weekend.)
Ellen’s popularity continued to dip when she compared her mansion to a prison at the height of the pandemic, when her former bodyguard called her “dehumanizing,” when her employees grew “distressed and outraged over their treatment from top producers amid the coronavirus pandemic,” and when blogger Nikkie de Jager (aka NikkieTutorials) went on her show and then compared it to “Teletubbies after dark.”
