Ellen DeGeneres has been in the news For all the wrong reasons lately. Everything started when Some of the employees filed a complaint against the producers of the show as the toxic work environment was a huge concern for many!
Different stories are coming from different corners, some supporting Ellen while others backlashing the host. Today we get to hear another story from an audience member.
According to reports in The Sun, an audience member told that Ellen DeGeneres, would become “moody” on set during advertisement breaks, often, she said, breaking away from her bubbly personable self to sitting in silence on her couch. Ignoring everyone.
Moreover, the audience member claimed that Ellen DeGeneres was told by staff that she can’t be “funnier or smarter” than DeGeneres, and she was “humiliated” after she was made to “scream and jump” backstage.
That audience member was chosen to play the game Make It Rain, which sees contestants getting soaked in water while attempting to win a cash prize. After playing in the game, that audience member described how she was “soaking wet” but staffers hurried her backstage.
“Then they just left us there. We waited pretty much the whole show in our soaking wet clothes for someone to bring us dry things to change into. It was really cold and uncomfortable.”
“I didn’t enjoy myself on the show. You have to follow all these rules, you can’t be yourself, you have to clap constantly and laugh at things that aren’t funny.”
Well…the investigation about the previously filed complaint is going on and here comes another big blow! We are eager to know what the host has to say about these claims.
Stay tuned for more.
