Ellen DeGeneres might be facing cancellation in the near future. In fact, there’s speculation that her daytime talk show might get the axe because of low ratings. This comes after allegations have been made of her being both mean and rude to her staff membes. The Ellen DeGeneres Show reportedly fell 14 percent to a new season 17 low rating of 1.2, according to TVNewsCheck. This put the series behind Live with Kelly and Ryan, which had a 2.0, and Dr. Phil, with a 1.5.
Meanwhile, Ellen is definitely feeling the heat after several people who have once worked with her or on the set of the Ellen DeGeneres show have claimed that she is one of the rudest and meanest people in the entertainment world. So much for her ‘Queen of Nice’ reputation, right?

Because of all the accusations made against her either by her crew, people who have worked with her in the past or people who have simply were in the same room as her, Ellen tried to make her wrongs into rights. Just last month, she posted a video on her Twitter account about standing with the protesters behind the Black Live Matters movement. Unfortunately, not everyone is buying into her sincerity.
“I like to think that I’m doing my best, but I think it’s time that we have to look at ourselves and we have to say we have not done enough,” she said. “I want to learn how to be a better person, how to do better. I was the dancing lady for a little while and now I want to help educate my audience. I want to educate myself.”
Of course, it didn’t take very long for her critics to comment on her video. Many social media followers wrote comments such as, “I read about this a few days ago and ranted about how these white women all say they want to educate themselves, so I won’t go into that again. I’m sick of it, and I’m sick of Ellen. I’m sure the thing she’s most concerned about is that she’ll lose her show, won’t get paid $50 million dollars per year, and her wife will leave her.”
