Hollywood Is Distancing Themselves From Ellen DeGeneres
And now a lot of her fans and critics can’t help but wonder the same thing: where are all of her Hollywood friends and why aren’t they sticking up for her? Even though she has been surrounded by A-listers like Jennifer Aniston, Sofia Vergara, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts and more for years, none of them have been quick to come to her aid.
A source told The Sun: “Ellen has gained a reputation as a friend to the stars, but A-listers would have to take great risks to publicly defend the show.”
“The explosion of the #MeToo movement has really shone a light on workplace conduct in Holly- wood. Studios are under pressure to change the culture,” the source said.
This comes after a comedian took to his Twitter account to brand the talk show host as one of the meanest people alive. Many people who have worked for her in the past then began sharing their stories about her. Some responses included an allegations from TV writer Benjamin Siemon, who said, “she has a ‘sensitive nose’, so everyone must chew gum from a bowl outside her office before talking to her, and if she thinks you smell you have to go home and shower.”
