The Ellen DeGeneres Show has turned into the Karen DeGeneres show. At least, that’s what staffers have been calling the disgraced talk show host behind her back. Here’s what you need to know.
According to the Daily Mail, Ellen DeGeneres has apparently been given the nickname ‘Talk Show Karen’ by her staff and the crew that works on her show behind the scenes. As many fans and social media users already know, ‘Karen’ has become a term to describe a woman who is entitled or very demanding.
Ellen DeGeneres Show Update: Ellen Dubbed The ‘Karen’ Of The Television Industry
One source close to the production team tells the site, “Who would have thought that one of America’s most loved personalities would morph into America’s most famous Karen? There’s no way anyone on staff wants Karen and her band of toxic executives to return.”
This comes after several reports have indicated that Ellen is certainly not the ‘Queen of Nice’ or at least, when it comes to the way she has treated people in the past. Two actresses have told Page Six that producers of her show have asked them to compliment Ellen on air and tell the audience what kind of big fans they are.
Others say that Ellen is the kind of person who doesn’t want anyone to speak to her unless spoken to, let alone chew gum in her presence. The show is currently being investigated for it’s “toxic work environment” following allegations made that Ellen is perhaps one of the most difficult people to work with in the entertainment industry. Here’s what you need to know.
Speaking to Fox Business in a new interview, employment attorney and investigator Angela Reddock-Wright believes that Ellen and the producers have a lot of work ahead of them if they want to work past this controversy. She said, “It’s really important for the show and WarnerMedia to take [the investigation] seriously and have full transparency because advertisers are possibly waiting to see how the public is responding.”
“They might be wondering if we need to pull out based on public outrage. Right now, it’s still not clear who allowed this to happen to the extent that it happened,” she added.
