Ellen DeGenereshas always implored her viewers to “be kind,” But apparently, the world’s richest comedian doesn’t practice what she preaches. One of Ellen’s former staff members backs up a few recent reports to the “New York Post,” saying the stories about Ellen being not-so-nice are “all true.”
Over the past few weeks, Ellen has been taking a ton of heat –criticizedfor comparing lockdown in her Santa Barbara mansion to “being in jail,” accused ofcutting her talk show’sunion crew amid coronavirus,a Twitter threadcalling her “one of the meanest people alive.” Most recently, her former security guardTom Majercakspoke up last week toback up the claimsby recalling how “cold” and “demeaning” she acts towards anyone who’s not “in her circle.”

But those “in her circle?” She’s not “vindictive,” she’s just Ellen. “I think people want to believe the Ellen you see on TV is the whole Ellen or real Ellen,” says former staff writerSteven Mazan.“Nobody is that uncomplicated.”
