The trouble for Ellen DeGeneres is refusing to slow down as she is yet again grabbing the headlines. This time it’s due to her remarks on Meghan Markle and her engagement with Prince Harry.
The incident traces down to 2017 when the celebrity host made a joke of Meghan over her appearance as a briefcase girl on Deal or No Deal. She was a holder of a briefcase number 24. Ellen had joked that Harry could’ve walked away with millions had he picked a different model.
“Holder of Case 24 which means if Harry had picked the other model, he could’ve gotten a million dollars!” Ellen DeGeneres had quoted back in 2017.
Now, as Ellen DeGeneres is surrounded by the allegations of creating a toxic workplace environment, netizens are pointing at her old joke on Meghan Markle to show how she is as a person.
Check out some Twitter reactions:
“Ellen DeGeneres is the most brutal example of how everyone throws stones at you when you go down. Every day, there is a new story about her. ..Here is the one where she makes a brutal joke aimed at Meghan Markle’s marriage to Prince Harry.”
“So?? I quit watching @TheEllenShow long ago when I saw how mean she was to her guests and laughed it off by making jokes or snide comments ~ sure she has helped people but at what cost, being a joking bully ~ Hard Pass.”
“This COVID was too brutal for Ellen.”
“I don’t think showing who someone truly is, is cancel culture. She promotes to be kind and is a mean girl. Exposing her true colours is what she deserves.”
