Ellen DeGeneres seems to be under the radar of everyone these days. After a few employees from The Ellen DeGeneres show filed a complaint against the show producers, regarding the toxic work environment.
Ever since we get to hear different stories, some supporting Ellen while others backlashing the host. Today we get to hear another story from an audience member. Read on to know more.
According to reports in The Sun, an audience member told that Ellen DeGeneres, would become “moody” on set during advertisement breaks, often, she said, breaking away from her bubbly personable self to sitting in silence on her couch. Ignoring everyone.
Moreover, the audience member claimed that Ellen DeGeneres was told by staff that she can’t be “funnier or smarter” than DeGeneres, and she was “humiliated” after she was made to “scream and jump” backstage.
That audience member was chosen to play the game Make It Rain, which sees contestants getting soaked in water while attempting to win a cash prize. After playing in the game, that audience member described how she was “soaking wet” but staffers hurried her backstage.
“Then they just left us there. We waited pretty much the whole show in our soaking wet clothes for someone to bring us dry things to change into. It was really cold and uncomfortable.”
“I didn’t enjoy myself on the show. You have to follow all these rules, you can’t be yourself, you have to clap constantly and laugh at things that aren’t funny.”
Now we are eagerly waiting to hear what Ellen has to say about these allegations, which we think might be true. We hope things get back to normal and the investigation gets over soon.
