In the middle of 2020 Ellen Degeneres got cancelled- both as a celebrity and as a TV host-for being “one of the meanest people alive.” Ellen set up a camera in Jennifer Aniston’s dressing room and made her look silly. One of Carrie Poppy’s friends said that Ellen came to dine in and when she saw her nails were chipped she tried to call management to get her fired. Most of the pranks on Ellen wouldn’t be funny unless there was an audience.
So many people get cancelled for the smallest things. The term cancelled refers
to a celebrity losing support and followers. Most people get cancelled for racist comments posted on their Instagram. When interviewed, former employees said that they had GoFundMe’s up to help with health insurance, but when Ellen found out she told them to delete the accounts because they get health insurance with the job. Ellen even protested and deleted her tweet about George Floyd’s death. “Like so many of you, I am angry and I am sad.” “People of color in this country have faced injustice for far too long.” She also participated in “blackface” in 2020, and her fans did not take it very well. The people she works with say that they have to “walk on eggshells” whenever they are around her.
Ellen’s fans said that she is “different behind the scenes.” When she heard that she took matters into her own hands and had camera’s set up around her house all day and pretty much vlogged her day.
When everything got way out of hand Ellen’s Talk Show actually got shut down because the network decided to pull the plug on it.
After everything that has happened this year with Ellen, it is safe to say that this was not her year. Ellen’s show has a 3.3 rating in stars, and she does everything she can just so the fans can have a good experience but some things are much different than they seem.
