DeGeneres Was Characterized As ‘Selfish’ and ‘Unfriendly’ In The Report


Majercak can reportedly “attest to the recent allegations made by others about her unfriendly and selfish demeanor.”

All of those who have accused the host of putting on her friendliness had the same story, which was that her warmth and compassion is something she saves for the camera.

The security guard stated that as part of his job he escorted DeGeneres, her mother, and her partner, Portia De Rossi through their evening, from the red carpet to the ball afterward.

The Security Guard Said DeGeneres Was Less Friendly Than Other Celebs


"I'm holding their hands and walking them through individuals and large groups of people. Ellen is the one person that I've been assigned to -- and I've been assigned to quite a few celebrities -- that has never taken the time to say hi to me," Majercak said, according to Fox News.

The security guard said that his experience was very different with the other members of the TV hosts’ party, including De Rossi, saying that she was "very pleasant and carried on a conversation."

Majercak Felt Grossly Under Appreciated By DeGeneres


"It started going negatively when she introduced me to Ellen and Ellen pretty much just gave me a side glance out of her eye and didn't even say 'hello,' or 'thank you for protecting my mother, my wife and me,'" Majercak continued.

"It was very cold and it was very sly and it was actually kind of demeaning in the way that she treats people other than those who are in her circle."

Fox News’ requested a comment from DeGeneres representative, but did not receive a comment as of publishing of their story.

DeGeneres Pre-Approved Those Who Could Approach Her


According to Majercak’s comments, he stayed close to DeGeneres at the Governor’s Ball, following the event, and while she chatted with celebrities who were near her, she only allowed those pre-approved to come to her table and speak to her.

"It's bugged me for years," Majercak said, concerning the alligations made by others about the same issues. "I see this person come across as being very enlightened and positive and awesome and everybody loves her and is in awe and that's really not the case when you meet her in person."
