Ellen DeGeneres wanted to give her mom, Betty, a special to celebrate her 90th birthday, but it ended up just causing more controversy for the talk show host. She shared a one-minute clip on Twitter showing her taking trimmers to her mother's hair. When she done, what's left is an extremely short haircut that her mom doesn't seem too thrilled with at first.

Related to what you're reading:


At one point in the video, DeGeneres is heard assuring her mother that "it's not that short" and that "it's just taking the edges off." Betty chimes in, asking, "why am I letting her do this?" When she asks why her daughter isn't using scissors, DeGeneres tells her, "believe me, you don't want me using scissors." By the end of the video, Betty is left with much shorter hair, which she doesn't seem to be a fan of. As she checks out her birthday 'do in the mirror, she tells her daughter that she doesn't like it "yet," adding that she "really cut it short."


Some people were genuinely upset about the video.

"Bad haircut for your mom. She looked lovely before your birthday 'gift. Hope she can do something with the little hair you left her. Not funny," one person said.

"Weird AF borderline elderly abuse," another wrote.

"Thank goodness your mom's got the face to carry this look, she is beautiful," a third added.

Many people, however, thought the video was cute and took time to wish Betty a very happy 90th birthday.

DeGeneres has been on the receiving end of negative press after reports began circulating that she's not a very kind person to her staff. US Weekly reports that it has taken a toll on her.

“Ellen is at the end of her rope. She thought this was all just sour grapes from a few haters. But it’s not a passing thing — the hits just keep coming.”

The outlet reports Ellen has been leaning on her wife, Portia de Rossi, amid ex-employees calling her out for being a rude diva.

The source added, “Ellen’s so grateful to have Portia in her life as a soulmate and a sounding board, but that doesn’t mean it’s been easy. Their home life is strained right now. … Her real friends never ask her to be funny or tell jokes. They accept her as is.”

The crew of her talk show were reportedly upset about being left in the dark over taking a paycut during the coronavirus pandemic.
