The conspiracy theories are stemming from the allegations that Ellen DeGeneres had a toxic working environment on the set of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," which Stephen 'tWitch' Boss also worked on.

A TikToker who goes by TruthSeeker shared her theory revolving around tWitch's death, writing “Anne Heche, Twitch, and Leslie Jordan all had ties to Ellen, and all died suddenly and suspiciously (in my opinion).”

Within the video, the TikToker says, “Call me a conspiracy theorist, but you got three people close to Ellen dead.”

Many other TikTok users agreed with the theory as one commented on the video, “Agree! Twitch was the most spirited fun-loving soul, there’s no way he took his own life. He was Ellen’ed.”

Rosie O'Donnell saw the conspiracy theories online and decided to put an end to it.

Posting her own TikTok video, the comedian replied to a comment that read, “I had a weird feeling when I heard the news… like did he know something?” to which O'Donnell said, “Bullsh-t.”

“There’s no Hollywood cabal that’s out killing people. And why the hell would they? What could he possibly have seen or known at the Ellen Show?," she continued to express in the video.

O’Donnell goes on to state that the public knows DeGeneres was reportedly not nice to her staff, but that has nothing to do with tWitch's death. 

“There was no reason for Hollywood to kill this beautiful man," she said. "He was obviously suffering with mental health issues and it’s a big, big, big problem in the United States.”
