Ellen Degeneres has built a reputation of niceness based on her television show, but in recent months a run of bad press is dogging the comedian and tarnishing her public image.
Back in October, people were frustrated to see her cozying up with George W. Bush at a football game, leading many to wonder if Ellen was hopelessly out of touch. Additionally, YouTuber NikkieTutorials shared a less than stellar account of her visit to The Ellen Show.
"Call me naive, but I kind of expected to be welcomed with confetti cannons: 'Welcome to The Ellen DeGeneres Show!' But instead I was greeted by an angry intern who was a bit overworked. I was expecting a Disney show but got Teletubbies After Dark.
Every guest at Ellen's had a private toilet, but I didn't. I was not allowed to use the nearest toilet because it was reserved for the Jonas Brothers. Why do they get a private toilet? I thought. But in the end, my [interview] had 8 million views afterwards and theirs 2 million, ha!"
