Ellen DeGeneres has reportedly been given a new nickname while under investigation by Warner Bros. for the alleged toxic environment on her television show set, ‘Talk Show Karen!’
According to reports, many of the staff members who have worked in the reported terrible working conditions at the ‘Ellen DeGeneres Show’ have started calling their boss, or in some cases, ex-boss, ‘Talk Show Karen.’
As you know, the term ‘Karen’ is being used to described entitled white women, who are normally involved in some sort of abusive behavior.

“Who would’ve thought that one of America’s most loved personalities would morph into America’s most famous Karen?” a production source told DailyMail. Adding, “There’s no way anyone on staff wants Karen and her band of toxic executives to return.”
As we reported, Ellen’s executive producer took to Twitter over the weekend saying the show will NOT be canceled and no one is ‘going off the air’ at this point.
A few stories have suggested that Ellen may be replaced by James Corden, but this new report suggests he is not in the running based on several factors.
For one, he has a longterm deal with CBS, and second, he is ‘notoriously rude behind the scenes.’ The company will be looking for someone who is genuinely nice and likable after the mess with Ellen.
“Ellen is Rosie 2.0. Everyone now knows that she is not what she sold herself as. She’s just mean, mean, mean,” a source told Dailymail.
Ellen’s wife, Portia De Rossi, has broken her silence on the situation by defending the talk show host. She posted a banner reading ‘I Stand By Ellen’ and captioned it, “To all our fans….we see you. Thank you for your support.”
As we reported, Portia is getting BLASTED by fans and followers on social media for ignoring the complaints of her staff members.
“You know what happened…her ego got the best of her…sadly that happens with money and fame,” one person wrote.
“This can’t be real. Have some accountability. It isn’t made up when it’s dozens of employees and years of bad stories. stop acting like she is a victim when there are real victims,” another added.
One person came out and said it this clear, “I DONT STAND WITH ELLEN!”
The situation is still under investigation, and no official word has come down about Ellen’s return to the show.
