Ellen DeGeneres has been in hot water for the past months due to the various testimonies from her staff and guests claiming that she’s mean. The host is, reportedly, already struggling with the rumors.
Ellen DeGeneres is a picture of kindness whenever she appears on TV. In fact, The Ellen DeGeneres Show host has been promoting kindness, but she is reportedly very different off-camera.
Ellen DeGeneres called the ‘Queen of Mean’
Kate Prince, an established lifestyle and entertainment writer, called Ellen DeGeneres the "Queen of Mean." She came up with the moniker due to the many complaints against the host.
In March, Kevin T. Porter posted about kindness on Twitter. He reminded the people that "we all need a little kindness" like what DeGeneres always talks about.
"She's also notoriously one of the meanest people alive."
He, then, encouraged others to share the most insane stories they heard about DeGeneres being mean and promised to match each story with a $2 donation to LA Food Bank.
Right now we all need a little kindness. You know, like Ellen Degeneres always talks about!
She's also notoriously one of the meanest people alive

Talk show host struggles with mean comments
According to American blogger Perez Hilton, he has spoken to enough people to know that the claims are not rumors. He also learned that Ellen DeGeneres is struggling with the various reports about her "mean reputation."
A source told Us Weekly that Portia de Rossi's wife couldn't handle the backlash well. She thought it would soon be over, but the criticisms keep coming her way.
"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 source said.
Hilton added that the people aren't buying DeGeneres' nice act anymore. Aside from the bad stories about the comedienne on the viral Twitter thread, several came forward and shared their not-so-nice experience with the show
YouTube star Nikkie Tutorials called Ellen DeGeneres "cold and distant." After her appearance on the show, she realized that she should not meet her "idol."
Many also noticed how DeGeneres almost made Taylor Swift cry when the latter guested on her show.
