Things have been looking very rocky for some time for Ellen DeGeneres and they only seem to be getting worse after a recent tweet concerning the Derek Chauvin trial…
The news comes just days after the former police officer was found guilty of murdering George Floyd.

Now, Ellen DeGeneres has not had a good couple of years.
The infamous host of The Ellen Show has been batting off accusation after accusation.
When your entire personality is built on being nice…
One small allegation can have things falling apart very quickly.
Which is exactly what seems to have happened!

And, since last year, things have reached a breaking point.
via: Getty Now, more than ever before, people are starting to turn against the star as detrimental stories continue to resurface.
Her past employees certainly haven’t held back.
BTS secrets of diva behavior, poor treatment of staff, and even more serious allegations have come to the surface.
How did it stay hidden for so long?!
via: Getty Well, many fans are looking back over the series and asking the very same questions.
Because, as it turns out…
Many think Ellen has always been problematic!
As these clips prove…
Getty And be warned – they make for some pretty uncomfortable viewing.
Let’s start with her treatment of Sophia Vergara…
Vergara is known for her strong Colombian accent which Ellen has always found (oddly) to be hilarious.
Ellen was seen repeatedly mocking Vergara during an episode a few years back..
Offering to teach her new words and claiming her English had gotten “better.”
She even did some extremely uncomfortable imitations of the star.
Not a good look, Ellen.
The next unfortunate Ellen moment concerns a gift…
Getty Something a fan sent to her.
It was a drawing of Ellen…
Alongside her wife, Portia de Rossi.
But instead of being grateful for the gesture? She brutally mocked it.
In fact, Ellen dedicated an entire segment on the topic…
She even went as far as calling it “Ellen Reviews Fans’ Really Bad Gifts.”
Mocking fans’ kind gestures? Not cool, Ellen.
These are just mere examples of Ellen’s behavior…

Despite issuing an apology last year, Ellen seems to have seriously damaged her show’s reputation…
Because the show has allegedly been struggling to secure advertisers, book A-list celebrities, and experienced a huge dip in ratings over last summer – which in TV talk is very bad news.
A staff member who works for The Ellen Show spoke out about what’s been happening.
Speaking to Insider, they revealed:
“We’re trying to be a content house, but we have no content. For the first time, everyone was starting to ask us, ‘If you have an idea, tell us because we will listen. If you have an idea for a celeb, even if they’re not A-list or famous, we’ll take anyone who will bring us numbers and eyeballs’.”
But the latest statistics show that the condition of the show is even worse than anyone knew.
With The Ellen Show losing more than a million subscribers all due to the scandals surrounding it.
And if you thought that was bad, things continue to get worse for the host all because of one tweet…
After the guilty verdicts were announced during Derek Chauvin’s trial, DeGeneres took to Twitter to post her thoughts.
Here’s the tweet:
