At this stage we guess it’s safe to assume ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ may never return again! From employees to guests, everyone’s hating on 62-year-old host Ellen DeGeneres, and that includes ‘Back to the Future’ star Lea Thompson!
Last week, ‘Christopher Robin’ actor Brad Garrett who had been on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ six times, wrote on Twitter that he “knows more than one (employee) who were treated horribly,” by the host. He added that the mean behavior on-set was “common knowledge.”
‘Back to the Future’ actress Lea Thompson replied to that sentiment, writing: “True story. It is.” Employees have claimed that they were not allowed to speak to Ellen directly if they saw her around set, and another employee – a black woman – says that she suffered many “microaggressions” and even had a request for a raise ignored…Let us know: DO YOU HATE ELLEN??
