I am not really that familiar with Ellen DeGeneres. I stopped watching television during the mid-’90s, and I didn’t even watch her sitcom that she seemed to copy from Seinfeld at that time. But I do recall seeing her stand-up routine on TV during those years, and thought she was very funny.
And apparently she’s had a TV talk show for the past 17 years, and now that show’s fate is in question. Apparently, starting in April people from behind the scenes from her TV show are coming out of the wordwork to accuse Ellen of presiding over a work environment of “racism, fear, and intimidation.”
Writes the New Yorker:
Former employees claimed that they were fired for going on medical leave or for taking bereavement days to attend a funeral. A Black woman said that a producer had told her and a Black co-worker, “Oh, wow, you both have box braids; I hope we don’t get you confused.”
And then we hear allegations by former employees of sexual misconduct and groping by producers there.
Hmmm. I’ll bet such behavior goes on a lot in show business. So I believe that these kinds of complaints could be thrown toward ANY show-biz performer on TV or in the movies. So why Ellen?
My theory is the complaints going on now are a coordinated effort to “punish” Ellen for her defense last year of Kevin Hart’s (who I hadn’t even heard of until this controversy) “homophobic” tweets that were dug up by “investigative” “journalists” who really care about digging up the truth about people when it really matters. Hart was scheduled to host the Oscars but was ousted following what was apparently seen as an insincere apology for those “homophobic” tweets.
The Twitter Mob also didn’t like Ellen’s remark that self-quarantine during the scamdemic was “like being in jail.” So, she told the truth about house arrest, but the True Believers in the COVID scam (which are mainly left-leaning sheeple and Democrats) couldn’t have that truth-telling.
So, as we are seeing with the liberal, openly lesbian Ellen DeGeneres (not exactly a right-winger), the leftist “social justice” mob will go after ANYONE who strays. Making remarks toward “special,” extra-protected groups like LGBT is so forbidden, such a NO-NO, that even Ellen crossed the line in her defending Hart. And she strayed slightly from the required obedience to the COVID narrative. Now she vill be punished!
