What collapsed the Ellen DeGeneres Show?
In 2003, the Ellen DeGeneres Show came into being. Ellen received over 33 Emmy nominations and innumerable other accolades. Indeed, she earned worldwide recognition. However, in 2020, many of her employees came forward and complained of a toxic work environment. They also stated that Ellen was quite rude and distant in person. It’s shocking because such statements are just the opposite of the image of Ellen we had in our minds.
The employees also asserted that they faced intimidation, fear, and racism. An internal investigation took place. Over three executives deserted the show. Finally, Ellen ended up apologizing on several occasions. But this act of atonement failed to fix the damage that was already leading the show to cessation.
Greyson Chance chronicles his personal narrative
Greyson Chance became a trending topic for his rendition of the famous Lady Gaga song Paparazzi. Ellen DeGeneres welcomed him on the show and signed him to her label. Chance stepped forward last month to speak on how his life and schedule would change with one text from her. He declared that she became domineering and way too controlling.
Chance echoed the allegations of other employees and asserted that she was just degrading to people. He also looked back on how Ellen would come in and look at a rack, yell at stylists, and rebuke people in front of him. Chance also came forward to mention how the studio where Ellen hosted her show became a site of trauma for him. The kid, who went on to become a singer, also criticized Ellen for discussing his sexual orientation on the show.
He stated that he hadn’t spoken to her in years when he came out. In fact, he also commented that it was so messed up. Ellen was portraying in front of the public that they were so tight and so good. Anyway, after 19 seasons and over almost 3000 episodes, the show faced annulment. Chance also expressed his gratitude. He owed it to her. He was grateful for everything that happened in spite of the backlash against her.
