Celebrities love calling for everyone to be canceled and boycotted but when was the last time we got a good wholesome apology from one of them saying, “you know what? I was wrong. I’m sorry.” As Ellen DeGeneres is ending her show, her excuse is embarrassingly pathetic.
“I need something new to challenge me” is what she says it boiled down to. “When you’re a creative person you constantly need to be challenged – and as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore,” DeGeneres told The Hollywood Reporter.
Social media users are not letting her get off the hook that easily. While admitting that “Ellen broke television barriers of insane proportions and was truly a pioneer of the industry” said one user, “that being said, this reason she cites to end the show is so laughable…like the challenge of changing your toxic work culture wasn’t hard??” they added.
Good point. The Hollywood Reporter writes of Ellen’s experiences which one would think were quite good “challenges:”
But this past year has not been without controversy. On the heels of a series of personal swipes that DeGeneres says “destroyed” her, came a July BuzzFeed News exposé detailing allegations of a toxic workplace. The latter, which DeGeneres says she learned about through the press, prompted an internal investigation and the dismissal of key executives.
The host, who’s built her brand on the motto “Be Kind,” opened season 18 in September with a lengthy apology, telling viewers, “I learned that things happen here that never should have happened. I take that very seriously. And I want to say I am so sorry to the people who were affected.”
While the mea culpa was widely viewed — Ellen’s highest-rated premiere in years, per The New York Times — viewership quickly tumbled, even as Hollywood’s A-list remained loyal guests.
