When a person speaks out against a well-known celebrity, our first reaction is to ignore them. We assume they’re reacting out of jealousy or anger due to the celebrity’s fame. Often this is the case. But sometimes, people are spot on and we find out they were right when it’s too late. These celebrities tried to warn us about Ellen DeGeneres, a famous celebrity who found fame and won the hearts of millions of people.
Ellen started out as a struggling comedian and finally got her debut on “The Tonight Show.” After starring in two sitcoms in the late ’90s and early 2000s, she got her own show and won 30 Emmys and 20 People’s Choice Awards, But even though she won those and many other awards, that doesn’t mean she’s a kind person. It may come as a surprise that DeGeneres has a dark side, and a lot of other celebrities don’t like her. In fact, many people believe she’s one of the harshest, meanest celebrities in Hollywood behind the scenes. Several celebrities tried to warn us about just that, so find out who they are right here.
It comes as no surprise that DeGeneres is considered extremely privileged. Steve Jobs had firsthand experience with that privilege. Ellen had misplaced her glasses and couldn’t read the text on her phone. Instead of buying a new pair of glasses, she gave Jobs an unsolicited phone call to tell him the iPhone should have a larger font. Her producer said, “that’s her. She’s not terrible, it’s just that she lives in an incredibly privileged bubble and is out of touch with the real world.” That’s putting it lightly. How many times have you wished the iPhone was a tiny bit different to suit your own needs? Perhaps several, but it likely never crossed your mind to give Apple a call and ask him to change the entire iPhone just to suit your own needs (via Herald Weekly).
