Ellen DeGeneres, the host of her popular chat show, is known for her bright personality on screen, warmly welcoming, and entertaining all the guests on her show. However, now her former bodyguard has accused her of unfriendly behavior and shared that the way she treats people outside of those who are in her circle, is demeaning. This isn’t the first time Ellen has faced accusations like these. Even in the past, several people had called her out for her alleged cold and unfriendly behavior.
Ellen’s former bodyguard Tom Majercak, who was assigned to her for 2014 Oscars, accused the host of unfriendly and cold behavior. He shared that the way she treats people outside of those who are in her circle, is demeaning. In an interview with Fox News, he recounted his experience, “I’m holding their hands and walking them through individuals and large groups of people. Ellen is the one person that I’ve been assigned to- and I’ve been assigned to quite a few celebrities- that has never taken the time to say hi to me.”
He went on to say that Ellen’s wife Portia De Rossi was ‘very pleasant and carried on a conversation’. “It started going negatively when she introduced me to Ellen and Ellen pretty much just gave me a side glance out of her eye and didn’t even say ‘hello,’ or ‘thank you for protecting my mother, my wife and me,’” he added. He said that it has been bugging him for years, how Ellen comes across being enlightened and a very positive person and everybody loves her but said that is not the case when you meet her in person. “It was very cold and it was very sly and it was actually kind of demeaning in the way that she treats people other than those who are in her circle,” he said.
Earlier YouTube star Nikkie Tutorials had also spoken up about the negative experience she went through when she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. ALSO READ: Crew Members Of Ellen DeGeneres' Show Furious Over Lack Of Communication Regarding Pay Amidst The Coronavirus Lockdown
