Ellen Degeneres is one of the most well-known talk show hosts on primetime TV. She always ends her segments by telling her audience to "be kind," but is she practicing what she preaches? People online say others. Kevin T. Porter is a comedian who took to social media to slam Degeneres for not being as nice as she claims to be.\r\n\r\n\u201cRight now we all need a little kindness,\u201d Porter wrote on Twitter recently. \u201cYou know, like Ellen Degeneres always talks about!\u201d he writes. "She\u2019s also notoriously one of the meanest people alive.\r\nRespond to this with the most insane stories you\u2019ve heard about Ellen being mean & I\u2019ll match every one w\/ $2 to @LAFoodBank"\r\nIs Ellen Degeneres actually as mean as people say she is?\r\nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/KevinTPorter\/status\/1241049881688412160?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1241049881688412160&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cheatsheet.com%2Fentertainment%2Fcelebrity%2Fis-ellen-degeneres-actually-mean-many-tweeters-are-sharing-not-so-nice-stories-about-the-be-kind-tv-host.html%2F\r\n\r\nThis prompted people across the Internet to begin sharing their not-so-pleasant experiences with the talk show host. A former staff member of the show recalls, "I worked for her show for a couple years on the digital team. I\u2019m afraid I have no stories of negative interactions with her on account of we weren\u2019t allowed to talk to or in any way interact with her."\r\n\r\nRELATED: 22-Year-Old Hilariously Attempts To Load A 35mm Film Camera On \u2018Ellen\u2019\r\n\r\nA former server recalls, "I worked @RealFoodDaily, served her & Porsha at brunch. She wrote a letter to the owner & complained about my chipped nail polish (not that it was on her plate but just that it was on my hand). I had worked till closing the night before & this was next morn, almost got me fired."\r\nApparently working on Ellen's show is no fun either\r\n\r\n\r\nAnother tweets out, \u201cWorked at her favorite 3 Michelin star restaurant in college (dinner bills 5k + regularly). REFUSES TO TIP. One time staff stayed 4 hours past closing for her.\u201d Some others didn't need a personal interaction\/experience with Degeneres to claim that she's not a nice person. \u201cEllen scares people??? With the things they are notoriously afraid of????? Everyday???? On live TV????\u201d someone writes.\r\n\r\nWriter and comedian Benjamin Siemon also has a story. \u201cShe has a \u2018sensitive nose\u2019 so everyone must chew gum from a bowl outside her office before talking to her and if she thinks you smell that day you have to go home and shower,\u201d he claims.\r\n$600 ended up being donated to the LA Food Bank as a result of these stories\r\nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/ChaseMit\/status\/1241053212460740608?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1241053212460740608&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cheatsheet.com%2Fentertainment%2Fcelebrity%2Fis-ellen-degeneres-actually-mean-many-tweeters-are-sharing-not-so-nice-stories-about-the-be-kind-tv-host.html%2F\r\n\r\nOne person actually heard of a Degeneres story from working on another show. "When I was working on @midnight, our stage manager (coolest mf\u2019er I\u2019ve ever worked with) told us to never work for Ellen. He told us she has signs up in her office that say 'Do not look the host in the eye.'" What?!\r\n\r\nAs a result of all the stories, Porter ended up donating $600 to the LA Food Bank. \u201cIf you can, please give to your local food banks because they are slammed right now,\u201d he says in a tweet, then follows up with more shade towards Degeneres. \u201c\u2026 honestly, be kind, especially to those in the most vulnerable positions right now. But be TRULY kind. Don\u2019t settle for a cheap imitation.\u201d Ouch.
