Ellen DeGeneres has been undoubtedly the queen of daytime TV for many years. Promoting a ‘be kind’ mantra, The Ellen DeGeneres Show has garnered multiple awards and millions of fans from all over the world.

Although DeGeneres has built her career by being known as being the goofy and fun host, multiple reports as of late have changed the narrative. As OK! previously reported, the show has been under investigation by parent company Warner Media for allegations of “racism” and a “toxic” work environment.

There have been numerous cringeworthy moments involving celebrities over the years, perhaps giving fans clues into DeGeneres’ real personality.
