  • Seriously though... GO REGISTER TO VOTE! Okay? OKAY?! Cool. See ya right back here tomorrow.

    • Hahahahaha implying my registration isn’t randomly invalid despite the fact that I haven’t moved, committed a felony, let my identification expire, or died. You’re also implying that my governor hasn’t shut down nearly every polling place in my state, meaning that when my legally blind, non driving ass found out about this LITERALLY today, it didn’t mean that getting to a new polling place was impossible haha. “Just re register online!” one might say, as if I didn’t make multiple attempts at that very solution today, only to be confronted by a “Sorry! Your identification is valid!” warning every time I put in my current, not expired or suspended ID number. Too bad that even if I could have done anything, registration and renewal are taking over 60 days to finalize, according to multiple sources online who also had the same problem. Yikes. You’d think I’m a registered Democ- wait.... I WAS a registered Democrat?! YIKES! I’m not saying it’s a conspiracy, but I am saying I haven’t heard anyone from the se endless sea of republicans around me complain about this... ever, let alone this year. Hm. See if I ever participate in the bullshit concept that is democracy again. Nope, my new focus is getting out of this dumpster fire before I die since half the country clearly wants it to burn forever.d

They are promoting at most social democracy, the best political system that has been tried btw. But I'm guessing you're one of the dumbasses who thinks that Scandinavia is socialist or communist

    • True kindness is when you show it to those whom you old power over, those who need your help and kindness. When you’re only showing kindness in front of your boss or your audience who you depend on for success and wealth gain it’s called sucking up. Be kind when you’re in a position of power, when there is no PR, that’s real kindness.

  • I used to like Ellen, but the scandal and reports of her being very unpleasant outside her show are too convincing and damming. I agree that the monolog was her trying to save face and keep up the fake Ellen. There is no way she was unaware of the work conditions, either.

  • Other than being sick with the flu whenever I was a kid I’ve never watched Ellen.. But when people start talking about “ it’s a tactical move- she dosent believe what she says” I just have to turn them off. Lol why can’t it be sincere and tactical? Becuase she obviously needed to apologize and those motherfuckers where going to continue to cancel Ellen no matter what she did.

  • I believe her apology. And it's not because I stan. I realize people are not the same and we all handle things differently. This is how she apologises. Just like when some people dont apologise at all. Just like some people who argue for hours before eventually caving and apologising. Just like people who become snot faced when they apologise. Just like people who get serious and low tone of voice when they apologise. Just like people who get a high toned voice when they apologise. Just like people who look away when they apologise because they feel bad. There are people who make jokes when they apologise too. So grow the fuck up please.

    VissieVissie2 mánuðum síðan
  • i just don't know what else ellen should do here. she's apologized twice and tried to make good on promises of change, and it's STILL not enough. to be clear, if the ex-employees don't accept her apology, it's their right to do so. they were the ones harassed. but the internet at large just loves not forgiving shit.

  • No one is 100% consistent in their behaviour and mannerisms. We change based on situation appropriateness and moods. Though, that is all different than constantly harassing people, pressuring others to announce pregnancies, and cutting workers benefits. She put the 'be kind' label on herself, and it's not the labels fault that her behaviour was so toxic.

We have been kind of sidelined or not considered as important of a struggle ever since the inhumane struggles of the ughyur Muslims started surfacing, with so many Muslims around the world supporting them, we feel unsupported, unheard and helpless at times. Thank you for speaking about tibet. Free tibet, free uyghurs, free Hong Kong

  • the situation with Ellen is not specific to that show. Hollywood sets are brutal. especially for people below the line starting with those furthest from the top. i’m certainly not excusing her behavior or anyone on the crew/staff. i really hope that this situation changes the way that sets are run because some of the behavior and abuse that goes on is sick. i went to a boot camp at warner brothers and even that was abusive. they call it boot camp because they treat it like one. they want to scare you in submission and that is very accurate to what most sets are like as PAs and below the line staff at most studio productions.

  • Personally, I think that Ellen was subconsciously done with her show ages ago, and continuing to do it caused her to become bitter and apathetic. She's stuck in a rut and her comedic skills have atrophied. It's easy to slip into a selfish mode when you're "on top" for so long.

    mara huattamara huatta2 mánuðum síðan
  • Ellen is a comedian, everything can, will, is and should be fair game in comedy . Her apology seemed sincere to me and bringing humor into a painful situation helps show she is human and it allows her to address the issue without destroying the positive mood of the show. Sounds like some of these employees got what they want, but it’s not enough for them .

  • The "secret envelope" thing makes sense. If a postal worker, or anyone else down the line, saw the envelope and shone a light through it, they could see the vote. Then they could simply "lose" the undesirable votes. But they should have done more to make their citizens aware of the policy before mail-in ballots were accepted.

  • Ellen doesn't really seem to me like she respects her guests' boundaries and privacy. Much of her show now is also sharing others' content (tweets, Facebook posts, etc.) instead of providing original content, and it all just seems a bit insincere to me as a whole.

This INCLUDES our BALLOTS, (normal) mail: such as bills, correspondence, checks, junk mail, etc... (-funny enough, when they opened the 1st few bags, ALL the ballots dumped were IN FAVOR OF ... DONALD TRUMP.. ) Don't believe me? Check Tim Pool's YT channel.. he reported on it... So, YEAH, we ARE a battleground.. But it HAS TO BE HONEST & SOMEONE ISN'T PLAYING FAIR...

  • BELIEVE ALL WOMEN But seriously the people most adamantly against her are very much in the same group. I find the lack of reporting here disheartening and then just boom straight into a commercial. What's happening to this show Phil. It's a conversation. Where's your opinion on that? This conversation in the chat is weak these days. Thrown out ballets is a real issue, I thought there were no issues with mail in voting? I can't keep up. This is was Trump is talking about. I hope people don't fucking push them to accept them. That's a good policy for security and integrity of the election. If you can READ the vote, all of them have to be thrown out. If you "accept" them it leads to the ability of people to "lose" some candidates in the mail, and you never know if what you got is real or not. If it's not a secret vote, don't count it. That's a pretty integral part to our fair election. This is also why Trump is telling his voters to vote in person. There are rules and regulations about other ways of voting that very state to state. There's no way to be sure anything other than showing up and voting at the booth is accurate for everyone. People who always vote by mail, or vote early, should keep doing that. People who always vote in the booth, should do that. I don't see why you would try a different voting method when it's this important to vote. Maybe try that on a smaller ballet you get next year.

It got too repetitive and I begin to notice how straining the interaction/reaction from Ellen to her audience was.

Also she should have apologized for the horrible jail joke she said, which was very distasteful since so many inmates were/are getting sick with the virus. Also, celebrities in general have been super annoying during this pandemic. They're not doing well with not being the center of our attention anymore. We have other, more important things, to care about. On top of all the other shitty stuff I was already dealing with, I now have to worry about the virus, the election, and my actual future since the world kind of ended. I could care less about how Ellen is dealing with having to be quarantined in her mansion. Get over yourself. Nobody cares.

  • ''phoney'' is the word to describe a condition when one falls in love with the image ppl have put together of one all by themselves or what has been intentionally created for them to do so... then it's like a ''follow up'' to feed that image without anything but maintaining the image one has fallen in love as well, bc of the ''treatment'' and any level of adoration it gives one. ''oh, you love it, oh - you think it's me, oh i get this & that bc you think that about me? kk - i love it - the person you think i am to get this special treatment...i love it -this treatment'' underneath of it there is someone who just isn't the person, but loves being perceived for they love what it provides for them, bc others think they are all of it. there is no delusional crisis of who one is - they love what it gives, knowing it's not their natural behaviour but understanding what it gives them & they like it. instead of being the person they just like others to think they are - one is silent without the attention, the other is work to create an image...for the attention.
