Twitter Comes For Ellen Who Compares Her Mansion To Jail


Note to self – comparing your mansion to jail just might not set well with prisoners or others who are otherwise suffering.Ellen DeGeneres is finding this out the hard way

In case you missed it, Ellen’s return to TV involved her broadcasting from the palatial home she shares withPortia de Rossi. Everything was going well at first. She talked about the importance of everyone staying at home and applauded the healthcare workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis. Then she joked about the positives of being in the house together. “It’s nice, actually,” she said. “Because we get to spend time together and talk and really get to know each other. Did you know she was Australian?” 

Then things took a turn for the worst. “This is like being in jail,” Ellen said. “Mostly because I’ve been wearing the same clothes for 10 days and everyone in here is gay.” 

To say the joke didn’t go over well is an understatement. After the show, fans took to social media to express their disdain. “What a great look for Ellen as thousands of people sit in actual jail cells just hoping for the best without soap and basic protections,” one person said. Another said, “Ellen, you quarantining in your mansion with designer sweats is nothing like prison.” But the one that really summed up the general sentiment was, “Ellen really is the worst.” Check out the responses below…

Ellen does her first show from home: “Being in quarantine is like being in jail. It’s mostly because I’ve been wearing the same clothes for ten days and everyone in here is gay.”

I’d almost assume that Ellen’s stupid “everyone in jail is gay” joke would be nixed in a normal filming situation but she’s always been awful

I’m thinking of you and sending love to you all. There’s no better way for me to do that than from my show.
