A resurfaced tweet from Ellen DeGeneres appeared to show that her “be kind” mantra didn’t extend to her staff.
“I made one of my employees cry like a baby on today’s show,” she wrote on June 5, 2009. “Honestly, it felt good.”
The less-than-kind message comes amid 62-year-old DeGeneres’ attempt to apologize for her alleged toxic behavior behind-the-scenes of her eponymous talk show.
On a Zoom call Monday, DeGeneres addressed her employees and said that she had no clue where the rumored no-eye-contact rule began and that she was going to work to interact more with her staff.
She also announced the ouster of three top producers from “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”: executive producers Ed Glavin and Kevin Leman and co-executive producer Jonathan Norman.
A rep for DeGeneres didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
