The final episode of Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show has aired after almost two decades on-air.
The 64-year-old TV presenter, who first hosted The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2003, fronted the season 19 finale on Friday, where she dropped a bombshell about a word she was banned from saying when the show first started.
“I couldn’t say ‘gay’ on the show. I was not allowed to say ‘gay’,” DeGeneres told viewers.
“I said it at home a lot. ‘What are we having for gay breakfast?’ Or ‘pass the gay salt.’ ‘Has anyone seen the gay remote?’ — things like that,” she joked, before revealing what else about her private life she was banned from mentioning when the show started.
The decision to quit came after a woke crusade against her in 2020.
In the millennial culture of woke micro aggression policing, everything is subjective. The ability to escalate an innocuous event into a hate crime is only ever one tweet away.
Maybe in a complex system of neoliberal economic hegemony, millennial culture micro aggression policing is the only power individuals feel they have left, but the distortion of objective facts by personal emotion legitimised by the grim wheel of intersectionism victimhood has birthed an ocean of social media cacophony all proclaiming their scars as the worst wound.
Subjective micro aggression policing is warping the space time continuum.
I was astounded at the manner in which Ellen was on endless news repeat 2 years ago within our mainstream media. On and on it went, as if Ellen was the single worst human being in Western Civilisation.
I remember Ellen as a crusader for Lesbian identity and her coming out was a really big deal. Her show seems to be loved by people and she tries to inject some smiles in a pretty depressed world.
In the post me too world where the evidential threshold is whatever anyone says on twitter, Ellen’s crimes against humanity was not giving a make up artist their own toilet, she didn’t make a body guard feel welcome, she was mean spirited about some cracked nails on a waitress and a host of other bullshit events which if true amounts to nothing more than someone pushing past you at a shop and you deciding that amounts to genocide.
So what if Ellen is at times rude, how does that take anything away from her legacy or the joy her shows have generated for millions. The grim wheel of intersectionism victimhood denotes that Ellen is a white cishet passing lesbian with enormous wealth so fuck her for making people smile when she is in fact grumpy behind the scenes.
The language of catastrophe that most of those throwing accusations against Ellen are truly hilarious and have that whiff of emotional support peacock safe space preciousness about them.
The phrase ‘Toxic workplace’ should be reserved for Chernobyl or Harvey Weinstein’s hotel room, not Ellen’s show.
Look at how quickly the micro aggression policing Twitter mobs jumped on a previous tweet by Ellen to prove that she’s secretly Hannibal Lecter…
…turns out Ellen had given the worker a huge cash donation and the staff member was crying because she was happy.
Based on the subjective micro aggression policing accusation, the behind the scenes work environment at the Ellen Show is sandwiched somewhere between the Chinese Uyghur Internment camps and Soviet Union era gulags.
It’s sad that crusading micro-aggression policing has replaced appreciation of the art and creativity created.
Ellen will be fine, but the glee and excitement of so many when the woke Lynch mob rides is an alarming new development for a culture that was already pretty shitty.
