Ellen Degeneres is in hot waters as her television show is hit by one controversy after another over serious allegations relating to racism, toxic workplace culture, bullying, and more. A few months ago, a shocking Twitter thread opened a can of worms about the famous talk show host's not-so-kind behavior once the cameras stopped rolling.
Ellen, who's famous for her mantra "Be Kind" came under fire for being mean to her employees and other celebrities who have appeared on her show. Over the course of the last few months, more and more of her staff members have come forward with allegations against Ellen and the producers of the show. The disgraced talk show host is even considering quitting to save face, leaving fans wondering who will replace her.
One newspaper claims that the producers are currently in talks with James Corden, who could be a potential replacement for Ellen, should she retire from her namesake show. But producers might be forced to reconsider after Twitter came for Corden, claiming that the "Late Late Show" is no better than Ellen.

The Ellen Degeneres Show, owned by WarnerMedia, is facing a serious internal investigation after too many ex-employees and current staff members spoke up about the toxic management and workplace culture.
Since then, the show's executives have released statements to apologize for their negligence, and vowing to take action against the perpetrators. However, Ellen herself has been awfully quiet about the issue, leading many to believe that she might not be sorry for her behavior after all. But the backlash is not going to stop the cameras from rolling. In response to a fan, the show's executive producer, Andy Lassner, said that 'nobody is going off-air.'
As Twitter caught on to the news of James Coden's succession, users were quick to call out the British host for his unkind behavior in the past. Sources have claimed that producers were eyeing Corden even before any of the allegations came to surface, potentially because of Ellen's looming retirement.
Louis Peitzman even quoted the Page Six story with a sarcastic caption calling Corden 'famously kind' to allude to his past scandals, which prompted other users to share their stories and experiences with the British host.
So much more to him that Americans don't know.— Epi Curious, PhD (@shagpokewhipple) August 2, 2020
