Frank Ocean’s brother, Ryan Breaux, 18, was in a fatal car crash in Thousand Oaks, California this Sunday. His identity has not yet been confirmed by the medical examiner, but friends on the scene identified him to ABC7 News. An outpouring of support and well-wishes followed. (As well as the usual insensitivity.)

Ellen DeGeneres Might Be Out Of A Job

mm

Published

on

After years of rumors, Ellen’s behind-the-scenes behavior is being shot into the mainstream, and… it isn’t pretty. The national uprisings have made the people bold. We’ve created a culture of protest, and that means workers are starting to speak out about the abuses they’ve faced, knowing that, honestly, it doesn’t get much worse than the lay-offs and cut hours they’ve already faced because of COVID-19. It all started with a Twitter thread:

Soon, the stories started pouring in. Before we knew it, Buzzfeed was busting this story wide open. “Ellen”, apparently, was a toxic work environment where there things like racism were allowed to float about unchecked. There were countless other reports of Ellen being a diva who didn’t want “unauthorized” people looking at her. Hell, they said she didn’t even tell her workers whether they’d be paid during the pandemic. She cried an apology.

Ellen DeGeneres
“Ellen”

This weekend, the nail met the coffin as a number of outlets reported that James Corden was posed to replace Ellen. Nearly all publications were quick to suggest that this is just rumor, since Ellen is set to return to her show soon, but rumors come from somewhere. I’ve worked in and around Hollywood for a long time. Ms. Ellen’s business wouldn’t be in these streets if WarnerMedia wasn’t planning to put her out there with it.

If you wanna learn more. The Washington Post’s nosey ass has all the details. In the meantime, please enjoy these tweets: #TiffanyPollardForEllen
