Ellen DeGeneres vows to gift fans free cash as she faces accusations she’s ‘mean’ – The Sun
ELLEN DeGeneres has vowed to gift fans free cash after she faced embarrassing accusations that she’s "mean".
The talk show host first came under fire in March and then again last week as an angry ex-staffer claimed that all the recent reports of her "rude" demeanor are "true."
The latest story surfaced after a former bodyguard branded the multi-millionaire "cold."
But Ellen, 62, has publicly ignored the sensational and instead has continued to plug her show EllenTube in lockdown, also sharing updates on her charitable ventures.
Recent tweets called upon fans to nominate people impacted by the coronavirus so that she could wire them $250.
Ellen wrote on Twitter last night: "You can nominate someone who’s been affected by the quarantine, and I might Venmo them $250!
"Let’s #VenmoItForward. Sending love to you all. #ThanksSponsor"
And her latest tweets said other fans could get free cash if they shared videos of them taking on the 'Patience Challenge'.
Ellen said: "I saw @KylieJenner do the #PatienceChallenge with Stormi, and it was so adorable that I had to start an @ellentube challenge. Send me yours, and you could win $250!"
However, some fans were more concerned for her employees and one hit back: "If you’re such a lovely woman Ellen (which I’m sure you are) why don’t you ensure your wonderful staff who have mortgages & bills to pay in this nightmare receive their full salaries before yours bearing in mind your net worth?"
Another fan wrote: "Maybe you should just start with paying your staff instead of trying to look for an excuse to venmo people 250 bucks. The people that you've worked with been doing the #PatienceChallenge for years."
