Ellen DeGeneres and her meanness
There was an incident which occurred on the show. But it was downplayed and shown as if nothing heinous happened. Because the episode showed that both Ellen and the audience member involved were smiling. But in fact, a dissection of the event revealed that Ellen is mean with the audience as well.
Once, Ellen laid down a table in front of the studio and put her merchandise on it. Each audience member was to take one item as a gift. But she wanted to pick up the person who violated what was told to them with help of hidden cameras. She spotted one person who picked up more than one item and called her out. Additionally, she shamed her on national TV and labeled her a shoplifter.
