Ellen DeGeneres has been under fire with accusations of subordinates being mistreated all across the board behind the scenes of her show. Rumors are even flying that she is thinking about leaving the show. As a result, some of her friends have spoken up to back her. One such friend was Kevin Hart. Yesterday, the 41-year-old actor shared a heartfelt post about Ellen and their relationship as friends on Instagram:
The post read:
“It’s crazy to see my friend go thru what she’s going thru publicly. I have known Ellen for years and I can honestly say that she’s one of the dopest people on the fucking planet. She has treated my family and my team with love and respect from day 1. The internet has become a crazy world of negativity….we are falling in love with peoples down fall. It’s honestly sad…When did we get here? I stand by the ones that I know and that I love. Looking forward to the future where we get back to loving one another….this hate shit has to stop. Hopefully it goes out of style soon….This post is not meant to disregard the feelings of others and their experiences….It’s simply to show what my experiences have been with my friend. Love you for life Ellen…”
In case you forgot, DeGeneres was the first person to reach out to Hart to have him on her show when he came under fire for his past tweets involving homophobia which ruined his opportunity to host the Oscars. Some believe the post about Ellen was with good intention.
Despite Kevin coming forth to tell his side of the story, the internet had an arsenal of cut-throat criticism and comments to share about him and Ellen. Hit the flip and see how badly he’s getting dragged for all of it.
“kevin hart and katy perry were basically like “yeah Ellen’s employees were in toxic work environment but I love ellen! she was nice to me! she’s my friend!” like of course she was?? Y’all are her celebrity guests? What did you think sharing your story was gonna do? “
“Why is anybody surprised at Kevin Hart caping for Ellen? After Soul Plane, he took a deep dive for white alignment and never looked back.”
“Breonna Taylor was killed in her home as she slept. It’s been 144 days. No arrests. No more burning buildings. No justice. But what is Kevin Hart doing? Using his celebrity to defend Ellen Degeneres. Whew. Each and every goddamn day y’all show us how much you hate Black women.”
“I thought the problem with Ellen was that she was allowing executives on her show to be racist and sexual harassers and bullies and not doing s*** about it so what the f*** does Ellen being nice to kevin hart and katy Perry have to do with anything”
“Ellen’s employees: The culture is toxic and terrible and you can’t look Ellen in the eye because she’s a psycho celebrity
Kevin Hart, celebrity: Well she’s been nice to me so it must be a you problem”
“Kevin Hart defending Ellen then she def did whatever is going on. Please don’t inform me I do not care.”
“was really disappointed in Ellen when I heard about her character from minimum wage production assistants who have no influence and how she treated them, but when I heard from huge millionaire superstars Katy Perry and Kevin Hart that she treated them well I felt so much better!”
“Ellen really going to the bottom of the barrel to get people like Kevin Hart and Katy Perry to vouch for her.”
