Ellen might be the queen of nice, but when she says ‘one item per audience member, she means it! What starts as a video that looks like any other Ellen video quickly turns into one of the most cringeworthy and hard to look away from moments on daytime television in a very long time. It starts out sweet enough…the audience members were all told they could take one item from the gift shop with them, free of charge. And they do. Most of them. But one woman decides to take a second item for her sister (who wasn’t able to attend) and Ellen calls her out on public television for it. Take a look!
On one hand I get where Ellen is coming from: the woman did take more than she was supposed to take. But at the same time, I can not imagine what this woman went through after being called out for what she did on national television. It was horrifying. I mean, yes she did wrong, but was what she did so wrong that she deserved all that?
