Ellen’s controversial video during the pandemic.
During the 2020 epidemic, things were very different in the world. Many people worried that things would never be the same again after many schools and businesses were shut down for weeks on account of a deadly virus. To keep airing Ellen’s program, she decided to broadcast it live on YouTube instead of her usual TV channel.
When she said that being at home was like jail, it meant that she was filming the “at-home edition” of her show from her palatial residence with Portia. It incensed people and her fans when she likened being at home to imprisonment. Many individuals couldn’t work for months, including herself, which rubbed many others wrong.
