With her reputation in tatters following revelations of how awful she really is and backlash over her tone-deaf comments, it’s a bit of an understatement to say that Ellen DeGeneres has had a pretty bad year so far. And now Ellen DeGeneres’ terrible, horrible, no good, very bad 2020 just got worse because she and Portia de Rossi are now victims of a burglary.
Speaking of Ellen DeGeneres, the GOAT team talk about how her 2020 has gone from bad to worse on ‘It’s Been A Big Day For…’ below:
According to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office (via TMZ), Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi were the victims of a home burglary after some thieves hit their boujee multi-million dollar LA mansion.
Authorities say that Ellen and Portia were targeted due to their celeb status (unsurprisingly) and it is reported that the thieves made off with a heap of stuff including “high-value jewellery and watches.” Following the robbery, the couple have reportedly hunkered down and turned their mansion into Fort Knox (again, unsurprisingly).
While it isn’t clear whether the couple were at home at the time of this robbery, authorities are working with other law enforcement agencies to see if this incident is connected to some other recent celebrity home burglaries. It’s not clear whether this is a Bling Ring 2.0 situation or an isolated incident but we can confirm one thing: Ellen’s 2020 just keeps getting worse.
So to tally up Ellen DeGeneres’ fustercluck of a year so far: A staff revolt over her poor treatment of employees, revelations that her “be kind” persona is bullcrap, getting called out by a bunch of people for being an awful person, backlash over some awful jokes and her piss-poor response to things like Black Lives Matters, rumours that her show may be cancelled, and now this home burglary incident.
That’s a lot and we’re only in July so one has to wonder what the rest of 2020 has in store for ol’ mate Ellen.
