While the coronavirus pandemic has kept the world inside of their houses, inmates at prisons have been worried they’re going to catch the virus in their cramped and likely already-infected cell. Which is just like being at Ellen’s house! I mean, you know Ellen and her wife Portia de Rossi trade Honey Buns for cunnilingus. Ellen agrees and she made a joke about it. I’d say, “read the room, Ellen,” but she probably did, and the assistant she forced to be there was like, “Hilarious, Ms. DeGeneres, as always. Amazing! Comedy genius of our time! Please don’t yell at me. I have no more tears to cry!”
Ellen apparently needs to ask bestie George W. Bush about prison conditions, because she’s not up to date. Ellen and Portia have been quarantined in their palatial mansion for weeks now. She hasn’t been filming her show for obvious reasons but came back with episodes from home. On Monday’s episode, Ellen talked about her time in Chateau DeGeneres. It started out lighthearted and she spit out her usual PG comedy, but then she tried it with a jail joke. via Decider:
“Thanks for not being here. This is crazy. I wasn’t supposed to be doing my show from my house until next season… Today I am filming this in my living room because it has the best light and sound and all the other rooms in my house are filled with toilet paper… It’s nice, actually. Because we get to spend time together and talk and really get to know each other… Did you know she was Australian?… This is like being in jail. Mostly because I’ve been wearing the same clothes for 10 days and everyone in here is gay.”
Is that an Oz reference, Ellen? Because it didn’t work. And Twitter, who is staying on OUTRAGE mode, let her know that now is not the time:
What a great look for Ellen as thousands of people sit in actual jail cells just hoping for the best without soap and basic protections https://t.co/RBytt0Kl4B

People are literally dying in jail from COVID-19 while Ellen is out here making jokes about it. https://t.co/Z8cdnMDF5b

Doesn't…..she buy / redecorate / sell like….. multiple mansions a year?
People are dying, I'm afraid to leave my house every day but I have to, but ok go off Ellen. Social isolation is bad, stressful, and causes increased depression and anxiety but it ain't jail. https://t.co/vrKeI0K05g

Welp, I mean she’s really good at putting her foot in her mouth these days. As punishment I think she should put her money where her mouth is. She let us know that her home is now considered appropriate confinement for criminals. So she should invite Tekashi 6ix9ine to stay with her and she has to help him record his album!
