Sexual harassment isn’t just a male problem, although feminists would like you to believe it is. Ladies are full of love for each other, men are just animals. Liberalism can and often does bite itself. Liberals love their free stuff. But because sponsors for Ellen were backing out, the money to buy that free stuff isn’t there. Nothing is free, somebody has to pay for it. Just like news, TV needs ratings or eyes.
Ellen went Hollywood
Bad idea if you want staying power. Hollywood is so plastic. People are fed up with plastic. One publicist spoke on condition of anonymity, “I wouldn’t set up anyone on her show right now to do anything that could possibly cause them more negative headlines. You have to tread so carefully with your clients and your clients’ reputations, so you don’t want to put your client in any line of fire sympathizing with someone that any community or anyone would feel bad about. We’re not going to align anyone with Ellen.
“It felt very set up. It’s a place that’s very manufactured for Scooter Braun or for Kim Kardashian’s family to say whatever they wanted. It became something manufactured as opposed to something more authentic, which it used to be. Ellen started veering towards super Hollywood years ago as opposed to being who she is, and she lost her realness along the way.”
The Ellen show has a Black Friday as well
A current employee talked about the “12 days of Giveaways”. “In a typical year, ‘12 Days of Giveaways’ is huge. We’ve basically claimed Christmas on daytime TV. When you think of Christmas on TV, you think of The Ellen Show.”
“Everyone wants to be in the audience. Everyone wants the gifts. And so we line up all these crazy sponsors, and people love it. But this year, our ‘12 Days’ is more condensed. We don’t have as many sponsors.”
“[Ellen’s] not giving away these amazing trips, which were sort of the hallmark of ’12 Days’ over the past few years, sending audiences to amazing places. There are travel restrictions and she’s giving gifts that are appropriate for the world right now,”
The Ellen show is just as sensitive to trickle down as anybody else
With no movies, concerts or premieres, there are less clients to talk to. The toxic work atmosphere and harassment allegations are keeping clientele away from even video conferencing. They can’t be seen under a cloud of negativity.
It didn’t help that communication dropped off. Evan Nierman, is the founder and CEO of Red Banyan, the public relations firm. Evan mentioned that, among other things, her Instagram account went dark for two months. The executives didn’t “take aggressive steps to address it or do a good job of communicating how they were going to remedy the situation”. Advertisers didn’t like the silence. So they left.
