According to a report by Variety, more than 30 employees have yet to receive any written communication from producers of The Ellen DeGeneres Show across a range of issues from working hours and pay to inquiries about mental and physical health.
After the lockdown was announced in LA last month, Ellen moved the filming of her show from a studio to her Beverly Hills home – however only four crew members are currently being used to aid production.
Shockingly, many staff members only found out the remote home set had been built when it was posted on social media and that the production had brought on a new company to assist with the remote broadcast.
A spokesperson for Warner Bros. Television, who distribute the show, told Variety that no crew member lost their job due to the hiring of the new organisation, but also acknowledged communication with the crew could have been better, claiming 'chaos' caused by the coronavirus had brought on 'complications'.
The news follows the recent viral Twitter thread, in which a comedian offered to donate to coronavirus charities in exchange for stories about how the comedian is "notoriously one of the meanest people alive".
The Tweet received nearly 2000 unverified stories about varying degrees of nasty behaviour displayed by the 62-year-old.
Ellen also received heavy backlash for comparing self-isolating in her $27 million mansion to being in prison.
Meanwhile, YouTube star and recent Ellen Show guest NikkieTutorials - real name Nikkie de Jager – recently revealed her life-long dream to appear on the Ellen show was a bitter let down.
The social media star claimed she wasn’t allowed to use the private bathroom closest to her dressing room as it had been reserved exclusively for the Jonas brothers.
"Maybe I'm being naive, but I expected them to welcome me with confetti: 'Welcome to The Ellen DeGeneres Show!' but instead I got greeted by an angry intern, who was a bit overworked," she said to Dutch magazine &C.
