So the reason RIPEllen is now trending on Twitter is because there are rumors that his talk show is getting the ax.
Ellen has been on the air for a while now, and with all of this COVID-19 pandemic going on, many of these talk shows are struggling.
Many of them have opted for a “do it yourself at home” approach, and some shows have had some success with this new format.
The tastes of The Daily Show avec Trevor Noah and Last week tonight with John Oliver still pulled off good numbers, despite doing everything themselves and filming stuff with their phones from their own living room.
However, other shows did not go so well.
The tastes of The late show with Stephen Colbert, The Late Late Show with James Cordon, Tonight’s show with Jimmy Fallon and so on have struggled to keep the same energy as their emissions usually have.
These shows all have a hard time because they depend on a studio audience and doing things live from a studio.
Jimmy Kimmel even chose to go on vacation and asked a bunch of celebrities to host his show while he was gone.

So there are now reports that Ellen’s show may be about to be canceled and that is why people are tweeting RIPEllen.
This comes after there have been allegations brought against her by former staff supposed that Ellen was a brute behind the scenes.
All of this led her to become slightly unpopular with part of the American population.
She often trends on Twitter for reasons like this and in fact, the whole “Ellen is a bully” saga was started by someone on Twitter asking people for stories of Ellen hard to work.
This sparked a deluge of tweets, and of course, many of those tweets were unsubstantiated.
That said, there were many.
Anyway, let’s go back to Ellen’s show. These are just rumors that it has been canceled and nothing has been officially announced yet.

It signed a contract in 2019 which will not end until 2022, so its issue is still under contract.
Back on March 11, DeGeneres announced via Twitter that it would be filming its audience-free show in the studio due to the coronavirus pandemic.
She then posted another tweet on March 13 stating that the show had been suspended until March 30.
Since April 6, Ellen has been filming the cat in the comfort of her own home.
