Ellen DeGeneres is facing some intense online backlash after making a joke about prison in the at-home rendition of her show.
Because of the coronavirus lockdown, Ellen decided to film a short version of her show with the help of her wife Portia de Rossi.
"I wanted to start doing my new show as soon as possible because it's really for people who are stuck at home, and especially my staff and crew. I love them, I miss them, and the best thing I can do to support them is to keep the show on the air," she shared in her first living room episode.
While the episode started out innocent enough, with expressions of gratitude for first responders and healthcare workers, things went south quick when Ellen compared quarantining to being incarcerated.
