NikkieTutorials EXPOSES Ellen Degeneres For Not Letting Her Use The Bathroom On Show
Last month, Youtuber NikkieTutorials revealed that she did not have such a pleasant experience during her time on The Ellen Show. In this appearance, she spoke about coming out as transgender. Now, she is giving more specific details about what went down during her time on the show and what had her so ticked off.
NikkieTutorials Opened Up About Her Experience With Ellen In Magazine Interview
Nikkie, who rarely does interviews, sat down with a Dutch magazine and was not shy to talk about her experience on the show. “Maybe I’m being naive but I expected them to welcome me with confetti,” she said. Ellen did not even say “hi” to her before the show started. “But instead, I got greeted by an angry intern, who was a bit overworked. I expected a Disney show, but I got a Teletubbies after dark,” she continued.
This comes after Nikkie blasted Ellen on a talk show in The Netherlands. She spoke about how there is a huge difference between being on The Ellen Show and being on the talk show in The Netherlands. Nikkie described The Ellen Show as being a different world. She agreed that it was “more cold and distant.” She finished speaking on the matter by saying the experience wasn’t as good as she thought.
She Noticed That Other Celebs had Their Own Bathrooms Backstage On ‘The Ellen Show’
Now, the YouTuber revealed that she could not even use the bathroom before the show. “Every guest at Ellen had a private toilet, but I didn’t. I couldn’t even use the closest toilet to me, because it was reserved for the Jonas Brothers. They were allowed, I wasn’t, I thought. Even though looking back, my interview got eight million views, while theirs only got two million. Ha!” Her interview actually now has close to 9.3 million views.
It is clear that she is a big star with her whopping 13.3 million subscribers on YouTube. She felt like she should have been treated better and was a bit let down from the whole experience. Before the show, she tweeted about her excitement and how it’s always been a dream of hers to appear on it. She also posted an Instagram picture with Ellen and thanked her for the opportunity. But it seems like those dreams were met with a reality that her expectations did not match.
NikkieTutorials Is Still Happy With The Experience
Even though this all went down, Nikkie still said that she is happy with the experience. The Ellen Show is a huge platform and she got to share her story with the entire world. But, she was quick to say that she definitely could’ve chosen someone else to interview her. She turned down a lot of other interviews before agreeing to come on The Ellen Show. “For people who didn’t know me, it was a good summary of my story. But the people who did know me expected more. I should’ve just went on Eva Jinek I thought to myself,” she said. Eva is a very popular Dutch talk show host.
Other people who have worked for Ellen have made similar negative complaints about her. One Twitter user said that Ellen has a “sensitive nose.” If she thinks one of her staff members smells then she makes them go home and shower. So it seems like Nikkie’s claims weren’t so shocking after all.
When asked what is still left on her bucket list, Nikkie said that she wants to meet Adele. But she continued to shade Ellen by saying “Even though after being on Ellen I thought to myself, don’t meet your idols.”
