Ellen DeGeneres blamed the “misogynistic” press for the negative attention she got last summer amid allegations that her daytime talk show was a toxic workplace. The hostess acknowledged that it’s not uncommon for people to “get picked on” but complained that she faced criticism for “four months straight.”

“I have to say, if nobody else is saying it, it was really interesting because I’m a woman, and it did feel very misogynistic,” the TV host, 63, said Thursday on “Today,” where she discussed her bombshell decision to end “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in 2022 after 19 seasons.

When Savannah Guthrie asked Ellen DeGeneres whether she felt like she was “being canceled” in the wake of the controversy, the comedian replied, “I mean, I really don’t understand it. I still don’t understand it. It was too orchestrated. It was too coordinated.”

“And then for me to read in the press about a toxic work environment when all I’ve ever heard from every guest that comes on the show is what a happy atmosphere this is and what a happy place is,” she added.
