15 Times Celebs Snapped Back At Ellen DeGeneres

Some celebrities go back at Ellen.

1. When NikkieTutorials most recently called out Ellen for the negative experience on her show:

"Call me naive, but I kind of expected to be welcomed with confetti cannons: 'Welcome to The Ellen DeGeneres Show!' But instead I was greeted by an angry intern who was a bit overworked," Nikkie said. "I was expecting a Disney show but got Teletubbies After Dark." Every guest at Ellen's had a private toilet, but I didn't. I was not allowed to use the nearest toilet because it was reserved for the Jonas Brothers. Why do they get a private toilet? I thought. But in the end, my [interview] had 8 million views afterwards and theirs 2 million, ha!"

2. When Dakota Johnson called out Ellen and said, "I didn't even know you liked me":
