Ellen DeGeneres is feeling the pressure of supporting Black Lives Matter after posting a vague tweet about the ongoing protests across America.

The 62-year-old talk show host was heavily criticized on Twitter.com after she posted a tweet referring to Black people as "people of color."

"Like so many of you, I am angry and I am sad," DeGeneres wrote on Saturday. "People of color in this country have faced injustice for far too long. For things to change, things must change."

Her tweet brought an avalanche of criticism from Black people who refuse to be relegated to people of color.

"Not people of color. George Floyd was black," wrote on furious Twitter user. "Why being so callous? Seriously?"

DeGeneres counts the Obamas and Jay-Z among her influential Black friends. But social media users declare DeGeneres is woefully out of touch with the Black community.

"I still find it funny how Ellen Degeneres, a woman who is famous for boastfully signing life-size checks to random people on her show, can't even post a screenshot on the internet of her donating money in support of Black lives," another Twitter user wrote.

Ellen DeGeneres is reportedly "at the end of her rope" after her employees and former staffers called her "mean" and said she is difficult to work with.

DeGeneres began trending on Twitter when beauty YouTuber Nikkie de Jager (a.k.a. NikkieTutorials) accused DeGeneres of being "cold and distant" when the blogger appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in January.

Then comic Kevin T. Porter sent out a tweet urging people to message him "the most insane stories... about Ellen" to raise money for a Los Angeles food bank.

Porter's timeline was flooded with messages from people who described her as "notoriously one of the meanest people alive."

A former bodyguard, who protected the 62-year-old television mogul at the 2014 Oscars, described her as being "cold".

Tom Majercak claims DeGeneres refused to make eye contact with him and treated him in a "demeaning" manner.

"Ellen is the one person that I've been assigned to - and I've been assigned to quite a few celebrities - that has never taken the time to say hi to me," Majercak told Fox News.

He said DeGeneres's life partner, Portia de Rossi, 47, was "nice" and he said she spoke to him while DeGeneres acted like he didn't exist.

Staffers described the openly lesbian TV host as being "mean" and others said "she isn't always nice" to her employees.

A source told the New York Post, "It irritates me that people think she's all sweetness and light and she gets away with it."

DeGeneres was slammed as "tone deaf" after she complained that being at home in her $27 million California mansion was "like being in jail."

Ellen is taping her show with a skeleton crew from her home while on quarantine.

Crew members said they were told to expect a 60 percent decrease in their take home pay, while DeGeneres continues to earn $77 million per year.

DeGeneres managed to find one friend who defended her publicly on Wednesday.

The unnamed source told Us Weekly that "Ellen is at the end of her rope."

"She thought this was all just sour grapes from a few haters. But it's not a passing thing — the hits just keep coming."
