Now that it’s trendy to attack ELLEN DEGENERES, one guy has come forward with a harrowing story about how he was bullied by Ellen . . . when he was just 11 years old . . . 41 YEARS AGO.
Yes, we’re digging up dirt from around 1979 now.
The guy, Ben Gravolet, is 52 now, but he says that back when he was 11, Ellen, who was around 20, “took pleasure” in calling him “fat” and “stupid”.
Ellen was working for Ben’s mother at the time . . . and he says that he would DREAD going into the office, because of Ellen’s insults.
He describes her as, quote, “the meanest, nastiest, most horrible person,” and adds, quote, “She was one of the most vile people I’ve ever met in my life.”
She even criticized his artistic talent. Quote, “I was sitting beside her desk. I was drawing, and she criticized the drawings. She said ‘I guess that would look nice if you could draw.'”
Ben claims that Ellen’s attacks stripped him of his ambition in life . . . if people tell him that he can’t do something, he just accepts it.
He was “traumatized” when he went to the movie theater and realized Ellen was a voice in “Finding Nemo”, and he refused to accompany his kids when they wanted to ride the “Nemo” ride at Disney.
It’s unclear what Ben wants out of all this . . . but he did say that he feels “vindicated” that people are now realizing that Ellen is not a nice person.
(The “Daily Mail” has an interview with this guy that you can watch.)
