Ellen Slammed for Quarantine Joke?

"Ellen DeGeneres upset many fans by comparing her time self-quarantining at home to jail.
The 62-year-old comedian, like many in the business, hosted her talk show from the comfort of her home amid the ongoing coronavirus
pandemic in an effort to minimise crowds and maintain social distancing etiquette.
She opened her show with a monologue from her
living room in which she extended her gratitude to medical workers and everyone else on the front lines of combating COVID-19.

The host went on to thank her wife, Portia de Rossi, for acting as her camera crew along with their dog, Augie."

"Portia and I have been quarantining for three weeks now and it’s nice, actually, because we get to spend time together and talk and just really get to know each other, right?
Did you know that she’s Australian?
Fascinating,” the star deadpanned.
However, during her opening monologue, the star made a joke about quarantining with her wife being similar to
incarceration, which upset many of her viewers."

I don't watch Ellen's TV show, but I do like her, even if she does overstep the line, now and again with her jokes.

I only just realized while writing this post up that Ellen's birthday falls on Australia Day (January 26th):-)
January 26th, 2020 was also the day Kobe Bryant passed away -

Not all synchronicity is good it seems in the dark waters of life.
