ELLEN DeGeneres is criticized for its $ 270 Be Kind gift sets, as customers complain they haven’t “received” theirs.
The TV host promoted the box which she said is about “spreading cuteness and showcasing brands that do the same.”
Paying customers are not happy with the gift sets which include headphones, a paint set, a collapsible mug, and a gold “hope” necklace.
One customer wrote: “I am still waiting for mine. When are they mailed?”
Another rang: “Why is customer service SO HARD TO ANSWER !! We can only contact by email ?! But they don’t respond ?!
“So irritated by these boxes and this service.”
While one person added: “I never had my summer box, I can’t get anyone to answer my emails … I don’t even have an account for some reason anymore. , but I still have my bill. “
Other people who received the box were not happy with the contents of the box, as one of them revealed: “My headphones are not working and cannot touch anyone !!!” while one of them said: “The headphones in my box are not working very well – very disappointed with the quality.”
It all comes as Ellen, 62, struck the summer deal with “toxic” workplace claims, which ultimately led to upheaval when three of the show’s producers, Ed Glavin and Kevin Leman and co-executive producer Jonathan Norman, were fired.
A source previously told The Sun exclusively, “It was never a ‘nice’ place. Ellen’s philosophy of “being kind” was never mentioned to us when we were working.
“I’m speaking out because I’m concerned that the people who allowed this ‘toxic’ environment to happen have got away with it and they are still working on it.”
The TV personality would end up responding to the “toxic” claims as according to The Hollywood Reporter she told her staff, “I care about each of you. I am grateful to each of you.
“I feel like I dropped the ball a bit because I’m focused on the show, I go in and I do the show, and I just let everyone do their jobs – running different departments. “
She continued, “And it just became a well-oiled machine, and I think that’s the problem. It is not a machine. They are people. These are human beings who work hard every day to put this together.

“This show wouldn’t be what it is without all of you. It has become the show that it’s because of all of you. So if we somehow forgot you – the one from us – I’m sorry. “
However, this week, an employee of The Ellen DeGeneres Show revealed to BuzzFeed News that at least 17 people have been made redundant from the team, which originally consisted of 80 people.
Ellen replied, “Know that we believe in you and I know you have a hard time hearing it, and we are here for you.”
