Ellen DeGeneres has become the victim of a crime.
Investigators have revealed that the embattled talk show host and her wife, Portia de Rossi, were the victims of a home invasion over the Fourth of July weekend.
While that’s unquestionably a terrible thing, is it any wonder that it happened?
According to a press release put out by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi lost a lot of valuables on the Fourth of July. Amongst the things that were burglarized include “high value” watches and other expensive jewelry.
But what’s most interesting to note is the reason these two were targeted .
The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed thatthe Montecitohome of Ellen DeGeneres and Portia deRossi was burglarized on July 4, 2020. The residence appears to have been targeted due to the victim’s celebrity status.
That’s a pretty interesting reason to be targeted, wouldn’t you say?
To be clear, no one is suggesting that Ellen DeGeneres — or any other celebrity — deserves to be the victim of a crime. However, it’d be hard to ignore all the reasons why she’d be targeted in the first place.
Let’s remember that this is a woman who seems to delight in causing other people misery and harm — to the point that even her own employees are “glad” that people are coming forward to share their experiences. How much misery must you have inflicted on others to drive them to the point that they’re “glad” you’re undergoing a miserable reckoning?
It’s entirely possible, then, that the perpetrator of the crime is someone “close to home.” Certainly, there’s no shortage of people who are on DeGeneres’ “enemies” list. But then again, that’s to be expected from someone who is so miserable by nature.
Ellen DeGeneres doesn’t deserve to be the victim of a burglary. However, I’m not going to feel sorry for her, either — and I’m certainly not the only one who won’t shed a tear.
