Just recently on February 11th, a clip from the ‘Ellen DeGeneres Show’ was uploaded on the show’s YouTube channel.
And some South Korean netizens have been criticizing the talk show host, as they felt that she spoiled the plot of the film ‘Parasite’, which recently won the Oscars, for people who have not watched it.
The video that was uploaded on the channel was also titled as “Ellen Texted Bong Joon Ho a Nude Photo, and He Hasn’t Responded”.
Ellen DeGeneres claims that she sent the ‘Parasite’ director a nude photo, but has not responded yet. South Korean netizens also found this rude as well.
Moreover, because Ellen DeGeneres seems to have spoiled the entire movie while explaining the plot, many netizens also believe that she hasn’t watched the film either, which also caused them to be critical.
However, there have been netizens who have stated that its just how Ellen jokes around and that this was clearly a case of cultural differences. In addition, they stated that all she did was just spoil the movie and there was nothing to make a fuss about.
How do you feel about the situation?
