Nikkie Tutorials is a beauty guru who rose to popularity for doing amazing makeup transformations on Youtube. She was recently caught in a scandal that forced her to reveal that she is transgender. After the story went positively viral, she was invited to The Ellen Show where the hostess seemed proud of her journey — but everything is not as it seems.
Nikkie recently revealed that her experience on the talk show was less than friendly. Although Ellen appeared to be warm and welcoming (as she always does), Nikkie claims that she didn’t really bother to make her feel comfortable off camera.
The Dutch vlogger appeared on a talk show last month in the Netherlands called De Wereld Draait Door.
When asked about her experience with Degeneres, she hinted that the comedian was rude.
‘Let me say that there’s a big difference between this show and Ellen DeGeneres, and I’m saying that in favor of this show. It’s nice that you say ‘hi’ before the show. She didn’t.’
She agreed with the host who asked if Ellen was cold and distant.
She also reflected: ‘It was a huge honor to be on that stage with Ellen, but it wasn’t as nice as I thought.’
This comes after the makeup expert refused to be blackmailed by someone who threatened to reveal that she was transgender. Instead of giving in to the coward’s demands, she made a coming out video that inspired nearly everyone who watched it.
Not only did her following increase, but she also got more international attention than ever before. There’s no doubt if this will open even more doors for the brave woman.
However, to hear that her experience at The Ellen Show was anything less than genuine was disappointing to fans of Ellen and Nikkie alike.
Hopefully, the talk show host was just having an off day.
