After landing a new episode of the talk show, Ellen DeGeneres has been criticized over her joke about quarantine time on social media.

In the time of lockdown, Ellen DeGeneres returns to the screen with her chat show named The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Due to the dangerous outbreak of COVID-19, the show's schedule was postponed and two days ago, it made a stellar comeback and promises to release the coming episodes. Taking to Twitter, the TV host shared a tweet with a heartwarming message that read:

"I'm thinking of you and sending love to you all. There's no better way for me to do that than from my show."

Joining the latest episode of the show, dancer Stephen Boss was the celeb guest. He talked about what he did during the quarantine time with fans. Watch the full show here:

It would be a great presentation of the TV show for fans over the world if Ellen didn't crack the game. She has been widely known for her sense of humor and upbeat sarcasm making everyone burst into laugh. But this time, it doesn't work and even bites her. She joked:

"This is like being in jail. It's mostly because I've been wearing the same clothes for ten days and everyone in here is gay. The jokes that I have."
