Before their controversial interview, Ellen was most known for her incessant dancing, pranking celebrities, giving cash to charities, interviewing small children, and for lending her voice to a perpetually confused big blue fish.
Oh, and for having her '90s sitcom Ellen cancelled after she came out as gay.
But these days, Ellen is forever tainted by a five-minute interview. An interview with Dakota Johnson about the actor's 30th birthday party; or, more specifically, Ellen's insistence that she wasn't invited to the actor's 30th birthday party.
Watch the now-infamous chat below. Post continues after video.
Ellen invited Dakota to appear on The Ellen Show on November 27, 2019, to promote her then-upcoming film The Peanut Butter Falcon.
"You turned 30," Ellen innocently began. "How was the party? I wasn't invited."
This was the wrong thing to say to Dakota Johnson.
"Actually, no – that's not the truth, Ellen," she sniped back playfully.
