Old clip of Ellen pressuring Taylor Swift resurfaced after a TikToker said Swift ‘deserves an apology’ – A clip of Ellen DeGeneres quizzing Taylor Swift about her dating life has gone viral after a TikToker posted the video suggesting Swift deserved an apology.
In the segment, from a 2012 episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” DeGeneres tries to get Swift to talk about the men she has dated.
“You were here with your boyfriend Zac Efron last time, how’s he doing?” DeGeneres asked Swift, to which Swift responded they “never dated,” while DeGeneres insists, “Yes you did, why do you deny it?”
DeGeneres then shows pictures of men on a screen, hands Swift a bell, and asks her to ring it when she sees the person who inspired her song “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” Swift initially refuses, saying the secret behind the song’s meaning is the “one shred of dignity I have left,” but DeGeneres continues on, as Swift says, “Do you know how bad this makes me feel?” and insists she doesn’t want to continue with the segment.
TikToker Nya Johnson shared the video, saying Swift “deserves an apology” for how she was treated on the show.
“Do u think Ellen thrives off of making guest uncomfortable?” Johnson wrote in the caption. The TikTok has received 4.8 million views and 1.2 million likes so far. It generated a discussion in the comments about how the situation could have been “humiliating” for Swift, and the concept of pushing people’s boundaries for the sake of entertainment.
