NikkieTutorials said that Ellen DeGeneres wouldn’t even shake her hand after she opened up about being transgender on her show.
Youtube make-up guru NikkieTutorials has called out Ellen DeGeneres on a popular Netherlands programme De Wereld Draait Door about her experience on her US talk show.
If you don’t remember on January 13 Nikkie de Jager aka NikkieTutorials came out as trans and explained that she was blackmailed into doing so. She also explained that someone threatened to leak her story to the press. Nikkie received universal praise for her video and even went on Ellen to discuss her experience.
However, NikkieTutorials has now spoken frankly about her time on The Ellen Degeneres Show and it wasn’t positive at all.

When asked about Ellen, she laughed and said: “Well let’s just say there’s a huge difference between this show and Ellen and I’m saying that in favour of this show. It’s nice that you came and said ‘Hi’ before the show started. She didn’t.”
Nikkie added: “Ellen is just such a different world. It functions differently.”
When the host asked if Ellen was “More distant, colder?”, Nikkie replied: “A little”.
“It was a huge honour to be on that stage with Ellen but it wasn’t as nice as I thought it would be.” Nikkie continued.
She also confirmed that Ellen didn’t even shake her hand when the cameras were off after the interview.
