YouTube Star NikkieTutorials Continues to Speak Negatively of Her 'Ellen' Show Experience

YouTube star NikkieTutorials is continuing to speak out about the negative experience she had while appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show back in January.

The 26-year-old beauty guru was on the talk show to open up about coming out as transgender and she previously has said that Ellen never greeted her before the interview and that the host was “cold” and “distant.”

Nikkie opened up more during an interview with &C Magazine (via Pop Crave).

“Maybe I’m being naive, but I expected them to welcome me with confetti… ‘Welcome to the Ellen DeGeneres Show!’ But instead I got greeted by an angry intern, who was a bit overworked. I expected a Disney show, but I got a Teletubbies After Dark,” Nikkie said. “Every guest at Ellen had a private toilet, but I didn’t. I couldn’t even use the closest toilet to me, because it was reserved for the Jonas Brothers… They were allowed, I wasn’t, I thought. Even though looking back, my interview got 8 million views, while theirs only got 2 million. Ha!”

Nikkie added, “For people who didn’t know me, it was a good summary of my story. But the people who did know me expected more. ‘I should’ve just went on Eva Jinek,’ I thought to myself.”

She says that after being on the show, she thought to herself, “Don’t meet your idols.”
