Dakota Johnson Has Politely Destroyed Ellen, And Now Everybody Loves Her
"I have never before seen someone handle Ellen’s bs so calmly."
The internet have decided to stan Dakota Johnson after she shut down Ellen Degeneres on her own damn show.
A clip from Dakota Johnson’s most recent Ellen interview has gone viral for the awkward, tense energy between the pair.
The point of contention came from Ellen claiming that Dakota failed to send Ellen an invite to her 30th birthday party. But Dakota shut Ms. Ellen down fast, explaining that she definitely did invite her.

“Ellen, you were invited. Last time I was on the show last year, you gave me a bunch of shit about not inviting you but I didn’t even know you wanted to be invited,” Dakota said.
The conversation got awkward as the pair went back and forth about the invite and whether Ellen even liked Dakota at all. “Of course I like you. You knew I liked you,” Ellen scrambled. “You’ve been on the show many times and don’t I show… like?”
After Dakota told Ellen to ask her producers to confirm an invite did come her way, Ellen remembered. “Oh yeah, I had that thing,” Ellen said after her producers reminded her that she was out of town that weekend.
So, Why Was Ellen Busy That Weekend?
After the clip was uploaded, people started to piece all the information together. Turns out that little “thing” Ellen had out of town looks to be that Dallas Cowboys game with George W. Bush.
The infamous game took place on October 6 in Texas, while Dakota’s 30th birthday bash happened in Malibu that very same weekend. This discovery sent the internet into overdrive, with people claiming that Dakota’s shutdown was made just that much sweeter by the revelation.
the cherry on top gag of this mess is that ellen was at the football game with george w bush that weekend lmaoooooooo gotta go! https://t.co/l2FRNRUG58

Dakota, The New Queen Of The Internet
The interview made people begin to question Ellen’s style of interviewing. Calling the talkshow host “confrontational” and “fake”, some noted that Ellen isn’t as sweet as she projects herself to be.
Ellen has always been oddly confrontational. She’s like the Jimmy Kimmel of daytime tv. Treats her rudeness towards guests as her standup act. Gets kinda old real quick. But she’s insanely rich so who’s gonna to tell her no?

I’m glad someone is FINALLY calling Ellen out for her her BS. She’s always struck me as fake & mean. If you notice the “pranks” on her show they all have a hint of cruelty. & one episode where she had a secret camera set up for the sole purpose of shaming some audience members

Others decided to focus on Dakota – and reminded everyone that Dakota refuses to take any shit from any talk show host, including Jimmy Fallon.
But remember when Dakota johnson called out Jimmy fallon? 😂 iconic pic.twitter.com/7dBIH6HwFF

Following the events from the fateful The Ellen Show episode, a new wave of Dakota Johnson fans have appeared.
Dakota Johnson is the best possible result of nepotism in that she's actually talented AND her upbringing as the child of A-List celebrities means she is afraid of absolutely no one
