Fans are calling out Ellen DeGeneres for scaring Kim Kardashian off the show with a fake spider: ‘She’s a goddamn bully’

Kim Kardashian made a quick goodbye to That Ellen DeGeneres Show after the presenter tried to cure her fear of spiders.

During Kardashian’s appearance on Wednesday (April 13) on the show, DeGeneres released a plastic animal box that she told her guest contained a live spider.

Kardashian has long been open about her arachnophobia, and burst into tears on a 2007 episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians after her mother, Kris Jenner, spotted a spider on her shoulder while on vacation in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

“You don’t do this to me, I’ll never get over this,” Kardashian told DeGeneres when the host showed her the box on the show.

“It’s not loose, it’s not loose spider,” DeGeneres assured her as Kardashian, visibly distressed, left her seat and yelled, “No! no no no We’ve been through this before.”

Despite her guest’s distress, DeGeneres lifted the lid off the box, which was actually empty, and pretended to hold the spider before throwing it at Kardashian, who screamed and ran off the stage. “It’s not real!” yelled DeGeneres laughing.

While DeGeneres and live studio audiences found the prank hilarious, fans on social media criticized the talk show host for exploiting Kardashian’s genuine phobia.

“THAT is EXACTLY why I fucking despise Ellen DeGeneres!!” one fan wrote. “She’s a goddamn bully who gets her rock from torturing guests out of fear. There’s nothing funny about being terrorized. I hate her since I saw her throw a spider at Emma Stone YEARS ago. This is #trauma.”

“Ellen scaring Kim with a spider when she repeatedly said no is the least funny thing ever,” wrote another.

“WHY?? Why are you doing this? How is it relevant?” read another post.

The Independent has reached out to DeGeneres representatives for comment.

The cruel prank is coming ellen‘s 19th and final season following a behind-the-scenes investigation into the toxicity allegations.

DeGeneres herself has been accused of being mean to restaurant workers and handymen, tipping, asking people not to look directly at her, and taking her eyes off the ball all while allegedly causing sexual misconduct and bullying on her set.
