Here's Why Big Brother Fans Think Julie Chen Is Shading Ellen DeGeneres With Her Sign-Off

On Thursday night's episode of Big Brother Julie Chen reminded fans of the golden rule, seemingly making a dig at Ellen DeGeneres and the controversy around her talk show.

Could Julie Chen's words of wisdom actually be a thinly-veiled insult to Ellen DeGeneres?

Well, ask any viewer of the Aug. 13 episode of Big Brother All Stars  and they'd probably say yes. 

As fans of the series know, the hostess typically ends the show by saying, "From outside the Big Brother house, I'm Julie Chen. Goodnight."

But on Thursday, the former The Talk host strayed from script in a very noticeable way. She said, "From outside the Big Brother All Stars house, I'm Julie Chen-Moonves, and remember the golden rule: 'Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.' Goodnight."

Cue the side-eye. 

Fans were quick to note that this is too similar to Ellen's sign-off, in which she says, "Be kind to one another," to be a mere coincidence. One Twitter user said, "julie's weird ass sign off at the end? she's coming for the ellen gig omg."

Others on social media noted she made a similar remark last week, ending with a reminder to "be good to one another."

Shortly after, in a letter addressed to her staff, Ellen apologized for these claims, acknowledging that what allegedly took place behind the scenes is the "opposite of what I believe." 

"That will now change and I'm committed to ensuring this does not happen again," she promised.
