"Everyone was super nice, not just to me but to each other and anyone involved," he wrote.

Figueras then continued to say that he's seen DeGeneres treat people kindly both on and off of her show.

I have been patiently waiting for someone with more authority than me to speak up about what a great human being @theellenshow is. I have been very lucky to be on that show many times and I can tell you that it is a very well run machine, everyone was super nice, not just to me but to each other and anyone involved. I have seen Ellen act not just in her show but in public appearances in theaters where she is nice to absolutely everyone, the guy serving the coffee, the person in the elevator, the security guy and the owner of the venue. Everyone loves her because that is who she is. She makes the world a better place for millions of people everyday and we cannot hit her because something may have not been perfect. No one is perfect, and we cannot control everything. So I stand for you my friend and I challenge all the amazing people that know you and call you a friend to say who you are. The world has become a very dangerous place because it seems that we cannot make anything right. If I am going to be criticized for defending someone that I think deserves to be defended then so be it. We are all so scared to say what we really think and it seems that we are only relevant if we say whatever the trending social media topic is. So... We love Ellen right? @jenniferaniston @jlo @michelleobama @pink @seanhayes @ladygaga @oprah @katyperry @justintimberlake and whoever else should be on this list which is really long.

Pizza Party! See Kim and Kanye’s Daughter Chicago’s Cutest Pics

  Pizza Party! See Kim and Kanye’s Daughter Chicago’s Cutest Pics Darling daughter! Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s welcomed their baby girl Chicago in January 2018, and the camera loves her. “We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star wrote on her app at the time. Chicago weighed in at 7 pounds, 6 ounces, joining older siblings North and Saint, who were born in 2013 and 2015, respectively. While the Selfish author wanted to name her third child Mary Jo (after her grandma) or Grace, she and the Grammy winner settled on Chicago, the city that “made him,” even though it was more than a single syllable. Days after the infant’s arrival, the KKW Beauty creator opened up about her decision to hire a surrogate to carry her. “I have always been really honest about my struggles with pregnancy. Preeclampsia and placenta accreta are high-risk conditions, so when I wanted to have a third baby, doctors said that it wasn’t safe for my — or the baby’s — health to carry on my own,” the reality star wrote. “After exploring many options, Kanye and I decided to use a gestational carrier. … Since we implanted my fertilized egg in our gestational carrier, our baby is biologically mine and Kanye’s.” The E! personality hired a different surrogate to welcome her and the rapper’s fourth child, Psalm. He arrived in May 2019. While Kardashian shares many sweet shots of Chicago with her siblings, the little one also loves her cousins. Kylie Jenner welcomed daughter Stormi with her boyfriend, Travis Scott, in February 2018, followed by Khloé Kardashian’s daughter with Tristan Thompson, True, in April of that same year. Keep scrolling for a look at Chicago’s most adorable moments over the years.

"Unpopular opinion: I've worked for @TheEllenShow as a dj, for her parties, for years and she has ALWAYS been respectful and kind to me," she wrote.

When a Twitter user pointed out that she was a "celebrity guest" on the show rather than a staffer, Ronson responded, "I wasn't a celebrity guest. I was an employee. Very different. Trust me."

Someone else wrote that DeGeneres is only kind to people with a "certain stature," like Ronson, and the DJ said she "knew this was coming."

"You'd be surprised by how many people are super rude when you become someone they are writing a cheque to. It's super disappointing," she wrote.
