The news comes just days after her reported split from Riverdale co-star, Cole Sprouse. The couple reportedly called it quits for the second time last month — eight months after rekindling their romance in September 2019. News of the breakup came on May 25 after weeks of speculation due to Lili and Cole, 27, quarantining separately during the COVID-19 pandemic. The actor is currently staying with his Riverdale co-star, KJ Apa amid the global health crisis, his twin brother, Dylan Sprouse recently revealed in a Zoom interview with Entertainment Tonight on May 27.

Fans were also speculating that the pair had split back in May after Skeet Ulrich, who plays Cole’s father on Riverdale, spoke about the couple in the past tense during an Instagram Live.

“I think they were a very cute couple,” Skeet, who was joined by his girlfriend, Megan Blake Irwin, said. She chimed in, adding, “They were a very cute couple. They’re both beautiful people.”

Even before Skeet and Megan’s live, Lili and Cole were forced to address breakup rumors back in March when Cole was seen leaving a vehicle with model Kaia Gerber, 18, in Los Angeles. Cole and Lili were quick to shut down cheating speculation when critics came for him on social media.

Cole and Lili met in 2016 on the set of the CW’s hit series, Riverdale, in which they play love interests Jughead Jones and Betty Cooper. They sparked romance rumors in the summer of 2017, and later made their red-carpet debut as a couple at the Met Gala in New York City in May 2018. Cole and Lili have not addressed or confirmed reports that they’ve split.

Ellen DeGeneres is receiving backlash for a since-deleted tweet using the term ‘people of color’ | Daily Mail Online

Ellen DeGeneres is facing criticism on social media after posting and subsequently deleting a tweet about the worldwide protests after the killing of George Floyd

Immediately social media users flocked to Twitter to point out her message was ‘tone-deaf’ and hypocritical, as many pointed to her controversial friendship with George W. Bush. 

‘Like so many of you, I am angry and I am sad,’ DeGeneres wrote, according to screenshots of her since-deleted post on Saturday. ‘People of color in this country have faced injustice for far too long. For things to change, things must change.’  

Controversial: Ellen DeGeneres is facing criticism on social media after posting and subsequently deleting a tweet about the worldwide protests after the killing of George Floyd

The 62-year-old comedian added: ‘We must commit ourselves to this change with conviction and love,’ the message read.

Many questioned her decision to shy away from specifically addressing the black community, with one of her followers firing, ‘Not people of color. George Floyd was black. Why are being so cautious? Seriously?’ 

‘I still find it funny how Ellen Degeneres, a woman who is famous for boastfully signing life-size checks to random people on her show, can’t even post a screenshot on the internet of her donating money in support of Black lives,’ another chimed in.

Backlash: Immediately social media users flocked to Twitter to point out her message was ‘tone-deaf’ and ‘hypocritical,’ as many pointed to her controversial friendship with George W. Bush

After Ellen deleted her first tweet, she posted two new messages about donating to  the George Floyd Memorial Fund, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Black Lives Matter and the ACLU. 

People were still unhappy, as they continued to express their distain for hanging out with the former Republican president, who passed and upheld anti-LGBT policies for years. 

Additionally, she was slammed for cutting her employees wages by ‘60% during the pandemic’ and some pointed to the ongoing rumors of her behind-the-scenes bad behavior. 

Damage control: After deleting her first tweet, she posted two new messages about donating to to the George Floyd Memorial Fund, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Black Lives Matter and the ACLU.

Last month, she was reportedly ‘at the end of her rope’ over allegations that she is unkind and mistreats staffers. 

At the time, a former Ellen DeGeneres show staffer claimed the presenter ‘isn’t always nice’ and another told the New York Post: ‘The stories are all true!’

They said: ‘Is she always nice? No. It irritates me that people think she’s all sweetness and light and she gets away with it.’ 

Public perception: Last month, she was reportedly ‘at the end of her rope’ over allegations that she is unkind and mistreats staffers

The stories about Ellen started circulating after comic Kevin T. Porter sent out a tweet in March urging people to message him ‘the most insane stories [they’ve] heard’ about Ellen in an effort to raise money for the Los Angeles Food Bank.

Porter was flooded with written accounts by various Twitter users who claimed to have had less than savory interactions with Ellen – who he labeled as ‘notoriously one of the meanest people alive’ – over the years.

Then in early April, Ellen was slammed on social media for cracking a joke on her daytime chat show that being home all the time during the COVID-19 pandemic was akin to being behind bars.

Unhappy staff: Crew members claim they finally heard from production executives last month, when they were told to expect a 60per cent pay decrease, even while the show continues airing

At the time, Variety also reported that the main stage crew for her show – roughly 20 people – received ‘no communication’ about issues like pay and working hours for over a month.   

The show’s crew were outraged over her decision to hire a non-union tech company to help DeGeneres broadcast from home, while allegedly reducing the salaries of the show’s usual union team by 60 percent amid the coronavirus lockdown. 

Meanwhile, Ellen herself is said to have a $77million per year contract for her talk show. Her total net worth is estimated to be a whopping $330million.

EVE: My Interracial Marriage Hit A Rough Patch Because Of BLM Protests! – MTO News

Female rapper turned talk show host Eve is claiming that the rise in Black Lives Matter protests around the country is having an impact on her marriage. Eve, who is Black, is married to a White man.

And it appears that she and her husband, British millionaire Maximillian Cooper, aren’t on the same page when it comes to race relations.

In an upcoming episode of “The Talk” Eve says the protests following the murder of George Floyd have sparked some much needed but uncomfortable conversations between her and her husband Max Cooper. “The Talk @ Home” host opened up in a conversation that was filmed Monday saying,

“I am in an interracial relationship. I am having some of the most difficult and uncomfortable conversations I think I’ve ever had, and vice-versa with my husband. But, at the same time, it’s a beautiful thing, because…I don’t know his life through his eyes. He doesn’t know my life through my eyes. All he can do is try to understand and try to ask the questions, and he wants to understand…but we have to be okay with being uncomfortable so that we can get to a solution.”

Twitter seems to not be too happy with Eve’s comments:
