“Let me tell you what’s happened to me since you last saw me,” DeGeneres said. “I’ve been crazy. Oh yeah, I got fired from show business for being tough.”

“I used to say, ‘I don’t care what people say about me.’ Now I realize I said that at the height of my popularity,” the comedian continued.

Obviously something changed, and I’m disappointed to learn that wasn’t the case. For that, I’m sorry,” DeGeneres wrote in the letter. “Anyone who knows me knows that this is the exact opposite of what I believe in and what I would have hoped for our show.”
