Emily Ratajkowski has slammed an Ellen DeGeneres episode in which she quizzed Taylor Swift on her celebrity boyfriends.
A clip went of the segment went viral on TikTok and once again the TV host is under fire for her treatment of her guests.
In the 2012 interview, DeGeneres starts digging into Swift, implicating that she's been dating Zac Efron despite her having to repeatedly say otherwise.
The host says, "You were here with your boyfriend Zac Efron last time," to which the singer replies, "Erm, we actually never dated."
"Yes you did," says DeGeneres, causing the audience to burst out laughing.
Despite the clear frustration on Swift's face as she has to continually defend herself, the host keeps suggesting that she did date the actor while poking fun at her.
This exchange leads on to a quiz in which DeGeneres shows a slideshow of photos showing Swift with various celebrities.
The Shake It Off star was given a bell and told to ring it if she's dated the man on the screen, with the host suggesting she wants to find out the person who inspired the song We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.
Swift is clearly uncomfortable throughout as pictures of her with everyone from Danny Devito to Justin Bieber come up.
Eventually, DeGeneres takes hold of the bell and begins ringing it on every photo.
Ratajkowski, who described the quiz as 'f***ed up', said: "She’s literally begging her to stop."
The clip Ratajkowski commented on was stitched with a 2019 interview with Zane Lowe in which Swift alluded to the interview and how uncomfortable it made her feel.
She says: "When I was 23 and people were were kind of reducing me to making slideshows of my dating life and putting people in there that I'd sat next to at a party once, and deciding that my songwriting was like a trick rather than a skill and a craft.
"It's a way to take a woman who's doing her job and succeeding at doing her job and making things and in a way it's figuring out how to completely minimise that skill."
Alongside Ratajkowski, plenty of others have slammed the host and the show, with one person commenting: "You can literally hear in her voice how upset she is."
"I think the sentence 'I don't wanna do it' should've been more than enough," said another, while a third added, "She was about to cry and they just laughed at her."
A fourth chimed in: "Wow. Ellen has always has such a mean streak."
UNILAD has contacted a rep for Ellen DeGeneres for comment.
