A compilation video featuring embattled daytime talk show host Ellen Degeneres mocking Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara on multiple occasions is currently going viral.

The eye-opening video was first uploaded to TikTok by user @elenag245 and quickly made its way over to Twitter, where it’s being widely shared.

In it, @elenag245 splices together several clips of Ellen making fun of Vergara’s accent.

“Ellen makes fun of Sofia’s accent, but not in a funny way, in a very cringeworthy way, and it’s very consistent,” @elenag245 explains.

In one of the clips, Ellen tells Vergara “after ten years, your accent has gotten worse!” In another, she makes fun of the way Vergara pronounces certain words. And in another, she jokes about teaching Vergara English.

For the most part, Vergara takes the jokes in stride, although there are times when she clearly looks uncomfortable as everyone in the studio laughs at her.

“I feel like if anyone said those things in real life settings, no one would be laughing,” @elenag245 concludes. “Just because you don’t understand the accent doesn’t mean the person doesn’t speak English.”



The video has ignited quite a response on Twitter…
