Ryan Phillippe pauses jog for dig at Ellen DeGeneres rumors

Ryan Phillippe isn’t letting Ellen DeGeneres off the hook.

The 46-year-old “Shooter” star posted a still of himself mid-run Saturday to his Instagram story, squinting in front of a billboard promoting “The Ellen Degeneres Show.”

“And remember to be kind …” he captioned the picture in a seemingly mocking flowery script — referencing DeGeneres’ catchphrase on the show — before adding “Wait” in a starker font.

Phillippe has not graced “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” since 2011, Us Weekly reports, going on to note that the actor’s ex-wife, Reese Witherspoon, is one of DeGeneres’ close friends and was a guest on the show in March.

Aside from a new haircut, DeGeneres, 62, hasn’t recently generated headlines on the level of reports about the allegedly toxic environment she fosters on her show that punctured her feel-good empire earlier this year.

Her apology for the alleged behavior wasn’t particularly well-received — at least by several former employees — though it didn’t seem to make a difference to viewers: Her show’s September return notched her highest premiere ratings since 2016.
