As the fallout over "The Ellen Show" continues, rumors have circulated the host Ellen DeGeneres wants to quit her lucrative gig and a new report from the British tabloid The Sun claims late night show host James Corden is "in line" to take over for the out comedian.

Corden, who hosts the "Late Late Show," might "be the shock winner after dozens of employees accused the $50 million-a-year presenter of turning a blind eye to racism, bullying and sexual harassment on her hit daytime show," The Sun wrote. Sources told the paper that Corden has long been seen as DeGeneres' "long term successor" even before the latest scandal erupted.

Despite rumors that she wants to quit, it was recently reported DeGeneres will be returning to work. Nevertheless, Twitter was quick to react to the rumors of Corden replacing DeGeneres. Find the best responses below.
