Tom Cruise branded the 'new Ellen DeGeneres' after his 'psychotic' Mission Impossible Covid rant

TOM Cruise has been likened to Ellen DeGeneres after he unleashed a furious rant at his Mission Impossible crew over Covid rules.

Ellen, 62, faced scandal over the summer when several staffers accused her show of fostering a "toxic" working environment.

And critics have now claimed Tom is "the new Ellen" after he was heard screaming at two staffers for not respecting social distancing guidelines.

In The Sun’s exclusive audio tape, the Hollywood megastar is heard calling the producers "motherf**kers" and saying they were "f**king gone".

He launched into the expletive-laden rant after they were caught standing less than a meter away while looking at a monitor, despite both wearing masks.

People flocked to social media to claim Tom's behavior is "toxic", drawing comparisons to the allegations leveled against Ellen.

"More people should quit. Tom Cruise is toxic like Ellen," one wrote.

"Tom Cruise is a lunatic add him to he Ellen list already and be done with it," another added.

A third user quipped sarcastically: "It's a bold choice having Ellen DeGeneres replace Tom Cruise in the next Mission Impossible movie. She's really leaning into this whole new bad girl image."

Tom's rant has gone viral, as he screamed profanities at crew members for putting the set into jeopardy.

The Golden Globe-winning star was heard yelling: “If I see you do it again, you’re f**king gone. And if anyone in this crew does it, that’s it – and you too and you too. And you, don’t you ever f**king do it again!"

Tom has allegedly worked hard to keep filming going by following all the proper protocols after several Covid setbacks have occurred during the shooting process.

He continued: "They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us. We are creating thousands of jobs, you motherf***ers.

“That’s it. No apologies. You can tell it to the people that are losing their f***ing homes because our industry is shut down.”

Ellen, meanwhile, was hit with multiple allegations of "racism, fear and intimidation" behind the scenes of her daytime talk show.

Since the scandal struck, people have come forward with claims about her behavior, including Australian radio producer Neil Breen, who claimed he was told "not to look at her or speak to her".

Ellen later blamed her "introverted" personality on allegations about her "mean" demeanor.

In Tom's case, an insider reported that another rant could happen in the future, saying: “The first outburst was big but things haven’t calmed since.

"Tension has been building for months and this was the final straw. Since it became public there has been more anger and several staff have walked."

Leah Remini called Tom's tirade "psychotic" and claimed it was all a "Scientology publicity stunt".

The former Scientologist told "I would bet that Tom had this rant written for him and had his Scientology assistant record and release it.

"Hearing a rich actor with enormous power address his crew in this way is a sign of weakness and a deeply troubled person."

The King of Queens star added: "His mental state is showing. Tom seems to think that Hollywood is incapable of making films without his help.

"Saying such a thing indicates the godlike figure Tom believes he is, and what he is told by Scientology."
