Ellen DeGeneres says sorry to staff amid workplace claims

At Least Ellen DeGeneres Sounds Like an Equal-Opportunity Bully

At Least Ellen DeGeneres Sounds Like an Equal-Opportunity Bully

"The behavior of her show executives has been appalling, but [Ellen] is no better". In April, Variety reported of outraged stage crew who had been kept in the dark at the start of coronavirus lockdowns, who watched as non-union crews helped the host launch her show from home.

On Friday, BuzzFeed released an article in which several former staff members claimed Leman would make sexually explicit comments and touch employees.

Warner Bros Television said in a statement that although "not all of the allegations were corroborated, we are disappointed that the primary findings of the investigation indicated some deficiencies related to the show's day-to-day management". We all have to be more mindful about the way our words and actions affect others, and I'm glad the issues at our show were brought to my attention.

"It's been way too long, but we're finally having conversations about fairness and justice", DeGeneres said, adding that she would push herself and others to "learn and grow".

The anonymous Telepictures staffer also said that Ellen "hates" coming to work, "struggles" to be nice to people and feels "utter contempt" for her viewers.

"Obviously, something changed, and I am disappointed to learn that this has not been the case", she said.

26 new cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa reported Friday
Currently, 78 people are hospitalized in Ontario due to the coronavirus , while 29 are in ICU, and 15 on a ventilator. The most recorded number of cases resulting in death still are in those involving patients over 70 years of age.

Amid WarnerMedia's internal investigation of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show", DeGeneres apologized to her staff in a Thursday e-mail, writing: "On day one of our show, I told everyone in our first meeting that The Ellen DeGeneres Show would be a place of happiness - no one would ever raise their voice, and everyone would be treated with respect".

After the letter was published, it was rumored that Ed Glavin, the executive producer who the majority of the allegations were against, was going to be fired from the show. Of course, because it's the 'Ellen Show, ' they controlled everything. Since the show appeals to a prime demographic, 18-44 year-old women, it ends up making bank for Warner Media through its advertising.

"The whole thing got watered down to, Ellen DeGeneres would do a sit-down interview, right?"

Earlier this year, the business magazine ranked DeGeneres as the twelfth-highest paid celebrity in 2020, with $84 million in annual earnings. If Ellen's audience doesn't dump her when she comes back, it's worth keeping the show on air even with the controversy. So he may just be the first to come out and say it.

The message ended with, "Stay safe and healthy" and "Love, Ellen".

This was clearly mocking the statement, in which she accepted responsibility only for not seeing the mistreatment, and not for being part of it.
