‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ is under investigation
Many articles are buzzing around where previous employees share stories of their experiences. Some of the incidents include “claims of being penalized for taking medical leave, instances of racial microaggressions, and fear of retribution for raising complaints.” Many former employees have said that Ellen is not as nice as she appears.
In addition, executive producers Ed Glavin, Mary Connelly, and Andy Lassner have previously released a statement. They released the statement after the first allegations made headlines.
The statement read, “Over the course of nearly two decades, 3,000 episodes and employing over 1000 staff members, we have strived to create an open, safe and inclusive work environment. We are truly heartbroken and sorry to learn that even one person in our production family has had a negative experience.”
It continued, “It’s not who we are and not who we strive to be, and not the mission Ellen has set for us. For the record, the day-to-day responsibility of the Ellen show is completely on us. We take all of this very seriously and we realize, as many in the world are learning, that we need to do better, are committed to do better, and we will do better.”
