For instance, Ellen previously released a memo to employees during the investigation. Part of it read, “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.”
