Ellen DeGeneres Apologises Following Damning Investigation

Published: Friday 31st Jul 2020 by David

Ellen DeGeneres has apologised to members of her staff and the general public after WarnerMedia placed a magnifying glass over her hit TV show.

Full story below…

WarnerMedia launched an investigation into ‘The Ellen Show’ after a number of its employees stepped forward to claim that they had been mistreated by producers.

Several ex-staffers, all speaking anonymously, accused executive producer Kevin Leman behaving inappropriately at a company party in 2013 and in May 2017. Almost a dozen former workers said Leman would make sexually explicit comments in the office regularly, frequently toward lower-level and younger employees.

Now Ellen has released a statement she hopes will stand as the first step towards rebuilding what many are calling a toxic and broken culture.

 

She sent this note to her employees.

 

Hey everybody – it’s Ellen. 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. Obviously, something changed, and I am disappointed to learn that this has not been the case. And for that, I am sorry. Anyone who knows me knows it’s the opposite of what I believe and what I hoped for our show.

I could not have the success I’ve had without all of your contributions. My name is on the show and everything we do and I take responsibility for that. Alongside Warner Bros, we immediately began an internal investigation and we are taking steps, together, to correct the issues. As we’ve grown exponentially, I’ve not been able to stay on top of everything and relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I’d want them done. Clearly some didn’t. That will now change and I’m committed to ensuring this does not happen again.

I’m also learning that people who work with me and for me are speaking on my behalf and misrepresenting who I am and that has to stop. As someone who was judged and nearly lost everything for just being who I am, I truly understand and have deep compassion for those being looked at differently, or treated unfairly, not equal, or – worse – disregarded. To think that any one of you felt that way is awful to me.

It’s been way too long, but we’re finally having conversations about fairness and justice. 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. I promise to do my part in continuing to push myself and everyone around me to learn and grow. It’s important to me and to Warner Bros. that everyone who has something to say can speak up and feels safe doing so.

I am so proud of the work we do and the fun and joy we all help put out in the world. I want everyone at home to love our show and I want everyone who makes it to love working on it. Again, I’m so sorry to anyone who didn’t have that experience. If not for COVID, I’d have done this in person, and I can’t wait to be back on our stage and see you all then.

Stay safe and healthy.

Love,

Ellen

    Lol this b**** is unbelievable, basically she’s blaming it on her team because she can’t oversee everything.

    What about her own behavior ? How about you address that ? She’s such a coward.

    Boy bye! I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re the ringleader and spearheading the disgusting behavior. We’re expected to believe you knew NOTHING?! Really? Once again, not bye! Cancel the show please.
