A stunning announcement just dropped about Ellen DeGeneres — the popular daytime talk show host — and millions of fans are shocked. The Emmy-award winning program could be in big trouble.
“The Ellen DeGeneres Show is under internal investigation by corporate parent WarnerMedia following accusations that executives allowed a hostile work environment to fester for years,” reported Breitbart News this week.
The situation has continued to evolve, however, the controversy initially kicked off when former employees accused the show of being toxic behind the scenes. “That ‘be kind’ bull**** only happens when the cameras are on,” said one of the accusers.
Eventually, the pressure became too much and WarnerMedia decided to launch an internal investigation into the claims. While results are expected in the near future, DeGeneres herself has remained quiet on the matter.
It is impossible to know whether she was aware of employee discontent, given her extraordinarily busy schedule. But if the accusations are true, it goes to show that even a superstar like DeGeneres should be more involved in her work environment.
There is also the possibility that she knew before any of these accusations came to light, which would make her complicit in employee mistreatment. But this is all conjecture at the moment and the facts need to be allowed to come out first.
