62-year-old ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ host Ellen DeGeneres is addressing all the allegations of EVIL leveraged against her! … In a new six-minute-video Ellen is addressing the rumors that she created a toxic work environment on the set of her famous talk-show; through both her personal behavior and that of her senior staff.
Some of the allegations leveraged against Ellen include her not allowing her subordinates to make eye-contact with her, to her trying to get a waitress fired over her nail-polish; and now she responds saying: “As you may have heard, this summer there were allegations of a toxic work environment at our show. And then there was an investigation. I learned that things happened here that never should have happened…I take that very seriously. I’m so sorry to the people who were effected.”
Ellen continues: “I know that I am in a position of privilege and power. I take responsibility for what happens at my show….We have had a lot of conversations the last few weeks…we have made the necessary changes. Today, we are starting a new chapter. There were also articles in the press and on social media that said who I am not who I appear to be on TV…Being known as the ‘Be Kind’ lady is a tricky position to be in. The truth is, I am that person that you see on TV. I am also a lot of other things. Sometimes I get sad, I get mad, I get anxious, I get frustrated, I get impatient. I am working on all of that. I am a work in progress. I don’t think I’m that good [of an actress] that I could come out here every day for 17 years and fool you. This is me. And my intention is to always be the best person I can be. And if I’ve ever let someone down, if I’ve ever hurt their feelings, I am so sorry for that…” Watch Ellen’s apology below and let us know: IS THE DAMAGE DONE? IS THERE ANY TURNING BACK FOR ELLEN?
