Ellen DeGeneres, 62, may not have a talk-show to return to soon!
Current and former employees of ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ are coming forward claiming that producers and executives at the show have created a “toxic work environment” on-set and with staff. Ellen too has been slammed by past guests, including Youtube-r Nikki de Jager who called Ellen “cold and distant.” Staff members now claim that they are not allowed to speak to Ellen directly, and say some employees were favored by producers while others weren’t.
Allegations were brought forth against ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’s three executive producers: Ed Glavin, Mary Connelly, and Andy Lassner. One staff member reveals: “People focus on rumors about how Ellen is mean and everything like that, but that’s not the problem. The issue is these three executive producers running the show who are in charge of all these people [and] who make the culture and are putting out this feeling of bullying and being mean. They feel that everybody who works at The Ellen Show is lucky to work there: ‘So if you have a problem, you should leave because we’ll hire someone else because everybody wants to work here.'” Another Black staff member claims that she was “reprimanded” when she asked for a raise and experienced “microaggressions” on a daily basis…She says: “I feel like I’m not alone in this. We all feel this. We’ve been feeling this way, but I’ve been too afraid to say anything because everyone knows what happens when you say something as a Black person. You’re blacklisted…” Let us know: WILL THE ELLEN DEGENERES SHOW EVER BE THE SAME AGAIN? DO YOU THINK SHE’S MEAN AND TOXIC?
