The Staff Of ‘Ellen DeGeneres Show’ Respond To Claims Of Toxic Work Environment

Following the numerous accusation to Ellen DeGeneres of the attitudes towards employees, BuzzFeed News spoke to employees on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ and submitted the reports to the public.

As might be remembered, the employees had claimed that they faced racism and intimidation. The crew members had also stated that they were “left in the dark” regarding payments.

According to news released by BuzzFeed News, one current and ten former employees blamed the producers and managers about the issue, what’s more, they said that Ellen needs to take more responsibility. One of them said:

“If she (Ellen) wants to have her own show and have her name on the show title, she needs to be more involved to see what’s going on. I think the executive producers surround her and tell her, ‘Things are going great, everybody’s happy,’ and she just believes that, but it’s her responsibility to go beyond that.”

Another one added:

“That ‘be kind’ bulls**t only happens when the cameras are on. It’s all for Show. I know they give money to people and help them out, but it’s for show.”

Then, a black woman stated that she experienced racist actions and microaggressions throughout all the time she worked for the show. She said:

“Whenever I brought up an issue to my white male boss, he would bring up some random story about some random Black friend that he had and how they managed to get over stuff. He would use his Black friend as some way to say, ‘I understand your struggle.’ But it was all performative bulls**t.”

The same employee continued as follows:

 “I feel angry about the way I was treated, and I am always going to stand up for Black, Indigenous, Latino, and Asian people, regardless if they’re around. I can’t say anything. I’m not going to stop talking.”

As a response, executive producers of the show made the following statement:

“Over the course of nearly two decades, 3,000 episodes, and employing over 1,000 staff members, we have strived to create an open, safe, and inclusive work environment. We are truly heartbroken and sorry to learn that even one person in our production family has had a negative experience. It’s not who we are and not who we strive to be, and not the mission Ellen has set for us. For the record, the day to day responsibility of The Ellen Show is completely on us. We take all of this very seriously and we realize, as many in the world are learning, that we need to do better, are committed to do better, and we will do better.”
