Tony Okungbowa About ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show:’“I Did Experience And Feel The Toxicity Of The Environment”

Tony Okungbowa, the former resident DJ for ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ took to Instagram the other day and spoke out about his experience on the show.

Okungbowa released a photo of himself from the days he had been working as a DJ on the show and captioned it with a message to be in solidarity with former workers of the show, who accused Ellen and the management of racism, bullying, and sexual misconduct. He wrote:

“Hey Guys,

I hope you are all keeping safe out there during these trying times. I have been getting calls asking me about the Ellen Degeneres Show and I would like to address the time I spent there.”

Okungbowa continued by confirming the toxicity on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show:’

“I was on-air talent from 2003-2006 and from 2007 -2013. While I am grateful for the opportunity it afforded me, I did experience and feel the toxicity of the environment…

Then he stated that he stands with fellow former employees:

“…and I stand with my former colleagues in their quest to create a healthier and more inclusive workplace as the show moves forward.”

After all these accusations, WarnerMedia, the parent company, started a workplace investigation on the show.
