Allegations once fired up to the executive producers and managers of The Ellen DeGeneres Show soon after the apology email of the Ellen. Sexual harassment and misconduct are the allegations thrown at the show’s producers.
Last month, speculations about the toxicity in the workplace environment of Ellen’s show bombarded every news headline. The previous staff of Ellen’s production team shared in an article from Buzzfeed News that they have experienced racism, intimidation, and unequal treatment.
The allegations were pointing to the executive producers and senior managers of the show who have apologized in a joint statement with Buzzfeed News. However, even if they have apologized, the show was investigated by its parent company WarnerMedia on Monday.
And on Thursday, Degeneres sent an email to her staff apologizing for the toxicity of the environment and reassure the employees that she will do better. She apologized a week after the investigation.
The result of the investigation states that there are deficiencies in terms of the management of the show. The investigation will continue, and the WarnerMedia will interview every staff and involved person in the show.
However, hours after the email of the host was sent, another allegation fired up once again. Buzzfeed News published that the 36 employees of the show allegedly accused sexual harassment, misconduct, and groping.
The accusations were against the head writer Kevin Leman and the executive producers. Ten of the interviewed employees gave accusations about this, but Leman has denied the allegations.
Jonathan Norman, who is another executive producer of the show have been accused of attempt to perform oral sex on one of the former employees. However, the same with the head writer, Norman denies all the allegations.
The report on Thursday about the investigations stated that one of the executive producers, Ed Glavin will be leaving the show after being accused of the 47 former employees of intimidating and inflicting fear on a day-to-day basis.
