After many many reports of mistreatment, racism, and intimidation, The Ellen Show is now under investigation by Warner Media.
Warner Media’s employee relations group will be interviewing current and former staff members to find out their experiences with the show.
This stems from reports by employees of racist behavior, mistaking two black female employees due to having similar hairstyles. Microagressions to jokes that were not kind. As well as criticism from executive producer Ed Glavin.
Glavin and fellow executive producers Andy Lassner and Mary Connelly addressed the allegations in a joint statement to Buzzfeed.
“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,” the group said. “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.”
I guess Ellen and her staff don’t actually believe or follow what she says every show. “Be kind to one another.”
