Hollywood stars and employees accused talk show host of having a toxic work environment.

Ellen DeGeneres Program drops 38% in the ranks as viewership takes a nosedive following poisonous workplace scandal

The Ellen DeGeneres Show in September dropped 38% in the scores as compared to in 2019. The huge decrease in viewership shows that her recent poisonous office allegations has pissed off followers. The 62-year-old celebrity asked forgiveness on-air throughout her 18th season opener saying “I take responsibility for what happens at my show”.

What should employers do to ensure a safe and respectful workplace for all employees?

Ellen DeGeneres is a well-known television personality and comedian, who has garnered a lot of admiration and respect over the years for her wit and humor. However, recent reports suggest that Ellen has been called out by her employees for creating a toxic work environment.

According to multiple sources, Ellen’s show has been plagued by allegations of racism, sexism, and workplace harassment. It is said that some employees have been subjected to bullying and intimidation by senior staff members, while others have endured micro-aggressions and discriminatory behavior.

The allegations of a toxic work environment at The Ellen DeGeneres Show first surfaced in April 2020, when Variety ran a report on the issue. The article quoted various current and former employees, who spoke about their experiences of working on the show.

Some of the employees revealed that they had been subjected to racist comments, while others claimed they had been fired for taking medical leave or attending funerals. There were also allegations of sexual misconduct by some senior staff members.

Following the publication of the article, Ellen issued a statement apologizing to her employees for the “stressful and unprofessional” environment that they had to endure. She promised to take steps to ensure that such incidents would not happen in the future.

However, the controversy did not die down even after Ellen’s apology. In fact, it only intensified with more employees, both former and current, coming forward with their own stories of abuse and mistreatment.

One of the most shocking revelations came from a former bodyguard of Ellen, who claimed that she was “cold and demeaning” towards him and other members of her security detail. He also alleged that Ellen’s wife Portia de Rossi was equally rude and disrespectful to the staff.

As the allegations continued to pile up, Ellen finally addressed the issue on her show in September 2020. She apologized again to her staff and took responsibility for the toxic work environment that had been created. She also promised to make changes to ensure a safe and respectful workplace.

While Ellen’s apology was welcomed by many, there were others who felt that it was too little too late. Some employees felt that the apology was insincere and that it came only after the show had garnered negative press.

The issue of a toxic work environment is a serious one, and no one should have to endure it in their workplace. It is commendable that Ellen has now taken responsibility for the situation and has promised to make changes. However, the damage has already been done, and it remains to be seen whether Ellen will be able to regain the trust and respect of her employees and viewers.

In conclusion, the allegations of a toxic work environment at The Ellen DeGeneres Show have been a wake-up call to the entertainment industry. It has highlighted the importance of creating a safe and respectful workplace where everyone is treated with dignity and equality. We can only hope that Ellen’s apology and promises of change will result in a positive outcome for her employees and create a better working environment for all.
