The Ellen DeGeneres Show is under investigation by its parent company Warner Media after multiple complaints that the show has a “toxic work environment.”
A current member and 10 former staff members have launched complaints that they were bullied and discriminated against.
In a memo sent to the show’s staffers obtained by Variety magazine announced that Warner Media has contracted a third-party organization to conduct the investigation.
Eric Schiffer, chairman of Reputation Management consultants said the investigation could kill her career.
“She could be perpetrating one of the biggest frauds in American celebrity history,” he suggested. “There are now serious investigators looking into the allegations and if the findings are as damning as what has been reported then you could watch the ‘Ellen Show’ go boom.”
Schiffer feels that the assertions being made by the accusers are very credible and Warner Media had no choice.
“I think Ellen has been arrogant in her entire approach in dealing with the allegations and it’s crazy for her not to accept responsibility for what is happening under her leadership,” he said. “In Hollywood, the buck stops at the star’s name on the door, not at the producer level. It would be impossible for her to not know what [was] happening within her own staff.”
One former employee told BuzzFeed News that DeGeneres’s motto “be kind” was “bullsh**.”
“That ‘be kind’ bullsh** 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.”
Buzzfeed News reported that the former employees blamed the executive producers and senior managers for the “day-to-day toxicity.” But, as one former employee said Ellen’s name is on the show and she needs to take responsibility for the environment.
What is coming out about the Ellen DeGeneres show proves that it’s really white liberals that are racist. Here’s a great example from the Buzzfeed news report:
A Black woman who used to work on The Ellen DeGeneres Show told BuzzFeed News she experienced racist comments, actions, and “microaggressions” during her year and a half as an employee. She said when she was hired, a senior-level producer told her and another Black employee, “Oh wow, you both have box braids; I hope we don’t get you confused.” And at a work party, she said, one of the main writers told her, “I’m sorry, I only know the names of the white people who work here,” and other coworkers “awkwardly laughed it off” instead of coming to her defense.
When the former employee brought up issues of race and representation on the show and asked producers not to use offensive terms like “spirit animal” in segments, her colleagues called her “the PC police.”
When she started to speak up about the discrimination, she said, all of her colleagues distanced themselves from her.
“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,” she said. “He would use his Black friend as some way to say, ‘I understand your struggle.’ But it was all performative bullsh**.”
The woman stuck around for another year until she was reprimanded for having a bad attitude. When she explained to executive producer Ed Glavin that she was being discriminated against he brushed her off. He said everything is fine and employees receive diversity and inclusion training. She left that day and never returned, she was also blacklisted and couldn’t get work.
Another former employee lost their position after they took medical leave to check into a mental health facility due to a recent suicide attempt. After receiving treatment he returned to work and learned his position was being “eliminated.”
Suppose “woke” Hollywood liberals like Ellen Degeneres are treating minorities and others like dirt…imagine that. Another fine example of liberal hypocrisy.
