Exclusive: Ellen DeGeneres Apologizes to Staff in Letter as WarnerMedia Investigates Show | THR News

In a letter to her crew, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Ellen DeGeneres addresses the alleged workplace misconduct, which was detailed in a Buzzfeed story published earlier this month. The widely-circulated piece includes a host of former employees’ anonymous accusations of racism, intimidation, unjust termination and an overall toxic work culture, perpetuated by the show’s top producers. The report prompted an in-house investigation by Telepictures parent WarnerMedia, which is said to now be largely complete.

She didn’t apologise, she just further pushed blame onto her producers.

Is it just me who thought like this, but did she just blame the show’s problems on her staff?

People only “apologize” after getting caught 🙄. Or else you’d never hear an apology from these celebrities.

She didn't apologize. She is just going to get rid of everyone so she can start fresh. She is holding on to a lot of hate from when she wasn't excepted and unleashing it to her workers. She is blinded by her own rage and delusional. The people who reported called her out specifically

Ellen was and is DEFINITELY aware of how staff were and are treated. She’s a control freak and makes sure her producers enforce the rules with an iron fist. Numerous stories abound of guests and even journalists being told not to look at her, speak to her, smile at her unless the cameras are rolling. She’s a disgusting human being and does more damage to the LGBT community, a card she likes to play when she’s being criticised. Pathetic. Much love to the staff badly treated by this monster.

I reject her narrative that she "almost lost everything" just for being who she was. From pretty much the word jump she had been given a cookie and congratulated for "being who she was", which is probably how she ended up with a daytime talk show anyways, as opposed to an upper mid-tier stand-up comedienne like she was before she "almost lost everything". Nice try though.

She needs to be cancelled. And dropped from Warner Bros.

Ohh boooo hoooo now shes the victim. Why are most liberals filled with hate? They constantly point the fingers and blame others for there problems and self loath its sad.

I do find it interesting that a lot of the stories about Ellen are in fact about HER specific behavior towards people NOT just on the show but are in fact those who have dealt w/ HER in the public on a daily basis. So, what does she have to say to THAT? Ever since that comedian solicited negative stories about DeGeneres to raise money for the L.A. Food Bank went viral, I've read a ton of stories about her bad behavior. Only time will tell if the REAL Ellen is a truly good person & got caught-up in celebrity or she’s just a shitty fake person.

Karma is hitting Elen DeGeneres hard and all it took was a pandemic to show her true dark side.

Ellen and her show sucks . I can’t believe that horrible show employs over 1000 people . Fire Ellen. Replace with cartoons . I miss He-Man
Randy Joe
Randy Joe:
“My name is on the show and everything we do and I take responsibility for that”

At first I applauded her for taking responsibility, until I heard the rest of her comments, starting with this one:

“As we’ve grown exponentially,”

I then realized that she is taking full responsibility for the show’s success, not her wrongdoings, which she fully blames on her staff.

I think that she just sealed the doom of her show with her narcissistic, so-called “apology.”
Fit Fogey
Fit Fogey:
She’s allegedly very rude and disrespectful to her own staff. Many stories out there about her own inappropriate behavior. This looked like a big deflection job blaming other people to me.

Helena Giszter
Helena Giszter:
I think there are two things to remember here: heterophobia is just as real a thing as homophobia. Gay people are different and react different - sometimes and more often than not their "cold, offensive or sexual predatory behaviour" are not what it seems to straight people. Ellen opened up about her real intentions, it should be enough since nobody had enough guts to repeat claims to her face despite the time and the chances given.
Ken Sowinski
Ken Sowinski:
There is an obvious problem with this videos title..."Apologizes" needs to be put in quotes, an objective reading of her message clearly shows that she offered no actual "apology". She pushed blame onto her producers and then proceeded to cry "foul" about her staff. Keep digging that hole Ellen!

No one will ever raise their voice? Dont promise that. Lost everything? I dont think so.

Her not knowing shows just how involved she was in the well-being of her workers and staff. That’s where the apology should come from, not pushing blame on others. Sink with the ship

She just blamed everyone else, but herself!!!!! Exactly what I was expecting from her.
Nick Dillon
Nick Dillon:
Based on former and current employees, people that she's interacted with outside the workplace, and the jack in the box scaring people to death amongst other things happenings on her show,, she's simply the queen of meaness. She is responsible for creating a toxic work environment where the executives were following her warped expectations, and now that she's been exposed, she's decided to shift the blame onto them. She was ahead of her time with physical and social distancing. It's sad that alot of these celebrities treat people poorly when they make it big in Hollywood because these are the same people that make them look good for their fake brands.
Julien Weiner
Julien Weiner:
First time in history “buzzfeed broke a story” was a viable sentence
Lilly VanShtup
Lilly VanShtup:
The complaints are about HER. Best to just swallow the humble pill and say, "I let it all go to my head." People will believe that more that this apology of - "Its my staff not me... I was busy dancing."
Kari Bu
Kari Bu:
Ellen clearly knew a great deal about what was going on behind the scenes... So sad she is trying to blame the producers. If she is so concerned about fair treatment, why did she never question why those she interacted with, would never look at her or speak with her? She knew!

Coming from the same classist that exclusively hangs out w/ other mega rich & unprosecuted above-the-law war criminals like G.W. Bush, normalizing such behavior & crimes, Ellen Degeneras comes off like an out of touch rich asshole here in this letter instead of a real "man of the people" like she intended. She just deflects blame onto ppl around her, offering no apologies or plan to correct the problems other than firing one EP (out of 3) & telling ppl to stop using her name when treating employees badly. Consider the problems solved then?!?

I think it's about adrenochrome and that she was on the flight log to Epstein's island..... busted, Jimmy Kimmel has the same problem.
Sly Symbiote
Sly Symbiote:
Such a cop out. Not once did she take accountability for her wrong actions and pushed blame this way the weight of her wrong doing doesn’t have to be on her. Shame on her! She so worried about her status in Hollywood that she can’t even be an adult and take responsibility. I lost all respect for her. Not that I had any to begin with
Lisa Love Ministries
Lisa Love Ministries:
Maybe Ellen’s like Steve Harvey just likes her personal space. She always helps people, can’t image her being mean and hostile. She can’t control people but now she knows her staffs a problem she can “correct” it in this #metoo #BLM propaganda. It’s systemic no matter who’s name is on the door. 1 John 5:19
