Ellen DeGeneres Apologizes
Written by Rika C on August 19, 2020
Ellen DeGeneres previously apologized after former staffers came forward to share their experience of a “toxic work environment” while working on set of the talk show. In a letter to staffers, she vowed that she is “committed to ensuring this does not happen again.” “I’m a multi-layered person, and I try to be the best person I can be and I try to learn from my mistakes,” the host told staffers. “I’m hearing that some people felt that I wasn’t kind or too short with them, or too impatient. I apologize to anybody if I’ve hurt your feelings in any way.” Now, following new reports that DeGeneres has fired three top executive producers amid claims of sexual misconduct and harassment, the 56-year-old is apologizing once again for the poor behavior on set. Warner Brothers has also confirmed the show has “parted ways” with executive producers Ed Glavin and Kevin Leman, and co-executive producer Jonathan Norman. Ed Glavin and Kevin Leman have denied the claims against them, while Jonathan Norman has not publicly commented.
