Ellen Degeneres Show To Be Investigated For Toxic Work Culture
The popular television talk show of Ellen DeGeneres has become subject of an inquiry, following a report of the presence of toxic work culture driven by racism, bullying and intimidation. Reportedly, the show became the subject of an internal investigation by WarnerMedia following numerous accounts of workplace problems. According to sources, the show producers sent out a memo to staffers last week, sharing that they have roped in an outside consultant to interview current and former employees about their experience working on the popular talk show. Earlier this month, a report in BuzzFeed alleged racism and intimidation on the show. The piece was based on anonymous testimonials by a current and some former employees, who claimed to have faced racism, bullying and intimidation. It also mentioned jokes about mistaking two Black female employees with the same hairstyle, as well as criticism of statements allegedly made to another staffer by executive producer Ed Glavin.
