Ellen DeGeneres has broken her silence on those allegations of a “toxic” workplace at her long-running talk show.
In a memo to staff, the host wrote that she will “correct” issues raised about behind-the-scenes goings-on of the show. She wrote, “As we’ve grown exponentially, I’ve not been able to stay on top of everything and relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I’d want them done. Clearly some didn’t. That will now change and I’m committed to ensuring this does not happen again.”
One of the changes includes firing the show’s executive producer, Ed Glavin.
The memo comes after staffers made allegations of both racism and intimidation. Earlier this week, it was reported that WarnerMedia hired a firm to investigate the show.
