Ellen DeGeneres may be ready to say goodbye to her talk show as an investigation into toxic workplace claims is underway.
According to a new report, DeGeneres, 62, has been in talks with top executives from Warner Bros. and Telepictures, the company that produces the show, to let them know she is considering pulling the plug entirely.
The article goes on to state the following:
“She feels she can’t go on and the only way to recover her personal brand from this is to shut down the show,” an insider at Telepictures revealed to Daily Mail.
In April, unnamed members of the show’s production team expressed concerns about communication from leadership over the status of employment or pay, as the coronavirus pandemic forced shutdowns.
DeGeneres herself was accused of “cold” behavior, while current and former staffers said the working environment at the show was toxic.
Then, as show producers tried to take the blame for the environment, Buzzfeed reported on interviews with 36 members of the show’s staff. They found several who alleged sexual misconduct by top producers Ed Glavin, Kevin Leman, and Jonathan Norman.
Leman was accused of soliciting oral sex at a company party in 2013, of grabbing a production assistant’s penis on a different occasion, and of making crude and sexual jokes disguised as “sarcasm,” the report said.
Dozens of employees said Glavin “had a reputation for being handsy with women,” and of using intimidation to control employees. Leman denies the claims.
Three staffers claim that Norman groomed a staffer and attempted to perform oral sex on him. Norman denied the allegations.
Meanwhile, actor Brad Garret said, “Sorry but it comes from the top @TheEllenShow,” adding that he knows “more than one” who was “treated horribly by her,” calling it, “common knowledge.”
Actress Leah Thompson agreed with Garret, tweeting, “True story. It is,” to a PEOPLE report about his comments.
True story. It is.
