This comes after claims that the work culture behind-the-scenes has been rife with bullying, despite the “be kind” mantra DeGeneres presents on the hugely popular talkshow.
The allegations culminated in July, whenBuzzFeed published a story interviewing former employees who alleged a toxic environment of “racism, fear, and intimidation.” Following the reports, some of the allegations were denied by producers but an investigation was launched by the Warner Brothers network. DeGeneres then apologised in a memo that was leaked to the press and vowed to put things right.
Now, according to Variety, executive producers Ed Glavin, Kevin Leman and co-executive producer Jonathan Norman parted ways with the talkshow.
DeGeneres reportedly apologised in a Zoom call with more than 200 talkshow staffers.
