Earlier this year, Blake Shelton and Dax Shepard rescued Ellen after she was found hanging out with George W. Bush.

DeGeneres, who is now part of an investigation into workplace practices following complaints about the toxic environment behind the scenes at The Ellen DeGeneres Show, has also been hit by claims she tried to get a waitress suspended for having chipped nail polish.

"I would dread going to [my mom's] office to see her after school or on a day if I was sick and Ellen was there", he said.

"One incident stands out in my mind, "DailyMail quoted him as saying, "I was sitting beside her desk".


"She actually went out of her way to attempt and hurt somebody who had been under her serving her", the 35-year old informed that the US Daily Mail. While a steady drumbeat of celebrities have thrown their weight behind her, former staffers are grabbing megaphones to vocalise what, they say, is the reality of working at The Ellen DeGeneres Show. You're going to try to take money away from me for two weeks because you don't like the way my nails looked?

"There is an inherent sadistic-ness for her occasionally, beneath the veil of the entire'be kind to other people' item", she explained.

Ellen DeGeneres has a lot of pals in the industry, but only a few are coming to rescue her. "It's a insane thing to do".

DeGeneres, who was not personally accused in the allegations to date, subsequently issued an apology to her staff in which she promised that she is "committed to ensuring this does not happen again".


Ellen was "discouraged from addressing the allegations" while the investigation was underway but she sent a letter to staff and admitted that she had to take responsibility as her name was at the top.

"Isn't always great? No", said a former staffer.

Jenner then went on to blast DeGeneres for her comments and the subsequent fall-out, writing, "This discussion further alienated me from members of the LGBTQ community".

"Executive manufacturers Ed Glavin, Mary Connelly, also Andy Lassner said in joint statement they" have strived to make an open, secure and inclusive work environment" within yesteryear 16 years. One of the sources even suggested that Ellen is "notoriously one of the meanest people alive".


The show is now undergoing an internal investigation into its workplace environment by WarnerMedia.
