Howard Stern's surprising advice to Ellen DeGeneres amid toxic workplace allegations

"I wanted to only speak from my own experience". Rumours that Ellen herself is "notoriously one of the meanest people alive" have been around for a while, so her sunny TV persona has taken quite the hit.

In a statement to US Weekly, Stephen "tWitch" Boss, 37, insisted there's "love" behind the scenes on the embattled talk show.

In an internal memo to her staff last month, DeGeneres responded to the allegations, admitting she had "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".

In a new profile in The Los Angeles Times, the superstar singer opened up about the not-so-glamorous side effects of her storied career in pop music, sharing that she used to suffer from clinical depression when things weren't going well for her.

DeGeneres, 62, is now facing an investigation over a slew of serious allegations about what happened behind the scenes of her talk show including alleged racism, bullying and fostering a "toxic environment".


"I think the universe was like, "OK, all right, let's have some humble pie here.' My negative thoughts were not great".

In 2010, he said: "Ellen DeGeneres is such a jerk".

Recent allegations included employees being fired after taking medical leave or bereavement days, facing microaggressions and a culture of bullying and favouritism by executive producers.

"We all have to be more mindful about the way our words and actions affect others, and I'm glad the issues at our show were brought to my attention", she said. "They now know it is a con work".

Brad Garrett tweeted out that mistreatment by Ellen was "Common Knowledge".


tWitch is the latest celeb to come forward and defend Ellen DeGeneres.

There were hundreds of responses, and the talk show host was dealt another huge blow when Buzzfeed published a bombshell report in which a group of former and current Ellen Show staff sensationally spoke out against the program.

Mr Schiffer instructed news.com.au that Ellen's track record will under no circumstances entirely get better as a end result of the allegations.

"With the enormity of press for months on finish, it's near hard to not have any manufacturer lacerated into bits", he explained. Ellen's empire is now a basis of studies of toxicity, racism and sexual misconduct.
