'The Ellen DeGeneres Show', which once garnered spotlight for its humorous episodes, is now ravaged by a whirlwind of events that started with allegations over “toxic” work culture. New revelations are surfacing every day with ex-employees now exposing sexual misconduct and harassment by show’s producers, according to a report.

According to a BuzzFeed News report, head writer and executive producer Kevin Leman allegedly asked an employee for a “hand job or perform oral s*x in a bathroom at a company party in 2013”. Another employee said they saw Leman grabbing p***s of a member from production. The report said about a dozen employees from senior to assistant level have complained about Leman’s sexually explicit comments.

As per report by Variety, Ellen said, “On day one of our show, I told everyone in our first meeting that ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ would be a place of happiness — no one would ever raise their voice, and everyone would be treated with respect. Obviously, something changed, and I am disappointed to learn that this has not been the case”.

“My name is on the show and everything we do and I take responsibility for that. Alongside Warner Bros, we immediately began an internal investigation and we are taking steps, together, to correct the issues. 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,” she continued

After the recent developments, the Internet is slamming Ellen over her apology for toxic workplace culture. “Ain't had time for her BS in decades now, cancel the tv show already she's just another grotesque wealthy celeb like all the rest,” tweets an exasperated user.



 

An enraged user said, “Her remarks in no way are an actual apology for her own behavior nor does she take responsibility for her creating and fostering a hostile work environment. This is on her. But she blames others".



 

Twitterati said the “narcissist sociopath” should be canceled. “The craven words of a narcissistic sociopath who won’t take responsibility for her own hideous behavior. The fish rots from the top, #EllenDeGeneres. Time for cancel culture to toll its bell once again—another one bites the dust,” tweeted a user. 



 

Another user said: “Celebs aren't gods. Just ordinary people, with a particular talent. Generally, they are self-obsessed, egomaniacs. Not decent people at all. Stop putting them on pedestals. Key workers deserve more respect than celebs. Where would society be without KWs? Thank you to the KWs.”



 

"Was this an apology though? Is there any recognition of her own accountability? Sounds like a lot of deflection honestly #Ellen #EllenDeGeneres #EllenIsOverParty," said another.



 

"Classic non apology. Ellen says 'Again, I’m so sorry to anyone who didn’t have that experience' Not, 'Sorry I wouldn't let you eat meat and was mean to a different person everyday," posted a user.
