In an investigation published by Buzzfeed News, 11 employees (10 former and one current) spoke out against their experiences working on the day time talk show.


The employees have stepped forward with the allegations that they were fired after taking medical or bereavement leave, experienced racism, and said they had negative experiences at the hands of the show’s management.

Reportedly, an employee has even accused Ellen DeGeneres of being a mean person. Thus accusation was sparked by a tweet from Kevin T Porter earlier this year which called her “the meanest person alive”.

More than 1000 people responded to the tweet, many with their own allegations about DeGeneres’ behavior.


“People focus on rumors about how Ellen is mean and everything like that, but that’s not the problem,” the employee told the publication.

The employee has pointed out the atmosphere of bullying in the workplace. According to him, the meanness generated by the host is not a major problem, but bullying can’t be tolerated.

“The issue is these three executive producers running the show who are in charge of all these people [and] who make the culture and are putting out this feeling of bullying and being mean,” an employee said.

According to the employee, who wants to remain anonymous, the three producers Ed Glavin, Mary Connelly, and Andy Lassner feel that everyone who works at The Ellen Show is lucky. They assert that if anyone has a problem, he should leave and can be replaced as everyone wants to work here.

While none of the employees said bad particularly about Ellen, the reason may be that none of them had any direct contact with her.

The producers Ed Glavin, Mary Connelly, and Andy Lassner have already addressed the accusations via E! News, telling the news outlet that ‘We are heartbroken and sorry to hear that even one person in our production family had a negative experience. It is not who we are and not the mission Ellen has set for us all. For the record, the day to day responsibilities of the Ellen show’s completely on us. We take all this very seriously and we realize, as many in this world are learning, that we have to do better, so are committed to doing better, and we will do better.’
