Viewers are doing Ellen DeGeneres a huge favor and canceling her show on her behalf. At least, that’s what the critics are saying as no one seems to buy Ellen’s apology after allegations have been made that (along with an investigation) her show has a toxic work environment behind the scenes. Here’s what you need to know. While Ellen is doing her best to apologize, many of her former fans and critics are saying ‘no thank you.’
“As you may have heard, there were allegations of a toxic work environment at our show, and then there was an investigation,” DeGeneres said during her first episode back earlier this week. “I learned that things happened here that never should’ve happened. I take that very seriously, and I want to say that I’m so sorry to the people who were affected.
Viewers Have Canceled The Ellen DeGeneres Show On Ellen’s Behalf
“I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power, and I realize that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show. We have had a lot of conversations over the last few weeks about the show, our workplace and what we want for the future. We have made the necessary changes and today we are starting a new chapter.”
Of course, it didn’t take very long for Ellen’s critics to comment about the situation, with a lot of them making it pretty clear that they don’t believe the longtime host will change her ways. While it looks like she is trying to make her wrongs into rights in front of the camera, others believe that things will remain the same, and continue to be just as toxic, behind the camera.
Some comments have included, “I’m shocked her show came back. It seemed so obvious, to many people, I think, that her kindness veil started to slip because she’s bored of this job. She openly dislikes her guests! She’s sarcastic with fans! I don’t know.
I expected her to take this as an out,” along with, “People like that never quit. It becomes their mission to either prove others wrong or burn it down trying. She has enough credibility with other celebs and money to recover just FINE.
Hope for those who depend on her for their living that things change. She has less power to hurt them now, so hopefully that helps. She herself won’t change, though.”
Another critic wrote, “I’m confused as to why we should accept her apology and move on. It’s not that just the higher executives were horrible, she was too. There are PLENTY of stories of how SHE mistreated staff and guests. I feel like she’s still shifting blame. Anyway, she clearly doesn’t enjoy this job, we don’t enjoy her, let’s just mutually break up, yeah?”
