A new turning point has come up in the events of ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’. The show is recently in the headlines after former employees came forward with work-place harassment. The famous talk show is undergoing investigation by Warner Bros. The newest update reveals that three senior producers of the show have stepped down from their roles.
Ed Galvin, Kevin Leman, and Jonathan Norman have stepped down from their roles of executive and co-executive producers. Producers Mary Connelly, Derek Westervelt, and Andy Lassner will continue as producers. Resident DJ, Stephen Boss, has been promoted to the position of executive producer.
Around 70 staff members anonymously came forward to press charges unofficially about harassment. Galvin, Leman, and Norman were the top three names that came forward in regards of sexual allegations. However, they had denied such accusations straight on.
Many staff members had called the work place absolutely toxic and even commented on Ellen’s demeaning behavior. Ellen had issued an official apology promising to do better for everyone. However, it was revealed that staff members were actually happy with her downfall. Many celebrities also chimed in saying that workplace harassment at the talk show is not unusual.
