THE Ellen DeGeneres show is reportedly under investigation following numerous accusations the set is a “toxic work environment” for staffers.
An internal investigation by parent company WarnerMedia is allegedly taking place after employees came forward about experiencing “racism, fear, and intimidation” while working on the talk show.
According to Variety, Telepictures – which produces the daytime series – and Warner Bros. – which is in charge of distribution – sent an e-mail to staffers last week to say they’re working with a third party firm.
