Ex-'Ellen DeGeneres Show' employees claim culture of 'rampant sexual misconduct' in new article. [View all]

Source: Yahoo News

Ellen DeGeneres’s apology to her talk show staffers over workplace toxicity allegations hasn’t stopped new ones from surfacing.

One day after the Ellen DeGeneres Show host broke her silence in a staff letter about the ongoing investigation of the show, a new report from BuzzFeed News has dozens of former staffers making claims of “rampant sexual misconduct and harassment” on the set. And Everybody Loves Raymond actor Brad Garrett said that mistreatment by DeGeneres — whose motto is “be kind” — is “common knowledge.”

According to the new BuzzFeed story, top executive producers engaged in inappropriate workplace behavior, with one “being handsy” with female staffers and another soliciting oral sex at a work party.

Many of the new claims center around head writer and executive producer Kevin Leman. A former employee claimed Leman was behind the work party incident — which they said played out in a restroom at a company event in 2013. Another former staffer said they separately saw Leman grab a male production assistant’s genitals. Another ex-staffer claimed she saw Leman grope a production assistant in a car in 2017. And dozens of others talked about sexually explicit comments made by him, typically to lower-level and younger employees.

Comment.....: I guess Ellen DeGeneres is a total phony. She knew all about this as she must have. No letter of apology will change anything. Been going on for years. End of Ellen & her show. Good by phony..Good ridence.

I like this sentence, " .....a new report from BuzzFeed News has dozens of former staffers making claims of “rampant sexual misconduct and harassment” on the set....Also....Brad Garrett said that mistreatment by DeGeneres — whose motto is “be kind” — is “common knowledge.”
