Ellen DeGeneres apologises to staff over workplace ‘issues’

Several staff will be replaced on Ellen DeGeneres’ daytime chat show after an investigation uncovered “deficiencies” in “the show’s day-to-day management”.

The inquiry was prompted by a widely-circulated story on Buzzfeed news, in which employees made allegations of racism and intimidation on the show.

The accusers claimed the workplace was toxic and “dominated by fear”.

In an email to staff, Ellen apologised and said she was “committed to ensuring this does not happen again”.

“We all have to be more mindful about the way our words and actions affect others, and I’m glad the issues at our show were brought to my attention,” she added.

Production company WarnerMedia said “several staffing changes” would take place as a result of its investigation.
