“As you may have heard, this summer our show was accused of a toxic work environment and then an investigation. I found out that something had happened that should never have happened. I take it very seriously and I want to say that I told DeGeneres that I am very sad for those affected. I know I am in a position of privilege and power and with that comes responsibility and I take responsibility for everything that happens in my performance, ”DeGeneres said.
The show’s distributor, Warner Bros.
A statement from WarnerMedia said, “Warner Bros. and Ellen DeGeneres take the latest allegations surrounding the show’s workplace culture very seriously.”
On Monday, DeGeneres said “necessary changes” have been made since the demonstration.
“We’ve talked a lot over the last few weeks about the show, the workplace and what we want for the future,” she said. We’ve made important changes, and today we’re starting a new chapter. ”
He also joked about calling her a “kind” lady, saying it was “going to be a difficult situation.”
“Known as the best lady rat ahead.” “So I would give you some advice there if someone is thinking of changing their title or giving themselves a nickname, don’t go with ‘be kind’ lady Rat. Don’t do that. The truth is that I am the person you see. Yes. On TV. “
