Ellen Addresses Toxic Work Environment On Season Premiere. WATCH!

Ellen DeGeneres returned to the studio for the season premiere of talk show and addressed allegations of a toxic production environment at the daytime series in her opening monologue, reports CNN.

Sarcastically calling her summer “great,” DeGeneres apologized to anyone who had been negatively affected while working on her staff.
 
“As you may have heard, this summer there were allegations of a toxic work environment at our show and then there was an investigation. I learned that things happened here that never should have happened. I take that very seriously and I want to say I am so sorry to the people that were affected. I know that I am in a position of privilege and power and with that comes responsibility and I take responsibility for what happens at my show,” DeGeneres said, reports CNN.
 
She added that she is now “taking responsibility for what happens at my show.”
