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.”
