Brad Garrett Tweets Ellen DeGeneres’ Horrible Treatment of People Is ‘Common Knowledge’
There were claims made about Ellen DeGeneres and her show
Multiple former employees of The Ellen DeGeneres Show have come forward to anonymously tell their stories. Everybody Loves Raymond actor, Brad Garrett tweeted Ellen DeGeneres’ treatment of other people is common knowledge in response.
Some claimed they were fired for taking medical leave and bereavement days. One employee claimed she left after hearing comments about her race.
BuzzFeed News released a report covering the workplace of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. A current employee and ten employees talked about their experience on the show claiming they faced racism and a toxic work environment.
The former employees seem to have different opinions on whether DeGeneres knew about this. The talk show host did release an apology.
Another report was released by BuzzFeed News. A former employee has accused executive producer Kevin Leman of sexual harassment. Another claimed she saw Lenman groping a production assistant. The report also claimed five former employees accused executive producer Ed Glavin touching them in a way that made them feel uncomfortable.
An investigation has been launched into the show’s work environment. DeGeneres addressed her employees after the report.
DeGeneres released an apology
“As we’ve grown exponentially, I’ve not been able to stay on top of everything and relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I’d want them done,” it continued. “Clearly some didn’t. That will now change and I’m committed to ensuring this does not happen again.”
“My name is on the show and everything we do and I take responsibility for that. Alongside Warner Bros., we immediately began an internal investigation and we are taking steps, together, to correct the issues,” read part of her statement according to Variety.

Fans reacted to his tweet in the replies. “Well said, Brad!! This is not news; it’s been circulating for years that she is not the nice person she portrays on her TV show – it all comes down to $ for her, plain & simple! So done with her!! #byebye,” one person tweeted.
“Sorry but it comes from the top @TheEllenShow Know more than one who were treated horribly by her. Common knowledge,” he tweeted on July 31. The actor tweeted this along with a Variety article about DeGeneres’ apology.
Other fans pressed for more information from the actor. Garrett has yet to follow up on his tweet.
“It takes guts to call ppl out like this. Brad was on the circuit (with his bball bit) around the same time Ellen was. It would be easy for him to stay silent, but he didn‘t. Brad‘s a good guy – that‘s common knowledge,” another fan tweeted.
