Ellen DeGeneres, very well known icon and comedian, has won many awards from her hit movies, (she was the voice of Dory in Finding Nemo) to Glamour Women of the Year. With all the new controversies happening with Ellen and her talk show, her reputation has taken a big hit.
As of July 27 the show has been officially placed under investigation by WarnerMedia. Employees and staff from the show have spoke out about being subjected to sexually harassment and misconduct at the hands from multiple of the shows executive producers, they called it a ¨toxic workplace culture.¨ Former employees also stated they were fired from taking medical leave or bereavement days to attend family funerals.
