Ellen DeGeneres’s celebrity friends have come to her defence. Seeing The Ellen DeGeneres Show get dragged through the mud like this just is not sitting well with some.
Any allegations made against a celebrity can have lasting effects on their reputation even if those claims are found to be untrue. Living in the spotlight isn’t always all that.
Briefly.co.za learnt that a few celebs have come forward to defend Ellen against the toxic working environment claims that have been made about her show.
Katy Perry was one of the first to stand up for Ellen. She took to social media to let people know that while she cannot say that the claims are false, but that she herself has never in her wildest dreams ever suspected Ellen of ever being capable of anything like this. Perry stands by her belief in Ellen.
“I know I can’t speak for anyone else’s experience besides my own but I want to acknowledge that I have only ever had positive takeaways from my time with Ellen & on [The Ellen DeGeneres Show]. I think we all have witnessed the light & continual fight for equality that she has brought to the world through her platform for decades. Sending you love & a hug, friend.”

Kevin Hart later joined team Ellen, also taking to social media to back her up. Hart cannot believe Ellen is going through this and too paid testament to how amazing Ellen has been to him over the years. Hart wrote on Instagram:
“It’s crazy to see my friend go through what she’s going through publicly. I have known Ellen for years and I can honestly say that she’s one of the dopest people on the planet.
“She has treated my family and my team with love and respect from day one. The internet has become a crazy world of negativity... we are falling in love with [people’s downfall]. It’s honestly sad... When did we get here? I stand by the ones that I know and that I love. Looking forward to the future where we get back to loving one another... This hate has to stop. Hopefully, it goes out of style soon.”

Briefly.co.za previously reported that talk show host Ellen DeGeneres' recent controversies about The Ellen DeGeneres Show are believed to have led to some of her top celebrity pals deserting her.
Ellen is one of the most admired women in show business and her multi-billion-dollar brand has always been said to be driven on the "wheels of kindness".
However, all this has been put into question after an investigation was opened due to many accusations from former and current employees about bullying and a lot of toxicity at the working place.
