Lea Thompson backs Brad Garrett's comment on host's rude behavior — Ellen DeGeneres”

DeGeneres wasn't directly implicated in the accusations, but as one former employee put it: "If she wants to have her own show and have her name on the show title, she needs to be more involved to see what's going on".

When DeGeneres' letter to her staffers leaked to the press on Thursday, actor Brad Garrett took to Twitter to react to the news, accusing the hostess of poor behavior by multiple accounts. "How quickly so many forget", he said. "How easy it is to stay quiet when it doesn't effect [sic] them", Braun wrote in an Instagram post. She has helped change the views for equality all around the country and the world. She isn't about what is popular she is about what is right.

He added, "Today I'm sending love out to her. @theellenshow thank you for all you do and keep your head held high".

In a letter to employees obtained by TheWrap, DeGeneres vowed to "correct the issues".

The email followed an internal investigation by Warner Bros. "She can blame every executive under the sun - but Ellen is ultimately the one to blame".

Earlier this week, a second bombshell report alleged further claims of abuse and mistreatment of staff at Ellen DeGeneres' daytime show, with rumours now spreading that NBC is now considering scrapping the show and / or replacing DeGeneres with James Corden.

On July 16, individuals, who remained anonymous out of fear of retribution, told Buzzfeed News that they faced microaggressions, were fired after taking medical leave or bereavement days and were subjected to favoritism by executive producers.

It continued, saying "the day to day responsibility of the Ellen show is completely on us".
