UPDATE: Now Jay Leno has come to Ellen's defense, but people are VERY skeptical of these celebs coming to her defense. Read a bunch of it below.
First to come to Ellen's defense is her brother, saying:
"If you think Ellen would knowingly allow bullying or racism on her show, you don’t know my sister," Vance wrote on Twitter Tuesday. "She has been and continues to be a bright light in a dark world. She’s one of the kindest, most generous people you’ll ever meet. And one of the funniest."
And then, Kevin Hart & Katy Perry spoke up.....
Katy Perry and Kevin Hart are the latest celebrities to try and salvage Ellen DeGeneres’ image but are being torn to shreds for ignoring the accusations against the talk show host.
Ellen is clearly in the middle of a PR campaign to try and save herself amid numerous reports of atoxic workplaceincluding racism, sexual misconduct by producers and claims she’s just an awful person.
The talk show host’s team appears to be asking big names to show public support for Ellen amid the scandal. One of the first people was Ellen’s wife Portia de Rossi who said, “I Stand By Ellen.”
Katy Perry, who is a frequent guest on Ellen, tweet out her opinion on the host. She said, “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 @theellenshow . 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 @TheEllenShow ♥️”
