I think I tend to side with the workers on this, but again it's really hard to know. And I'm done making assumptions without knowing all the facts.
Ellen DeGeneres should have considered laying off the jokes.
The 62-year-old daytime talk show host returned to TV Monday after a summer plagued by a toxic-work-environment scandal. During the show’s season premiere monologue,DeGeneres apologizedfor what occurred behind the scenes and promised viewers she’s the person “you see on TV.”
Mixed in with her apology, however, were sarcastic jokes about how “terrific” her summer had been and how she was trying to work on her patience — or lack thereof. The result didn’t sit well with the former employees she’s accused of hurting.
“Not only did Ellen turn my trauma, turn our traumas, into a joke, she somehow managed to make this about her,”one former employeetold BuzzFeed News.
