Celebrities Support Ellen DeGeneres' Statement on Her Alleged Behavior & Workplace Toxicity

Ellen DeGeneres came forward on the first episode of her talk show to break her silence on the allegations of workplace toxicity and rumors about how she treats those who work below her.

“I’m so happy to be back in the studio. There are a lot of things I want to talk about. I’ve been looking forward to addressing it all directly and, unfortunately, talking directly to people has been illegal for six months, so I have a virtual audience here instead,” she said. “As you may have heard, this summer there were allegations of a toxic work environment at our show, and then there was an investigation. I learned that things happened here that never should have happened. I take that very seriously and I want to say I am so sorry to the people who were affected. I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power, and I realize that with that comes responsibility and I take responsibility for what happens at my show. This is The Ellen DeGeneres Show, I am Ellen DeGeneres.”

Now, a few celebrities took to Instagram to comment on The Ellen Show monologue. Several celebs “liked” the post on Instagram as well including Joey King and Chris Pratt, among many others. Click through the gallery to see a few of the comments.
