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.

The Office's Brian Baumgartner Pitched This Relationship To Writers But It Never Happened

Brian Baumgartner was really hoping that Kevin and Erin could be a couple on The Office.

In a recent episode of his The Oral History of ‘The Office’ podcast, the actor opened up about his pitch to the writers about the could-be couple, with guest Ellie Kemper.

“Do you know that I pitched Kevin and Erin getting together?” Brian told her, to which she replied, “I think that would be a pretty reasonable relationship.”

He added, “I went up to the writers’ room, and I said, ‘If Kevin could mature just a little, there was something about their energy that I thought was right. Their energies matched in a weird way.’”

Ellie agreed, saying, “That actually makes perfect sense to me. I love that pitch.”

“Sadly,” Brian said, “we never got to witness the great love story that Kevin and Erin could have been.”

Ellie did open up about Erin’s actual relationship on the series with Andy, admitting that it didn’t make sense to her.

“I never thought [Andy and Erin were a good match],” Ellie shared. “I felt like Andy was a bit too childish. He wasn’t ready to take care of Erin. Erin was ready to take care of Andy, but I felt that it was uneven in that respect.”

If you missed it, this former co-star of Brian and Ellie‘s is trying to get a spinoff happening…

'Home Alone' Reboot Casts Archie Yates, Ellie Kemper, & Rob Delaney

Disney Plus’ upcoming Home Alone reboot has found some of its stars!

Jojo Rabbit‘s Archie Yates, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt‘s Ellie Kemper, and Catastrophe‘s Rob Delaney have all been cast in the film, Variety reports.

Dan Mazer will direct.

Archie Yates will reportedly not be playing the iconic role of Kevin McCallister, but instead a new character “in a similar premise to the original franchise.” Additionally, Ellie Kemper and Rob Delaney will not be playing Kevin’s parents, but rather other people in the film, possibly a couple not related to Kevin.
