The Ellen DeGeneres Show has sacked three of its top producers following vallegations of sexual harassment and misconduct.
Show host herself, Ellen announced the firing of executive producers, Ed Glavin and Kevin Leman, and co-executive producer Jonathan Norman in a video conference over sexual harassment allegations.
Recall that about a month ago, Warner Bros. began an internal investigation of The Ellen DeGeneres Show following complaints of racism by staff and employees.
Leman had said in a statement, “I have always aimed to treat everyone on the staff with kindness, inclusivity and respect. In my whole time on the show, to my knowledge, I’ve never had a single HR or inter-personal complaint made about me.”
In Norman’s statement, he enthused, “I have never had a single complaint against me in my career. I have never ‘groomed’ anyone. I have never done anything to harm another staff member. Ever.”Photo Credit: Instagram
