In a Buzzfeed article, the members of the staff expressed their views and showed their allegations regarding bullying and racism. Although the argument involved the senior managers and executive producers at first, an employee included Ellen as stating that she should take up more responsibility when it comes to her own staff.
To all the feud that was stirred, Ellen had to speak up regarding the same. Ellen wrote an apology and also stated that she feels sorry for the people mistreated. She has been bullied and criticized before due to her sexuality hence, she said that she feels compassion for everyone who is treated wrongly.
