Investigation Launched Into Ellen DeGeneres Workplace Racism Claims

The Ellen DeGeneres Show has become the subject of an internal investigation by WarnerMedia following numerous accounts of poor working condition by staffs on the show.

Executives from show producer Telepictures and distributor Warner Bros. Television sent a memo to staffers last week saying they have engaged WBTV-owner WarnerMedia’s employee relations group and a third party firm to find out the truth from workers.

The memo comes following recent unflattering reports about working conditions at the Ellen Degeneres show.  The memo came from the desks of Telepictures executive vice president Donna Redier Linsk and WBTV vice president of human resources Donna Hancock Husband.

“We are truly heartbroken and sorry to learn that even one person in our production family has had a negative experience. It’s not who we are and not who we strive to be, and not the mission Ellen has set for us,” the group said.

“For the record, the day to day responsibility of the Ellen show is completely on us. We take all of this very seriously and we realize, as many in the world are learning, that we need to do better, are committed to do better, and we will do better.”
