Ellen DeGeneres' show's investigation could result in 'apocalyptic ending to her TV career,' brand expert says

"The Ellen DeGeneres Show" is currently under internal investigation by its parent company WarnerMedia after a number of "toxic work environment" allegations have gone public.

In a report from Buzzfeed News, one current and 10 former staff members claimed to be victims of bullying and racism.

Citing sources, Variety revealed that a memo was sent to the show's staffers last week announcing that WarnerMedia's employee relations group has teamed with a third-party organization to conduct the interviews.

Eric Schiffer, chairman of Reputation Management Consultants, weighed in on how the results of the investigations could have "deadly consequences for Ellen" and her brand.

"She could be perpetrating one of the biggest frauds in American celebrity history," he suggested. "There are now serious investigators looking into the allegations and if the findings are as damning as what has been reported then you could watch the 'Ellen Show' go boom."

Schiffer wasn't surprised when news of an investigation broke because "there have been too many assertions that are credible," he alleged, adding that "if the leadership team at WarnerMedia didn't [act], they would feel the wrath of the public."

The brand and PR expert also reacted to DeGeneres' silence on the matter.

"I think Ellen has been arrogant in her entire approach in dealing with the allegations and it's crazy for her not to accept responsibility for what is happening under her leadership," he said. "In Hollywood, the buck stops at the star's name on the door, not at the producer level. It would be impossible for her to not know what [was] happening within her own staff."

Meanwhile, the allegations of a "toxic work environment" were addressed by the show's executive producers Ed Glavin, Andy Lassner, and Mary Connelly in a statement to Buzzfeed at the time of the outlet's report.

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

The statement explained that the "day to day responsibility of the... show is completely on" the producers.

"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," they said.

Schiffer believes DeGeneres faces "a dangerous period in her career at a critical time in the American experience." Any findings that reveal a toxic workplace "would be an apocalyptic ending to her TV career," he added.

It (ellen) was untouchable for so long. Now they are coming for it. It was a great novelty when it was new. Now? It's just going to be exposed as the fraud it is. I think back to shows my parents watched. Carol Burnett, Jackie Gleason, Johnny Carson. All class acts. The elf has class too. Low.

I always wondered how she was able to maintain the illusion for so many years. You can tell what her real personality is like if you just pay attention to her facial expressions and body language when dealing with anyone really. She proves herself a world class b*tch without having to say a word. Cant stand her!!!

It might not matter if her show is cancelled for good. She's under house arrest because she is somehow involved in the pedo mess.
What? I couldn't care less about her or her show but she's into pedophilia and all the producers are worried about is a toxic work environment? Any timeline on the earth cracking open out there and cleansing that part of Calif?

Get rid of the dykes, queers and ordinary faggots and Hollywood would never be able to produce another movie or show as you just eliminated almost half of the ‘talent’ and most of the writers and production staff. Society as a whole would be much better off.
You could still produce movies. Lots of folks out there are sitting on screenplays that will never see the light of day. Just regular folks who watched movies and said, this is the one I'D like to see.

When you think of the real classics that were done in years past and you look at the drek that is coming out in the last 25 or 30 years with a few notable exceptions to the rule it's no contest.

Of course Hollywood was never a utopia of outstanding moral caliber but back in the day they at least had the decency to make an appearance of wholesomeness and made an effort to produce quality entertainment along with the quality of the acting and then compare that to today.

Just a shadow of what it once was and thankfully most people today could give a flip about what a 'star' might think.

Her show is great when there are guest hosts on, and not her.

Morally superior white women kept ellen and oprah going. Those same morally superior nutcases will turn on anything they once held in high esteem if fashionable to do so.

They remind me of my chickens. One gets sick or injured and the rest will pick it to death. Smelly beasts...

I don't watch day time TV and very little in the evenings. I've seen the end of Ellen's show a few time when I turned on the TV early for the news. Watched Oprah once while in a doctor's waiting room and that was enough. Guess I'm not a morally superior white woman just an old white woman who doesn't care to be told how I'm living wrong by weird women (or men) on the boob tube.

The thing that scared me about Oprah at the height of her power was her ability to recommend books to read and people slavishly followed that list.

Oprah, Madonna, and Ellen ruled American women from 1990 to 2020.

What is hidden shall be revealed. I was not aware she was implicated with maxwell or epstein. Or some other pedo stuff?
