Ellen DeGeneres has faced a backlash throughout 2020. Following current and former staff members’ claims that the talk-show host has mistreated employees and fostered a toxic work environment at “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, celebrities are taking the floor to share their own stories about the comedian.

Stars such as Brad Garrett and Lea Thompson, expressed their negative sentiments towards DeGeneres, while others including Scooter Braun and Portia de Rossi, have stood by her and spoken highly about her character.

The “Everybody Loves Raymond” actor Garrett called out DeGeneres via Twitter on Friday saying he knew “more than one” person who was “treated horribly” by DeGeneres, adding that her behaviour was “common knowledge”.

“Back to the Future” actress Thompson seconded Garrett’s message, replying to People’s reports about his comment and wrote: “True story. It is.”

The actress, however, did not provide further details on her personal experience with the talk-show host.

Music manager has come DeGeneres’ defence saying: “People love to take shot at people,” he said. “They love to see people fall. How quickly so many forget.”

He continued to describe DeGeneres as a “kind, thoughtful, courageous human being who stands for what is right and highlights on her show the best of us,” adding that she’s used her platform to “change the views for equality”.

Model Portia de Rossi spoke out in support of DeGeneres in an Instagram post on Monday.

De Rossi, who is also married to DeGeneres, said “I Stand By Ellen” on it along with the show’s mantra, “Be Kind To One Another,”

She added: “To all our fans….we see you. Thank you for your support”.
