In the midst of a controversy, Portia de Rossi defends his wife.
Since several weeks, American presenter Ellen DeGeneres is in turmoil. The starting point: BuzzFeed News investigation uncovering testimonials from former show employees Ellen DeGeneres Show, who denounced a toxic and racist work environment.
Serious accusations answered by Ellen DeGeneres in a letter obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. The host assured that she would take responsibility and that action would be taken “to correct problems” : “We have grown exponentially and I haven’t been able to stay on top of everything, relying on others to do their jobs the way I would like them to do. Clearly, some did not. This will change and I am determined to make sure that never happens again“Some sources told the American media that producers have since been fired.
For her part, the actress Portia de Rossi, married to Ellen DeGeneres since 2008, spoke on her Instagram account to defend his wife. In the caption of a photo where is written “I support Ellen”, the actress revealed in Ally McBeal inscribed in the caption: “To all our fans… we see you. Thank you for your support #stopbotattacks #IStandWithEllenDeGeneres #IStandByEllen #IstandByEllenDeGeneres”
