Ellen DeGeneres' Mistreatment Of People Is 'Common Knowledge,' Actor Brad Garrett Says

KEY POINTS

  • Actor Brad Garrett said that Ellen DeGeneres bears responsibility for the "toxic" workplace culture of her show
  • "Back to the Future" actress Lea Thompson backed Garrett's statement
  • "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" is under internal investigation over mistreatment complaints from former and current staff

Ellen DeGeneres has been called out by actor Brad Garrett, who has appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" multiple times, for her "horrible" treatment of people after the talk show host issued an apology to her show's crew.

"The Ellen DeGeneres Show" is currently under internal investigation after several employees came forward with allegations regarding its workplace environment. After DeGeneres's letter to her staff was made public, there were some who did not buy the comedian's apology, including Garrett and actress Lea Thompson.

On Thursday, the "Everybody Loves Raymond" and "Fargo" star commented on DeGeneres' letter, saying that the award-winning host's mistreatment of people is "common knowledge."

"Sorry but it comes from the top @TheEllenShow Know more than one who were treated horribly by her. Common knowledge," he wrote on Twitter, tagging DeGeneres.


Thompson supported Garrett's claim, posting on Twitter Friday, "True story. It is."
