The beloved talk show host has candidly shared her difficult experience following the allegations of a toxic workplace environment on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' in 2020.

AceShowbiz - In a recent standup routine, Ellen DeGeneres joked about being "kicked out of show business" for being "mean." She referred to the July 2020 BuzzFeed News report, in which former staffers spoke anonymously about racial microaggressions, fear of retribution, and instances of being penalized for taking medical leave.

The allegations had a devastating impact on the 66-year-old comedian's persona, transforming her into a "one-dimensional character" that "gave stuff away and danced up steps." She admitted that the ordeal made her struggle to dance and socialize amid the scandal.

The fallout from the scandal affected not only DeGeneres but also her wife, Portia de Rossi. DeGeneres confessed that she "hated the way the show ended" because she loved it so much and did not want her final episode to be marred by negativity.

Despite the challenges, DeGeneres has found solace in her relationship with de Rossi and the support of her fans. She has slowly returned to comedy and is currently on her "Ellen's Last Stand...Up Tour", during which she has opened up about her past struggles.

DeGeneres has admitted to making mistakes as a boss and has learned from her experience. She has also returned to her comedy roots and found a new balance in her life. While the allegations have left a deep impact, she has chosen to focus on the positive aspects of her life and career.

DeGeneres' struggles serve as a reminder that even the most beloved public figures are not immune to criticism. Her experience with toxic workplace allegations highlights the importance of creating and maintaining healthy workplace environments for all employees.
