The Ellen Show is being investigated for what’s being described as a toxic working environment, celebrities are now starting to come out against Ellen. Brad Garrett tweeted on Friday “Sorry but it comes from the top ⁦@TheEllenShow  Know more than one who were treated horribly by her.⁩ Common knowledge.” And actress Lea Thompson responded to it tweeting “True story. It is.” This came after news that Ellen was considering leaving her show. According to sources, “She feels she can’t go on and the only way to recover her personal brand from this is to shut down the show.” And as fast as those rumors came out, came rumors of who could potentially replace her: Late Late Show host James Corden.  Apparently he was mentioned being her successor even before this investigation started and even more so since. One of the show’s producers came forward to deny Ellen is going anywhere saying “Nobody is going off the air” in fact, word is she’ll be headed back to the studio this month.
