Although there has been speculation and conspiracy theories involving Ellen Degeneres, it appears there is finally some light being shed on her show and what happens behind the scenes.
The Ellen DeGeneres Show is already under fire for claims that the set is an extremely toxic work environment, and now the popular daytime talk show is facing numerous sexual assault and harassment accusations.
Buzzfeed News reported Friday that it spoke with dozens of former employees of Ellen DeGeneres’ show, many of whom confirmed incidents of sexual harassment and assault. Executive producer and head writer Kevin Leman faces allegations that he asked for a hand job and oral sex from a male staffer in a bathroom during a 2013 company party.
Leman, who is also the creator of Ellen’s Game of Games, is also alleged to have grabbed the penis of a production assistant and groped another production assistant inside a vehicle and kissed his neck.
Buzzfeed reported that it was also common for Leman to make sexually explicit comments in the office, like pointing out male colleagues’ bulges in their crotches, or asking them questions like, “Are you a top or a bottom?”
“It’s masked in sarcasm, but it’s not sarcasm,” a former employee said, suggesting that Leman targeted younger, lower-level male employees.
Leman denies the allegations, of course.
“While my job as head writer is to come up with jokes — and, during that process, we can occasionally push the envelope — I’m horrified that some of my attempts at humor may have caused offense,” he said. “I have always aimed to treat everyone on the staff with kindness, inclusivity and respect. In my whole time on the show, to my knowledge, I’ve never had a single HR or inter-personal complaint made about me, and I am devastated beyond belief that this kind of malicious and misleading article could be published.”
Buzzfeed said that all of the ex-employees it interviewed asked to remain anonymous out of fear of retribution, and that many of them had voluntarily left the show.
Co-executive producer Jonathan Norman faces an accusation that he tried to perform oral sex on a male employee. The former employee claims Norman groomed him over a period of time by taking him to concerts and other work-related perks, and then one night attempted to fellate him.

AMAZING! More Than 100 Police Departments Pull Out of Security Detail for DNC
There seems to be some common sense that remains within the police departments.
I don't mean that as a jab at police, but rather at the country full of idiots who lack common sense. My point is that contrary to the rest of the country, at least many police departments have common sense because they're not stupid enough to put themselves in harm's way like the liberals are doing on the street.
