Katy Perry had spoken out in support of host Ellen DeGeneres last month.
In a new interview, Katy has doubled down on her support for the host. She is supporting Ellen amidst claims of sexual misconduct behind-the-scenes of her show.
The singer told DailyPop that she did not want to undermine anybody else’s experience. She assured she only wanted to speak from her own experience. Katy added that she has about 100 million followers and she knows everyone is not going to agree with her. She further said she is not here to make everyone agree with her.
The TV show host is facing allegations of discrimination, bullying, and fostering a ‘toxic environment’ behind the scenes. Katy Perry took to her social media handle to defend Ellen and said she cannot speak for anyone else’s experience besides her own.
The singer clarifies that she has only ever had positive experiences with the talk show host. She continues acknowledging that everybody has witnessed the continual fight for equality that she has brought to the world. Katy further says that Ellen has used her platform to bring the light and sends her love and regards.
Katy is expecting her first child with Orlando and is due to give birth soon. She has been on The Ellen Show. The singer’s last appearance on the show was back in September 2019.
Amid all the allegations about Ellen DeGeneres’s talk show and the host, many famous celebrities have come in support of Ellen. She issued an apology last week to her staff amid the claims of sexual misconduct behind the scenes. She acknowledged the claims against the show and herself.
After allegations of sexual misconduct in the workplace, Ellen addressed the claims in a letter to her staff. Although, Ellen was not accused of the misconduct and an investigation was also launched.
Ellen’s Heartfelt Message
Ellen wrote that on the first day of her show, she told everyone that the place will be of happiness and no one will ever raise their voice. She addressed the issue saying something changed and expressed her disappointment to learn that this was not happening. The talk show host goes on to apologize saying anyone who knows her knows it is not what she believes in.
Ellen added that she could not have the success without any of their contributions and that her name is on the show because of which she will take complete responsibility. She said, “Alongside Warner Bros., we immediately began an internal investigation and we are taking steps, together, to correct the issues.”
The host continued, “As we’ve grown exponentially, I’ve not been able to stay on top of everything and relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I’d want them done. Clearly some didn’t. That will now change and I’m committed to ensuring this does not happen again.”
Her talk show is under investigation and they have found few gaps here and there which they regretted to inform. But, however, Ellen has gotten a ton of support from her friends on social media.
The support comes after the show faced a number of allegations against the workplace environment of The Ellen Show. Buzzfeed News published an article in July were former and current employees of Ellen spoke about the toxic workplace.
