Ellen Responds to the Backlash/Apology
In September 2020, the Ellen DeGeneres show returned to television for the first time since the accusations. She began the broadcast with a mea culpa and confession. Ellen apologized for her actions and said that investigations had resulted in necessary changes to her program.
She stated, “It’s difficult to be the ‘good lady’!” Ellen said she aspired for all her employees to feel good and proud while working on her program. Despite her concessions, some of her workers and followers still believed she was insincere.
