• Twitter users have mixed opinions on whether Ellen DeGeneres should be canceled or not
  • "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" is under internal investigation following the toxic workplace complaints
  • DeGeneres apologized to her staff in a letter for failing to make the set a "place of happiness" to everyone

Ellen DeGeneres is in the middle of a "cancel culture" debate after the host came under severe scrutiny over reports of toxic work culture on the sets of her popular talk show "The Ellen DeGeneres Show.".

"The Ellen DeGeneres Show" host has faced a number of controversies in the past months after several people came forward to share their not-so-kind encounter with her.

Just recently, DeGeneres' show was subjected to internal investigation after several former employees complained about its alleged toxic workplace. Now the host has become a hot topic on social media as many people reflect on whether she should be canceled or not amid the investigation, and Twitter users have mixed reactions to the issue.

"HOPEFULLY!!!!," one wrote.

"God, I hope so. Elitist snob," @SNM696969 added.

Meanwhile, many also believe that DeGeneres is too influential and popular to be affected by the cancel culture.

"There is no way that she will be canceled," @darealbigsizzle commented.

"Nope. Just like Kimmel and other Democrats she'll get a pass," @DebiCarideo added.

Weeks prior to putting DeGeneres' show under investigation, 10 former staffers and one current employee who wished to remain anonymous spoke with BuzzFeed News and shared their horrible experience on set. They criticized the show for promoting kindness but treating their employees differently.

"Some of the producers talk openly in public about addiction and mental health awareness, but they’re the reason there’s a stigma," a former employee said. "They definitely don’t practice what they preach with the ‘be kind’ mantra.”

DeGeneres just addressed the toxic workplace claims by writing a letter to her staff on Thursday. The host apologized to them for failing to make the set a "place of happiness" to everyone.

"Obviously, something changed, and I am disappointed to learn that this has not been the case. And for that, I am sorry. Anyone who knows me knows it’s the opposite of what I believe and what I hoped for our show," DeGeneres wrote in a letter obtained by Us Weekly.
