An Ellen DeGeneres Show executive producer is setting the record straight on rumors surrounding the future of the longtime series.
US Magazine reported that Lassner took to Twitter to shoot down claims that the show is being cancelled.
"Me: I really think 2020 is gonna turn around and start getting better", Lassner captioned his post on Thursday, July 30.
A fan replied to the tweet and said, "I seriously wish you well".
Warner Bros has said it will investigate after a BuzzFeed News report alleged a toxic work culture.
After interviewing dozens of current and former staffers about the work environment on the show, WarnerMedia released a statement that the company was "disappointed that the primary findings of the investigation indicated some deficiencies related to the show's day-to-day management".
Braun said he felt compelled to speak up about DeGeneres since he knows "first hand how she helps so many when we are watching and when we are not".
"That "be kind" bulls-t only happens when the cameras are on".
In the article, multiple individuals who previously worked on the daytime talk show - who asked to remain anonymous for fear of retribution - detailed incidents of harassment and sexual misconduct they say they experienced with head writer and executive producer Kevin Leman, executive producer Ed Glavin, and co-executive producer Jonathan Norman. "I know they give money to people and help them out, but it's for show".
He claimed to know "more than one" individual that was "treated horribly" by DeGeneres, adding that her behavior is "common knowledge".
In a letter to employees obtained by TheWrap, DeGeneres vowed to "correct the issues".
However, the backlash only got worse after the letter was sent, as claims of sexual misconduct came to light. The source argued the British star's smart reinvention of his "graveyard" slot, with viral segments like Carpool Karaoke giving his show global recognition.
