British comedian James Corden may be first in line to replace Ellen DeGeneres if she exits her talk show in the wake of bullying and harassment claims, according to reports.
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.
Staffers with "The Ellen Show" are "freaking out" over the reported possibility of Ellen DeGeneres exiting the show following allegations by employees of a "toxic work environment", the USA weekly magazine suggested.
"I seriously wish you well", the fan tweeted.
Lassner replied: "Nobody is going off the air".
Warner Bros. Television sent an internal memo last week informing staffers that WarnerMedia would be seeking the services of an independent third-party firm, which will interview current and former employees about their experiences behind the scenes on the popular show, after one current and 10 former employees anonymously opened about their experience on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in an article. This directly goes against DeGeneres' mantra of telling people to "be kind" to one another, something she says at the end of every episode.
"That "be kind" bulls-t only happens when the cameras are on".
The company said "not all of the allegations were corroborated" but it was "disappointed that the primary findings of the investigation indicated some deficiencies related to the show's day-to-day management". "Know more than one who were treated horribly by her. Common knowledge". And for that, I am sorry.
"She feels she can't go on and the only way to recover her personal brand from this is to shut down the show", the insider was quoted as saying.
