Steve Harvey has come to the defense of Ellen DeGeneres. This summer hasn’t been kind to Ellen with allegations of her show being a toxic workplace. That lead to sweeping personnel changes.
Appearing on People TV, Harvey said, “I’m going to say this about it: Ellen DeGeneres, the person that I know, that I’ve known for a number of years, that I saw back in the comedy club days, when we used to split time with the same management, all of this and what’s happening now, Ellen, the person, is probably one of the coolest and kindest people I’ve met in this business.”
Harvey continued, “people want to take something and make something out of everything. [Ellen] has no control over what every staff member does, what every producer does, you can’t control that. You don’t even know some of the stuff that’s happening.”
Harvey has offered DeGeneres advice during this time. He said, “I’ve told her, keep your head up. We’ve texted each other. But my first advice was Ellen got enough money to walk away. But, we’re in the cancel culture right now, man, everybody want to see everybody fall down, man. What happened, man?”
