Last week there was no one by her side, but slowly one by one, A-listers have started coming out of the woodwork to defend Ellen.

Allegation after allegation has come to light since early July, the focus being the toxic environment of the ‘Ellen show’s’ set.

Some of the accusations are quite serious, with sexual abuse, harassment and racism claims directed at the executive producers of the show.

The likes of Katy Perry, Kevin Hart, Ashton Kutcher, Alec Baldwin and obviously her wife Portia have openly supported Ellen, in a way that’s ground people’s gears.

Saying things akin to ‘she’s always been nice to me’ to defend Ellen which obviously has a very basic flaw.

This whole ‘thing’ started because staff felt that Ellen was negatively treating those considered ‘beneath her’, and being a celebrity isn’t that.

ESPECIALLY for a show that relies heavily on celebrity presence to be successful…. you know?
