Both the daytime television host and her talk show have come under fire in recent months after current and former employees were cited in reports describing a toxic work environment and alleging sexual harassment and misconduct by executive producers on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

Braun, who manages stars like Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande, defended the comedian in a series of tweets on Friday.

"People love to take shots at people. They love to see people fall. How quickly so many forget," he wrote.

Braun continued to call DeGeneres a "kind, thoughtful, courageous human being who stands for what is right" and "has helped change the views for equality."

The entrepreneur explained that he felt compelled to speak up since he has a "first hand" perspective of how DeGeneres "helps so many" both on and off her show.

While Braun spoke fondly of DeGeneres, other celebrities did not.

"Everybody Loves Raymond" star Brad Garrett shared Variety's article about a letter DeGeneres sent to her staff. In the letter, she personally apologized for their negative experiences and said she was unable to closely manage the show as it grew in recent years.

"Sorry but it comes from the top ⁦@TheEllenShow," Garrett, who has appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" several times, wrote on Friday.

He claimed to know "more than one" individual that was "treated horribly" by DeGeneres, adding that her behavior is "common knowledge."

"Back to the Future" actress Lea Thompson backed up Garrett's claim that the host's mistreatment is widely known.

  A radio host said he was given specific instructions while working with Ellen DeGeneres: 'You don't talk to her, you don't approach her' "The producers called us aside and said 'You don't talk to her, you don't approach her, you don't look at her,'" Neil Breen said of his experience.During a segment on his radio show "4BC Breakfast," Neil Breen said he worked as an executive producer on the Australian "Today" show at the time.

"True story. It is," she tweeted in response to People's report of the "Everybody Loves Raymond" actor's tweet.

Celebrities aren't the only individuals calling out DeGeneres for her behavior.

In March, a comedian named Kevin T. Porter called the host "one of the meanest people alive" and asked his Twitter followers to submit "insane stories you've heard about Ellen being mean" in exchange for a $2 donation to the LA Regional Food Bank.

He received more than 2,000 responses on the thread.

In late July, Variety reported that WarnerMedia, the company that distributes "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," had launched an internal investigation conducted by an employee relations group and a third-party firm to look into employees' allegations.

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."
