Celebrities React to Ellen DeGeneres Allegations
Adding their two cents. Scooter Braun, Brad Garrett, James Woods and more celebrities weighed in on Ellen DeGeneres amid allegations that her talk show fostered a toxic work environment. BuzzFeed News reported in July that 10 former staffers of The Ellen DeGeneres Show alleged they faced racism, fear and intimidation behind the scenes of the Emmy-winning series. “That ‘be kind’ bulls–t only happens when the cameras are on. It’s all for show,” one former employee told the outlet. “I know they give money to people and help them out, but it’s for show.” While the ex-employees agreed that the behavior was due to the executive producers and senior staffers, they believe the Finding Dory star, 62, should have intervened. “If she wants to have her own show and have her name on the show title, she needs to be more involved to see what’s going on,” another former staffer told BuzzFeed. “I think the executive producers surround her and tell her, ‘Things are going great, everybody’s happy,’ and she just believes that, but it’s her responsibility to go beyond that.” DeGeneres addressed the allegations and apologized to her staff in a lengthy letter on Thursday, July 30. “On day one of our show, I told everyone in our first meeting that The Ellen DeGeneres Show would be a place of happiness – no one would ever raise their voice, and everyone would be treated with respect,” she wrote in a letter obtained by Us Weekly.

"My artist of my life is Beyoncé and this album to me, the Lemonade album, was just so monumental, Beyoncé," Adele said in her acceptance speech. "It was so monumental and so well thought out and so beautiful and soul-baring and we all got to see another side to you that you don’t always let us see, and we appreciate that. And all us artists here adore you. You are our light!”
Now, that's all well and good, but this new photo raises more than a few questions. Did Adele already have that top, by sheer coincidence? Did she overnight it, considering Black Is King was just released on Friday, just to take that photo? Did she get early access to the film through the shadowy cabal of celebrity? And seriously,
What many Africans are hoping to see in Beyonce's 'Black is King' (Opinion) .
Moky Makura discusses the backlash Beyonce has received for the "Black is King" trailers and says that the trap that Beyoncé's trailers fell into is the stereotypical (albeit visually compelling) story of a primitive continent that hasn't advanced much, which frustratingly still dominates too many western perceptions. But, Makura says, we have to hope that the full version of the visual album will represent Africans in our plurality.In March 2018, a month after the film "Black Panther" was released, the fictional country Wakanda was the fourth most-mentioned African country on Twitter -- after Egypt, South Africa and Kenya -- according to a 2019 study by the University of Southern California.
