Ellen DeGeneres' apology comes as allegations of sexual misconduct are being leveled against the show's top executives.
Update 8/18/2020: In an announcement from Warner Bros. on Monday two more executives were said to have "parted ways" with the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
In addition to Ed Glavin, executive producer Kevin Leman has now been ousted as well as co-executive producer Jonathan Norman, who is accused of having "groomed" an employee by taking him to various concerts and events that were loosely work-related before attempting to perform oral sex on him.
Remaining on as the show's executives are veterans Andy Lassner, Mary Connelly, and Derek Westervelt, along with DeGeneres herself.
It seems that every week there's a new story that casts Ellen DeGeneres in an unflattering light.
It started with her problematic friendship with George W. Bush, and has more recently included reports of her cruelty toward strangers, the way her show's staff was left feeling abandoned during the lockdown, and the generally toxic work environment that current and former crew members have reported.

Blake Neff is just the latest secret racist to be exposed and ousted from Tucker Carlson's orbit.
On Friday Blake Neff—the top writer for Tucker Carlson Tonight—resigned after years of his racist, sexist, and homophobic Internet posts were exposed.
As a result, Tucker Carlson now has an opening for a new top writer who is better at hiding their secret racism. But maybe that assessment isn't fair. After all, Carlson isn't like the rest of Fox News.
Sure, he earns millions of dollars a year telling his viewers to be afraid of Democrats because if they get into office "people who supported Donald Trump will be punished" and that "there's never been an American political party as radical and as angry as the Democrats are now."
