Ellen DeGeneres’ former talk show sidekick DJ Tony Okungbowa is speaking out about the “toxicity” he felt on set.
DJ Tony Okungbowa, who worked on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” from 2003 until 2013, released a statement on social media amid the recent scandal.
He wrote, “Hey Guys, I hope you are all keeping safe out there during these trying times. I have been getting calls asking me about the Ellen Degeneres Show and I would like to address the time I spent there. I was on air talent from 2003-2006 and from 2007 -2013. While I am grateful for the opportunity it afforded me, I did experience and feel the toxicity of the environment and I stand with my former colleagues in their quest to create a healthier and more inclusive workplace as the show moves forward.”
