Katy Perry and Kevin Hart are the latest celebrities to try and salvage Ellen DeGeneres’ image but are being torn to shreds for ignoring the accusations against the talk show host.

Ellen is clearly in the middle of a PR campaign to try and save herself amid numerous reports of a toxic workplace including racism, sexual misconduct by producers and claims she’s just an awful person.

The talk show host’s team appears to be asking big names to show public support for Ellen amid the scandal. One of the first people was Ellen’s wife Portia de Rossi who said, “I Stand By Ellen.”

Katy Perry, who is a frequent guest on Ellen, tweet out her opinion on the host. She said, “I know I can’t speak for anyone else’s experience besides my own but I want to acknowledge that I have only ever had positive takeaways from my time with Ellen & on the @theellenshow . I think we all have witnessed the light & continual fight for equality that she has brought to the world through her platform for decades. Sending you love & a hug, friend @TheEllenShow ♥️”

One fan commented, “I think maybe she was nice to you because you are a celeb. something to consider.” Another warned, “OMG NOO QUEEN DELETE YOU'RE GONNA GET DRAGGED.”

A little bit later, Kevin Hart decided to post in support of Ellen. He shared a photo of himself with Ellen captioned, “It’s crazy to see my friend go thru what she’s going thru publicly. I have known Ellen for years and I can honestly say that she’s one of the dopest people on the fucking planet. She has treated my family and my team with love and respect from day 1…. Love you for life Ellen.”

Interesting to note, Ellen gave Kevin a platform to defend himself when he was catching heat for homophobic remarks.

Fans were quick to scold Kevin writing, “What about the people coming forward against Ellen that AREN’T A-list celebrities with money and status?”

One pointed out, “Just because she was nice to you and yours don’t mean it was like that for everyone.”
