Katy Perry has gone out on a limb and is defending her friend Ellen DeGeneres after the talk show host has been accused of harboring an abusive and toxic environment on the set of her show.

The 'Roar' singer took to Twitter to defend the talk show host on Tuesday, and point out how much work Ellen has done in the continued fight for equality.

"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," Perry wrote.

"I think we all have witnessed the light & continual fight for equality that she has brought to the world through her platform for decades," Katy continued.

"Sending you love & a hug, friend @TheEllenShow ❤️," she added.

The singer is the second high-profile celebrity to come forward in defense of DeGeneres after Justin Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, came out this week and warned against attacking Ellen for all the issues on the set of her show.

As we reported, 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' is currently under investigation by Warner Bros. after a host of complaints regarding the abusive environment on the set of her show.

Ellen recently apologized for the atmosphere on set in a letter to staffers, and claimed that she is "committed to ensuring this does not happen again."

Katy's defense also came on the heels of Ellen's wife, Portia de Rossi, breaking her silence on the situation, posting a banner on Instagram with reads "I Stand By Ellen."

Portia captioned the social media post with, "To all our fans....we see you. Thank you for your support."

Last week, Ellen seemed to deflect some of the blame of the toxic environment on executive staff members, and it appears a few maybe let go.

"My name is on the show and everything we do and I take responsibility for that," Ellen wrote.

She continued, "Alongside Warner Bros, we immediately began an internal investigation and we are taking steps, together, to correct the issues. As we've grown exponentially, I've not been able to stay on top of everything and relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I'd want them done. Clearly some didn't. That will now change and I'm committed to ensuring this does not happen again."
