DJ Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss has broken his silence on the allegations of a toxic work environment on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The popular chat show is currently undergoing an internal investigation by WarnerMedia, after BuzzFeed News published accounts from current and former staff members, who alleged they were subjected to a “toxic work environment” while working on the show.

The show’s DJ defended Ellen amid the allegations, stating there has “been love” on the set.

“We can’t speak too much legally about it, but I’ll say this, there’s been love,” he told Us Weekly.

The popular DJ has worked on the show since 2014, taking over from Tony Okungbowa.

“Obviously there’s some things to address, but from my standpoint and from countless others, there’s been love,” he continued.

“I’ll just leave it at that until there’s a time where we can address more publicly. There’s been love and there’ll will continue to be love.”

He also noted that while he is “of course” anxious to get back to work, he will also “miss this time” at home with wife Allison Holker and their children.

Earlier this month, former show DJ Tony Okungbowa claimed he felt “toxicity” working on the set – stating that he “stands by” his former colleagues.

The 52-year-old addressed the recent allegations on Instagram  – admitting he “did experience and feel the toxicity of the environment.”

“Hey Guys,” he wrote, “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.”

“I stand with my former colleagues in their quest to create a healthier and more inclusive workplace as the show moves forward,” he concluded the post.

Ellen addressed the ongoing investigation in a candid letter to staff – and stated that she was “disappointed” to learn of the accusations.

“As someone who was judged and nearly lost everything for just being who I am, I truly understand and have deep compassion for those being looked at differently, or treated unfairly, not equal, or worse – disregarded.”

“To think that any one of you felt that way is awful to me,” she wrote.
