Another ex-staffer who used to work on The Ellen DeGeneres Show has spoken out about their unpleasant experience on set.
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.
A former camera assistant on the program, who asked to remain anonymous, opened up about their experience on Brisbane radio show Stav, Abby & Matt.
“I worked there for a little over a year. It’s kind of like The Devil Wears Prada. Everyone is trying to make it to the [end of a] year,” they said.
“It’s just a badge of honour to have that and have it on your résumé.”
The Devil Wears Prada was released in 2006, and follows college graduate (Anne Hathaway) who works for a domineering fashion magazine editor (Meryl Streep) in New York City.
When asked about their interactions with Ellen, they claimed: “I wasn’t even allowed in the same room as her. Most people are told, ‘When Ellen enters the room, you and your entire crew need to leave.'”
“Sometimes her bodyguards come forward first and you kind of see them and you know to leave and that’s it.”
The news comes after Ellen addressed the ongoing investigation in a candid letter to staff earlier this month.
