Stephen “tWitch” Boss, the disc jockey of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” broke his silence about widespread allegations of toxicity on the show, alleging that there is “love” behind the scenes.
“You can’t talk too much about it legally, but I’ll say that, there’s been love,” the 37-year-old dancer told Us Weekly. “Obviously, there are some things to deal with, but from my point of view and from many others, there has been love. I will only leave it until there comes a time when we can address ourselves more publicly.
“There has been love and it will continue to be love.”
Boss is the latest celebrity to show up and defend the host, joining Kevin Hart, Scooter Braun, Katy Perry and more. But stars like Brad Garrett, Lea Thompson, Wayne Dupre and his former DJ on the show, Tony Okungbowa, have backed up claims that he created a toxic work environment.
DeGeneres̵7; wife, Portia de Rossi, says the “Finding Dory” star is “doing very well” in the midst of research and investigation. Maybe it’s because in his apology he blamed the producers of his show.
“As we have grown exponentially, I have not been able to be at the forefront of everything and trust others to do their job because they knew I would want to do them,” he wrote in a letter to his staff.
“Obviously some don’t.”
