Stephen “tWitch” Boss, the set DJ of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” broke his silence on widespread allegations of toxicity at the talk show, claiming there’s “love” behind the scenes.
“We can’t speak too much legally about it, but I’ll say this, there’s been love,” the dancer, 37, told Us Weekly. “Obviously there’s some things to address, but from my standpoint and from countless others, there’s been love. I’ll just leave it at that until there’s a time where we can address more publicly.
“There’s been love and there will continue to be love.”
Boss is the latest celebrity to come forward and defend the host, joining Kevin Hart, Scooter Braun, Katy Perry and more. But stars such as Brad Garrett, Lea Thompson, Wayne Dupre and her former show DJ, Tony Okungbowa, have supported the claims that she created a toxic work environment.
DeGeneres’ wife, Portia de Rossi, claims the “Finding Dory” star is “doing great” amid the backlash and show investigation. Perhaps it’s because in her apology statement she blamed her show’s producers.
“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,” she wrote in a letter to her staff.
“Clearly some didn’t.”
