Ellen DeGeneres is apologizing to her staff in the wake of allegations that her talk show fosters a toxic environment.

艾倫·德詹尼絲在受到指控說她的脫口秀節目營造了不良氛圍之后向員工道歉。

DeGeneres sent an email to staffers at "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Thursday, which was first reported by Variety.

《Variety》雜志報道稱,德詹尼絲周四給《艾倫秀》工作人員發送了一封電子郵件。

In the letter, DeGeneres states she is "disappointed" after reports by BuzzFeed in which current and former staff members alleged they faced intimidation and racism.

德詹尼絲在信中說看到BuzzFeed的報道她很“失望”,報道中有在職員工和離職員工聲稱遭受恐嚇和種族歧視。

"On day one of our show, I told everyone in our first meeting that 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' would be a place of happiness -- no one would ever raise their voice, and everyone would be treated with respect. Obviously, something changed, and I am disappointed to learn that this has not been the case. And for that, I am sorry. Anyone who knows me knows it's the opposite of what I believe and what I hoped for our show," DeGeneres wrote in part.

德詹尼絲在郵件中寫道:“在我們節目開播的第一天,我在第一次開會時就對大家說《艾倫秀》是一個充滿歡樂的地方,在這里沒人會大喊大叫,每個人都會受到尊重。顯然,現在情況有變。知道事實并非如此我很失望,對此我感到很抱歉。所有了解我的人都知道那些都不是我所支持的,也與我對節目的期望背道而馳。”

DeGeneres goes on to confirm that an internal investigation has been launched by the show's distributor, Warner Bros. Television.

德詹尼絲還確認了該節目的發行商華納兄弟電視公司已經展開內部調查。

"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," she said.

她說:“我們立即和華納兄弟一起展開內部調查,我們正在共同采取措施來糾正這些問題。隨著我們的發展壯大,我已經沒有能力來管理節目,讓別人來做我希望他們做好的工作。顯然有些人沒有做到。現在這些都會改變,我盡力保證不會再發生這種事。”

A statement from WarnerMedia released on Thursday stated, "Warner Bros. and Ellen DeGeneres take the recent allegations around the show's workplace culture very seriously," the statement read. "We hoped to determine the validity and extent of publicly reported allegations and to understand the full breadth of the show's day-to-day culture."

華納媒體周四發布的聲明中說:“華納兄弟和艾倫·德詹尼絲非常重視最近有關該節目工作場所文化的指控。我們希望確定公開報道的指控的有效性和程度,并全面了解該節目的日常工作風氣”。
