Dozens Of Former “Ellen Show” Employees Say Executive Producers Engaged In Rampant Sexual Misconduct And Harassment
https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/kr ... llegations
Being asked to join the control room inside The Ellen DeGeneres Show is a coveted spot in Hollywood, but according to dozens of men and women who work behind the scenes, the office is a place where sexual harassment and misconduct by top executive producers runs rampant. One ex-employee said head writer and executive producer Kevin Leman asked him if he could give him a hand job or perform oral sex in a bathroom at a company party in 2013. Another said they separately saw Leman grab a production assistant’s penis. In May 2017, another former employee also said she saw Leman grope a production assistant in a car and kiss his neck. Nearly a dozen former employees, who range from longtime, senior-level employees to production assistants, said it was also common for Leman to make sexually explicit comments in the office, like pointing out male colleagues’ bulges in their crotches, or ask them questions like, “Are you a top or a bottom?” “It’s masked in sarcasm, but it’s not sarcasm,” a former employee said.

In all, 47 former employees who spoke to BuzzFeed News said Glavin led with intimidation and fear on a daily basis. One former employee said when they turned in their notice, Glavin flipped over a table and chair while screaming. Five former employees also said they saw Glavin use a button at his desk to remotely shut his office door “as an intimidation tactic” during reprimands

The door closing button sounds cool, but the rest not.

Yeah. It was endearing with Ron Swanson. Not so much with Matt Lauer and this dude.

Her producer is a big time "empathy and compassion" guy, all while being one of the biggest shithead cancel bullies on social media, so yeah this isn't the least bit surprising.

Too often those that are loudest are those that are most guilty.

Kevin Leman blocked his tweets.

There have been quite a few stories in recent years about male directors/producers sexually assaulting/harassing men on the projects they are working on. Singer is an obvious one. Hell, Terry Crews wasn't even safe. And of course, Hollywood's history in that regard, especially with younger men and boys, isn't pretty.
