Ellen DeGeneres Addresses Workplace Allegations and Changes Forthcoming in Staff Letter (Exclusive)
With the culture at her eponymous talk show under fire, Ellen DeGeneres is speaking out.
In a letter to her crew, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, DeGeneres addresses the alleged workplace misconduct, which was detailed in a Buzzfeed story published earlier this month. The widely circulated piece includes a host of former employees' anonymous accusations of racism, intimidation, unjust termination and an overall toxic work culture, perpetuated by the show's top producers. The report prompted an in-house investigation by Telepictures parent WarnerMedia, which is said to now be largely complete.
In her note, DeGeneres takes responsibility, insofar as the show bears her name, and insists that steps will be taken to "correct the issues" going forward. "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,” she writes. "That will now change and I'm committed to ensuring this does not happen again."
EXCLUSIVE: Ellen DeGeneres is telling show executives she's had enough and is ready to call it quits as staffers slam her apology and claim she's the problem and has 'enabled the toxic culture at the show to go on for so long'
In Portland, some Black activists frustrated with white protesters
A small group of Black teenage girls carrying megaphones stood in front of the federal courthouse in downtown Portland near midnight on Thursday facing a largely white band of protesters.
“I’m done with y’all focusing on all these white folk,” said 17-year-old Erandi, who asked to be identified only by her first name. “This is a Black Lives Matter movement.”
They are more organic than organized. Protesters chant: “George Floyd. Breonna Taylor. Black Lives Matter.” A microphone is passed around to whoever wants to speak. The scenes feel festive at times, with drumbeats and tambourines, and a grill that serves food at all hours. On one night, a man holding a microphone raps to the crowd: “On the Portland streets/We’re taking it back/Wearing a mask ‘cuz they shoot me with gas.”
But the reality on the ground is as murky as the nightly clouds of tear gas had been. There are no clear leaders or structure to these demonstrations, and as midnight looms the focus moves to a small band of mainly white people trying to attack the courthouse throwing fireworks and objects at police and agents over a fence guarding the building.
Trump campaign leans into Goya controversy in new Spanish ads
President Trump’s reelection campaign is leaning into the recent controversy over Goya Foods with a slate of Spanish-language television and radio advertisements as he seeks to cut Joe Biden’s margin with Hispanic voters.
The Trump campaign announced Wednesday that a television ad highlighting “Democrats’ shameful smear campaign against Goya Foods, a beloved Hispanic-owned family business” and two radio ads will begin airing in Florida, and a third radio ad will be released “in other regions.”
The ads appears to cast Democrats as socialists and extremists, claiming that the party members are "too extreme for Hispanic Americans."
“From Democrats’ support for socialism, to cutting school choice and police funding, they are just too extreme for Hispanic Americans—and Joe Biden is too weak to stand up for us. Now, with the left's assault on Goya, it's clear that not even your abuela's Sazón would be safe in Joe Biden's America,” Latinos for Trump said in a statement in announcing the ads.
“Oh man, all these leftists are the same. They’re so intolerant. Imagine if they get more power,” says one woman in one of the radio ads set to air in Florida. “I came here to be free.

Black man holding an American flag tells protesters in Portland 'none of you guys represent Black lives' as he tries to protect the Federal Courthouse from vandals
A black man holding an American flag has been filmed telling protesters in Portland 'none of you guys represent Black lives'.
The unidentified demonstrator stood outside the Federal Courthouse on Saturday evening, footage shared on Twitter shows. In the clip he attempts to protect the building from vandals who tore down a fence.
Portland has seen nearly two months of nightly protests since the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Late Saturday, demonstrators broke into a building, set it on fire and started dumpster fires, police said.
Hollywood's identity crisis: Actors, writers and producers warn of 'reverse racism' in the film industry which has created a 'toxic' climate for anyone who is a white, middle-age man
A revolution is under way. White actors are being fired. Edicts from studio bosses make it clear that only minorities – racial and sexual – can be given jobs.
A new wave of what has been termed by some as anti-white prejudice is causing writers, directors and producers to fear they will never work again. One described the current atmosphere as 'more toxic than Chernobyl', with leading actors afraid to speak out amid concern they will be labelled racist.
The first sign came with one of the most powerful black directors in Hollywood, Oscar-winning Jordan Peele – the man behind box office hits such as Get Out and Us – stated in public that he did not want to hire a leading man who was white.
'I don't see myself casting a white dude as the lead in my movie,' Peele said. 'Not that I don't like white dudes. But I've seen that movie before.'

Country Music Can No Longer Hide Its Problems
Perhaps such cravings for the regular ol’ times explain why country music, replete with visions of barbecues and backwoods, has thrived during our stay-indoors spring and summer. Ever since America’s shutdown began, almost all styles of music have lost streaming listenership. Country’s popularity, on the other hand, has risen: The genre has averaged 11.1 percent more plays since mid-March. There are multiple theories for why this is, but what seems true in any case is that country’s love for a feeling of normalcy is alluring. As a slew of recent scandals and scuffles have demonstrated, however, not even Nashville can maintain the status quo anymore.
While pop tends to envision one big night where you transcend your boring condition, and hip-hop often touts material success turning an ordinary life into an extraordinary one, country fetishizes the day-after-day realities of homes, highways, and beer halls. There are exceptions, but typically it’s a genre in which work and family and place all are held up as things that must be defended. You can hear the fierce attachment to the familiar, for example, in the new single “More Than My Hometown,” from the hitmaker Morgan Wallen. The Tennessee singer describes a storybook romance with some woman, but when she wants to move to the city, he bids her farewell, explaining, “I can't love you more than my hometown.”

Suspect in fatal shooting of Bothell police officer ordered held without bail
A judge found probable cause Wednesday to hold a 37-year-old man on investigation of first-degree murder in connection with the shooting death of Bothell police Officer Jonathan Shoop on Monday night.
A witness shot video that shows Washington outside his car as the patrol vehicle approached the intersection and stopped, the statement says. Other witnesses later told police the driver yelled, “Come on, pigs,” as he quickly moved around the front of the patrol car and fired two shots into the police SUV through the driver’s-side window, according to the statement.
Shoop was shot in the head and died at the scene, the statement says. His field-training officer, who returned fire from inside the patrol car, suffered a graze wound to the head, it says.

15 female ex-Redskins employees allege sexual harassment, bombshell report says
Fifteen female former employees who worked for the Redskins told The Washington Post that they were sexually harassed while working for the organization, the newspaper published in a bombshell report Thursday.
According to The Post, the team declined a request to release 15 of the former female employees from non-disclosure agreements so they could speak on the record.

Emily Applegate, who worked as a marketing coordinator before leaving in 2015, was the only woman who spoke to the newspaper on the record about her experience working for the Redskins. The allegations, which reportedly ran from 2006 to 2019, would fall under unwelcome overtures or comments of a sexual nature, and exhortations to wear revealing clothing and flirt with clients to close sales deals, the paper reported.
"It was the most miserable experience of my life," Applegate told The Post. "And we all tolerated it, because we knew if we complained -- and they reminded us of this -- there were 1,000 people out there who would take our job in a heartbeat."

How Jewish Twitter users and celebrities took down a virtual anti-Semitic mob
When I saw “#JewishPrivilege” was trending on Twitter last week, I cringed. Whenever something on a Jewish topic trends, a swarm of anti-Semites surely abound. This time was no exception: White nationalists had created the hashtag to spread anti-Semitic conspiracies about Jews being “privileged” — that we control the media, the banks and the world.
Jews from the Middle East like myself will never be able to assimilate into the white majority.
Leftist voices soon joined in, perhaps because the hashtag had co-opted the term of “white privilege” that is used in the social justice movement. Seemingly progressive Twitter users soon piled on with false claims that Jews don’t face any discrimination, while also suggesting they are responsible for the discrimination and other ills many minorities face.
While I’ve seen countless ignorant ideas spread on Twitter, #JewishPrivilege uniquely terrified me. Unlike the random pockets of online hate speech that I’m used to, this felt like an organized attack — as if everyone, from left to right, was in agreement that Jewish people are to be blamed for all that is wrong in the world.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: Where Is the Outrage Over Anti-Semitism in Sports and Hollywood?
Recent incidents of anti-Semitic tweets and posts from sports and entertainment celebrities are a very troubling omen for the future of the Black Lives Matter movement, but so too is the shocking lack of massive indignation. Given the New Woke-fulness in Hollywood and the sports world, we expected more passionate public outrage. What we got was a shrug of meh-rage.
When reading the dark squishy entrails of popular culture, meh-rage in the face of sustained prejudice is an indisputable sign of the coming Apatholypse: apathy to all forms of social justice. After all, if it’s OK to discriminate against one group of people by hauling out cultural stereotypes without much pushback, it must be OK to do the same to others. Illogic begets illogic.
Ice Cube’s June 10 daylong series of tweets, which involved some creepy symbols and images, in general implied that Jews were responsible for the oppression of blacks. NFL player DeSean Jackson tweeted out several anti-Semitic messages, including a quote he incorrectly thought was from Hitler (not your go-to guy for why-can’t-we-all-get-along quotes) stating that Jews had a plan to “extort America” and achieve “world domination.” Isn’t that SPECTRE’s job in James Bond movies?

Why Hispanic business owners are urging you to BUY-cott Goya products
The Goya Foods boycott is an insult to Hispanics, America’s largest minority group. Politicians and pundits — some Hispanic, many others painfully woke-white — are calling for a boycott of the largest Hispanic food manufacturer and distributor in the nation, a company that employs more than 4,000 people.
The Bodega and Small Business Association, which represents thousands of New York City bodegas, is not taking this lying down. We are urging our stores and customers to stock up on all of Goya’s great products.

VIDEO: Black conservative activist rips 'cultural Marxism' of Black Lives Matter rioters who violently invade restaurant right in front of him
A black conservative activist took video of a violent Black Lives Matter demonstration at a Dallas restaurant where he was eating with friends over the weekend and narrated the scene as it unfolded into violence — to the point where he said police arrived and deployed tear gas and pepper spray.
As the demonstrators chanted and cursed, Felder noted families seated with young children who were enduring the torrent of verbal abuse and profanity.
"They're out here right now trying to act a fool," he said of the demonstrators who soon began advancing on the tables and the restaurant staff and throwing objects and shoving those in their way.
"Here it is, see?" Felder observed. "They create the unrest, and then they get upset when someone actually speaks up for themselves. That's the problem."
