Katy Perry has commented on her defence of Ellen DeGeneres after she received criticism for her remarks.

Stephen "tWitch" Boss, the long time DJ for Ellen DeGeneres' syndicated talk program, is speaking out about allegations of toxicity on the set. Katy told LA Times that she wanted to speak from her own experience with the talk show host amidst behind the scenes drama at the talk show.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show is collapsing before our eyes, with sexual harassment scandals and vanishing ratings, and the generally irrelevant, one-time popular radio host Howard Stern has advice for her.

Ellen DeGeneres has since released a video where she apologized to all her staff.

DeGeneres' show has been subjected to an internal investigation after several current and former staff complained about its toxic workplace.

As the fallout from reports of the alleged "toxic work environment" at The Ellen DeGeneres Show continues, some of Ellen's fellow famous friends (ahem, Katy Perry and Kevin Hart) have gushed about her and stood by her side. Despite the backlash, Perry still supports DeGeneres because she only has positive experiences with her while stressing that her social media post wasn't meant to undermine other people's stories.

"We can't speak too much legally about it, but I'll say this, there's been love". There's been love and there'll will continue to be love, ' Boss stated. "Obviously there is some factors to address, but from my standpoint and from plenty of others, there is been appreciate".

"This is a question that I received many, many times from friends and family when I worked on the show and people are always excited to know "have you met her?" No".

So, to clear Phase 3 has become more critical, but it is assumed that the collateral damage is less than the release of a vaccine. Over 140 doctors, 300 nurses, and many more administrative and technical support staff helped to facilitate the vaccine trial.

A number of staff members on the talk show spoke anonymously to Buzzfeed claiming they had experienced intimidation and racism.

But Perry, who is now gearing up to release her fifth studio album Smile, leapt to DeGeneres' defence in a much-maligned two-part tweet.

"Please get out of the "she's nice to me so she couldn't have done it" mindset", one user wrote.

"It arrived after employees in her series hit at the apology letter that she sent out a month, branding her a" bogus" and promising anybody who listened to her on the continuing issues" would have been terminated".

DeGeneres is one of the biggest names on US TV and has hosted the self-titled show since 2003.

"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", The Washington Post quoted Ellen as saying in her apology statement.

"I promise to do my part in continuing to push myself and everyone around me to learn and grow".

'We can't speak excessive lawfully about it, however I'll state this, there's been love, ' Boss started.
