Stephen "tWitch" Boss is keeping it diplomatic when it comes to allegations of a toxic workplace on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Boss has been the DJ at the show since 2014, taking over for Tony Okungbowa. In an interview with Us Weekly, 37-year-old Boss defended his own experience at the show, stressing that there was "love."
"We can't speak too much legally about it, but I'll say this, there's been love," he said. "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."
"Ellen is obviously, like, you know, she promotes kindness but she is quite literally kind," he said. "Incredibly generous, but also like, still down -- and I'm not saying down-to-earth like the cliché, 'Oh, she's so, like, grounded.' No, but as in a real person, like, when the cameras go off and things like that."
His comments are different from Okungbowa's, who said he did experience a toxic environment during his time working on the show from 2003-2006 and from 2007-2013, in an Instagram post earlier this month.
Boss joins a number of celebrities who've publicly backed DeGeneres, including Kevin Hart, Katy Perry, and Ashton Kutcher. Meanwhile, Everybody Loves Raymond star Brad Garrett and Back to the Future actress Lea Thompson are among the public figures who have criticized DeGeneres.
Ellen DeGeneres has built her public talk-show reputation on kindness, dancing, and friendly celebrity interviews. But new claims about a reportedly toxic workplace culture at The Ellen DeGeneres Show have led to an internal investigation by Warner Media.
