Celebs speak out in support of Ellen DeGeneres

Some of the biggest celebs have spoken out in support of Ellen DeGeneres.

The chat show host has been facing backlash following countless reports of workplace problems from former and current employees

Ashton Kutcher

Taking to Twitter, Ashton shared his experience with Ellen, 'She & her team have only treated me & my team w/ respect & kindness.'

'She never pandered to celebrity which I always saw as a refreshing honesty.'

'When things aren’t right she handles it and fixes,' he wrote.

In a follow-up tweet, Ashton asked his followers to like the tweet if they've ever made mistakes in their life.

He asked them to retweet if they've, 'learned from [their] mistakes.'

And he asked them to comment if they think they're, 'perfect.'

Katy Perry

Meanwhile, Katy Perry tweeted, '1/2 I know I can’t speak for anyone else’s experience besides my own but I want to acknowledge that I have only ever had positive takeaways from my time with Ellen & on the @theellenshow'

'I think we all have witnessed the light & continual fight for equality that she has brought to the world through her platform for decades.'

'Sending you love & a hug, friend @TheEllenShow,' she finished. 

Kevin Hart

The comedian took to Instagram with a picture of himself on The Ellen Show

He captioned it, 'It’s crazy to see my friend go thru what she’s going thru publicly.'

'I have known Ellen for years and I can honestly say that she’s one of the dopest people on the fu**ing planet.'

Kevin continued, 'She has treated my family and my team with love and respect from day 1.'

'The internet has become a crazy world of negativity....we are falling in love with peoples down fall. It’s honestly sad...When did we get here?'

'I stand by the ones that I know and that I love,' the actor wrote. 

He went on, 'Looking forward to the future where we get back to loving one another....this hate sh*t has to stop.'

'Hopefully it goes out of style soon....This post is not meant to disregard the feelings of others and their experiences....'

'It’s simply to show what my experiences have been with my friend. Love you for life Ellen...' Kevin finished.
