Steve Harvey has become the most recent supporter of Ellen Degeneres amid the behind-the-scenes scandal of The Ellen Show.
The allegations against Ellen Degeneres are still being investigated, and Steve Harvey, in an interview with PEOPLE (the TV Show!) , has come to her defense.
He stated, “I’m going to say this about it: Ellen DeGeneres, the person that I know, that I’ve known for several years, that I saw back in the comedy club days when we used to split time with the same management, all of this and what’s happening now, Ellen, the person, is probably one of the coolest and kindest people I’ve met in this business.”
He continues by saying, “If I have a conversation with you, I know if you got racist tendency somewhere in you because it radiates. I can feel it. I’ve been around for a long time, man. That’s not Ellen DeGeneres. That’s just not her, period,” Harvey later said, adding of DeGeneres: “You make it like that if you want to. But if you try to make it that way, it’s because you don’t know her. I know her. And that’s the feeling I have.”
He believes that Ellen will make a robust comeback in the upcoming season premiere of her show, which will be premiering today. Ellen Degeneres made a statement saying, “I’m hearing that some people felt that I wasn’t kind or too short with them, or too impatient. I apologize to anybody if I’ve hurt your feelings in any way.” She continued by saying, “I can’t wait to get back to work and back to our studio.”
