The scandal hit in 2020 and completely derailed the show’s “Be Kind” motto.
Several anonymous employees have come forward and accused The Ellen Show of enabling a culture of “racism, fear and intimidation.”
As you can imagine, the toxic workplace allegations spread like wildfire across the internet, and many came after tWitch to stand by her. Ellen DeGeneres.
“People looked at her like, ‘Why are you still supporting this woman?’ Hall said, and I think there was a lot of pressure on him.

While Hall isn’t sure that’s the only reason tWitch decided to take his own life, he believes it may have contributed to his friend’s state of mind in the months leading up to his death.
Witch died last month from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
“I don’t know what happened in his life that (could) make him make that decision, but I understand. Now, when I’m online some days like now, if I was in a bad situation where this abuse goes on for years and years and years, there’s only so much a human being can take,” Hall admitted.
The reality TV star recently opened up about the online backlash she received after the premiere of Real Friends in WeHo.
Hall had previously been accused of not paying his backup dancers and being extremely rude in person.
Todrick Hall admits that online hate is very bad for mental health
Taylor Swift’s boyfriend shared a multi-page handwritten note on Twitter.
“Dear Friends, Family Members and Fans! A new show called “The Real Friends of WeHo” premieres tonight on MTV. This is very bittersweet for me because while I’m very proud of the work we all do, I have to mentally brace myself for the crazy barrage of hate coming my way,” he began his comment. “It’s extremely difficult to stay grounded and remember that most of the people who say hate don’t know me personally and don’t see me as a person.”
Todrick addressed the queer community in a lengthy letter shared on social media:

Her note continued to touch on mental health and how being a celebrity can affect your mental health.
“Being special is still hard, even in 2023, and trying to be a public figure in this space makes it even more difficult. Mental health is a very real thing, even for celebrities,” she explained. “I love my dancers, I was only a dancer until 2010. I have NEVER paid a dancer I promised to pay… EVER!”
Given that Hall has an extensive dance background, like tWtich, the two have collaborated several times on TikTok.
“He was just someone who always supported me. He was also kind and down to earth. He came over to my house a few times and we made TikTok videos together,” Hall recalled of his friend.
