'Ellen' Producer Faces Sexual Misconduct Allegations
Ellen Degeneres is apologizing after bombshell accusations about fostering a toxic work environment behind the scenes at her show. Just hours after her apology, a new BuzzFeed report detailed allegations against top producers, including rampant sexual misconduct and harassment. One executive producer is said to have had a button underneath his desk which he used to remotely shut his office door during meetings. Another producer, Ed Galvin, is said to have been "handsy with women" at the show.
Bloc Québécois leader Yves-François Blanchet is denying allegations of sexual misconduct that were posted anonymously on social media. Five current and former female employees at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights allege they've been sexually harassed by the same male colleague and say their complaints to human resources were dismissed. A funeral service has been held for the mayor of South Korea's capital Seoul, amid controversy. More than half a million people signed an online petition opposing the publicly-funded ceremony, which was also streamed online. Park Won-soon was found dead on a mountainside Friday, an apparent suicide. That was days after his former secretary filed a criminal complaint against him that was reported to involve sexual harassment. As mayor of Seoul, Park was one of South Korea's most powerful political figures. Two former on-air personalities for Fox News Media on July 20 sued the network and several of its prominent hosts, alleging sexual assault and harassment.
