A portion of Ellen DeGeneres' staff was let go this week after WarnerMedia conducted a round of layoffs.
About 17 staffers from Ellen’s digital team were affected.
Ellen addressed the reductions in a call with her staff and said she was "heartbroken" by the cuts.
Ellen addressed her remaining employees and said, “I obviously as am heartbroken as everybody, but we have to know that this is all for the good of Ellen Digital Ventures, and we need to keep this going because we have such a great team and we believe in y’all, and we will get through this just like we’ve gotten through all kinds of other things. Know that we believe in you and I know this is hard for y’all to hear, and we are here for you.”
The cuts were reportedly a part of a restructuring taking place at WarnerMedia.
