After an internal investigation, three senior staff exited; DeGeneres apologized and vowed to make it a workplace where "everyone would be treated with respect."

Longer Version:

When you take risks you learn that there will be times when you succeed and there will be times when you fail, and both are equally important. It's hard to understand failure when you're going through it, but in the grand scheme of things it's good to fall down--not because you're drunk and not near stairs.
