Okungbowa, who currently stars on CBS' Bob Hearts Abishola, wrote on Instagram that he supports former Ellen staffers who've spoken out about their alleged mistreatment. "I have been getting calls asking me about the Ellen Degeneres Show and I would like to address the time I spent there. I was on air talent from 2003-2006 and from 2007 -2013," Okungbowa wrote. "While I am grateful for the opportunity it afforded me, I did experience and feel the toxicity of the environment and I stand with my former colleagues in their quest to create a healthier and more inclusive workplace as the show moves forward."
