Sofia Vergara rallies to defend Ellen DeGeneres amid intense drama surrounding the talk show host, including accusations that she was making fun of the Colombian star’s accent in a 2015 episode .The recently revamped clip finds Vergara, 48, and DeGeneres, 62, discussing a CoverGirl commercial they filmed together, with the daytime host highlighting Judge’s English as “America’s Got Talent” while asking why the producers gave him such a complicated copy to read. Many fans took this as DeGeneres mocking Vergara’s accent, leading the TV star to defend her funny mate, saying she was “in the joke”.

“Two actors have fun together to have fun. I’ve never been a victim guys, I’ve always been in the joke, ”Vergara tweeted alongside the viral clip in question.

While some agreed the two women only shared a laugh, others refused to let DeGeneres slack off.

“My parents, who have strong Spanish accents, had no choice but to be ‘in the joke’, wrote a disappointed tweeter. “Instead, they were the butt of jokes. And as a child of immigrants, I have always been harassed because of it. Your “entertainment” may cause some to think they have a free pass to ridicule. ”

Former staff members have recently spoken out against the comic, saying it has created a toxic work environment for her team and citing everything from general rudeness to high-profile employees engaging in sexual misconduct. The allegations prompted WarnerMedia to launch an official investigation with the help of a third-party company.

Three main producers – executive producers Ed Glavin and Kevin Leman and co-executive producer Jonathan Norman – were ousted from the syndicated tape distributed by Warner Bros.
