Jimmy Fallon Offers Apology to 'Tonight Show' Staffers Amid Claims of Toxic Workplace

Aug. 8, 2023

NEW YORK – Jimmy Fallon has apologized to the staff at The Tonight Show after a report that accused the host of creating a “toxic workplace” at the NBC late-night talk show.

Fallon and showrunner Chris Miller held a Zoom meeting Thursday to address the report that was published by Rolling Stone, which cited several current and former Tonight Show staffers who had detailed incidents where Fallon berated employees and gave what one former staffer described as passive-aggressive feedback on their work.

According to Rolling Stone, two employees who joined the virtual meeting claimed that Fallon, 48, said he had not intended to "create that type of atmosphere for the show."

"It's embarrassing and I feel so bad," they recalled Fallon saying during the meeting. "Sorry if I embarrassed you and your family and friends… I feel so bad I can’t even tell you.”

Staffers told Rolling Stone they had witnessed Fallon “snap at crew members, express irritation over the smallest of things, and berate and belittle staffers out of frustration.”
