Star Ray Fisher, in 2020, alleged that filmmaker Joss Whedon was violent on the sets of Justice League The filmmaker had actually come on board for the reshoots as soon as Zack Snyder had to leave the job due to individual factors. He had actually also informed that he was working together with Warner Bros in the middle of the examination against Whedon. Now, individuals have come out to speak versus the filmmaker about how he abused his power.
Charm Carpenter, who played Cordelia Chase in the supernatural drama series, declared that Whedon abused his power on numerous events when she belonged to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. In a lengthy statement released on Wednesday, she stood with Ray Fisher amid the examination and gave information how Whedon would threaten to fire her, called her fat when she was 4 months pregnant, asked her if she was going to keep her infant and then fired her when she gave birth.
Here’s her complete declaration:
” For nearly 20 years, I have held my tongue and even made reasons for particular events that shock me to this day.
Joss Whedon abused his power on many events while working together on the sets of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. While he found his misconduct entertaining, it just served to magnify my performance stress and anxiety, disempower me, and alienate me from my peers. The disturbing incidents activated a persistent physical condition from which I still suffer. It is with a pounding, broken heart that I state I coped in seclusion and, sometimes, destructively.
Last summer, when Ray Fisher openly accused Joss of violent and unprofessional behavior towards the cast and team throughout reshoots on the Justice League set in 2017, it gutted me. Joss has a history of being delicately terrible. He has created hostile and hazardous work environments considering that his early profession. I understand because I experienced it first-hand. Repeatedly.
Like his ongoing, passive-aggressive threats to fire me, which ruined a young star’s self-esteem. And callously calling me “fat” to colleagues when I was 4 months pregnant, weighing 126 lbs. He was mean and biting, disparaging about others freely, and frequently played favorites, pitting people against one another to compete and compete for his attention and approval.
He called me in for a sit-down conference to question and berate me regarding a rosary tattoo I got to help me feel more spiritually grounded in an increasingly unpredictable work climate that impacted me physically.
Joss deliberately refused several calls from my representatives making it impossible to get in touch with him to tell him the news that I was pregnant. Finally, when Joss was apprised of the situation, he requested a conference with me. In that closed-door meeting, he asked me if I was “going to keep it” and manipulatively weaponized my womanhood and faith against me. He proceeded to assault my character, mock my faiths, implicate me of undermining the show, and after that unceremoniously fired me the following season once I delivered.
At six months pregnant, I was asked to report to operate at 1: 00 AM after my doctor advised reducing my work hours. Due to long and physically demanding days and the emotional stress of needing to defend my requirements as a working pregnant woman, I started to experience Braxton Hicks contractions. It was clear to me the 1: 00 AM call was vindictive.
At That Time, I felt powerless and alone. With no other option, I swallowed the mistreatment and carried on. I had a child on the method, and I was the primary income producer of my growing family. All this was occurring during one of the most terrific time in new motherhood. All that guarantee and happiness drew right out. And Joss was the vampire.
Regardless of the harassment, a part of me still sought his validation. I made reasons for his habits and quelched my own pain. I have even specified openly at conventions that I ‘d deal with him once again. Only recently, after years of therapy and a wake-up call from the Time’s Up movement, do I understand the intricacies of this demoralized thinking. It is impossible to comprehend the mind without sustaining the abuse. Our society and market vilify the victims and glorify the abusers for their accomplishments. The onus is on the abused with an expectation to accept and adjust to be employable. No responsibility on the criminal who cruises on unscathed. Unrepentant. Remorseless.
These memories and more have weighed on my soul like bricks for almost half of my life. I want I said something sooner. I want I had the composure and nerve all those years back. I silenced myself in pity and conditioned silence.
With tears welling, I feel a frustrating sense of duty to Ray and others for staying private about my experience with Joss and the suffering it has triggered me. It is generously apparent that Joss has actually continued his hazardous actions, continuing to create wreckage in his wake. My hope now, by lastly stepping forward about these experiences, is to produce area for the recovery of others who I know have actually experienced comparable serialized abuses of power.
Just recently, I took part in WarnerMedia’s Justice League examination since I think Ray to be an individual of stability who is telling the reality. His shooting as Cyborg in The Flash was the final stroke for me. I am not shocked, I am deeply hurt by it. It difficulties and distresses me that in 2021 professionals STILL have to select between whistleblowing in the workplace and job security.
It has taken me so long to muster the nerve to make this declaration openly. The gravity of it is not lost on me. As a single mother whose household’s livelihood is dependent on my craft, I’m afraid. Regardless of my worry about its influence on my future, I can no longer remain silent. This is past due and necessary. It is time.”
As quickly as Charm Carpenter, made her statement public, Justice League actor Ray Fisher came out in support. He composed. “Charisma Carpenter is among the bravest individuals I know. I am permanently grateful for her guts and for her financing her voice to the Justice League examination. Read her truth. Share her fact. Protect her at all costs. “It is time.” A> E. #IStandWithCharisma.”
Charm Carpenter is among the bravest individuals I understand.
I am forever grateful for her nerve and for her lending her voice to the Justice League investigation.
Read her fact.
Share her reality.
Secure her at all expenses.
” It is time.”

The lead actress Sarah Michelle Gellar, who played Buffy in the renowned program, posted on Instagram, “While I am proud to have my name related to Buffy Summers, I don’t wish to be permanently related to the name Joss Whedon. I am more concentrated on raising my family and making it through a pandemic. I stand with all survivors of abuse and am proud of them for speaking up.”
