Cyborg comics writer David F Walker spoke out regarding Ray Fisher’s recent Justice League allegations regarding being made to say “Booyah”.

As Ray Fisher continues to speak out with allegations of abuse on the Justice League set and being forced into saying the Booyah catchphrase which originated from the Teen Titans animated series, comics writer David F Walker has also discussed being forced to use it on the page. Ray Fisher recently spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about Joss Whedon’s abusive behavior on-set, which also reportedly saw the director threaten Gal Gadot’s career.

But comics writer David F Walker explained on Twitter that in his Cyborg stories (just before DC rebooted the universe with DC Rebirth) he was forced to use “Booyah” when writing Victor Stone. The writer also pointed out that whenever he raised his concerns about using the term he was ignored. Walker also went on to say that he’d spoken with Ray Fisher about the Justice League situation, sympathizing with the star about being belittled by executives. Take a look below.

What do you make of the Cyborg conversation? Are you disappointed that DC and Warner Bros. forced David F Walker and Ray Fisher to use “Booyah” for the hero even when it made no sense? Sound-off in the comments below.

Here is the official synopsis for the Snyder Cut:

“In ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.”

Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
