A new tweet by Justice League star Ray Fisher shows support for the women who have called out Joss Whedon for his inappropriate behavior in the past.
Earlier this week, Ray Fisher tweeted out that Joss Whedon’s behavior and on-set treatment of the cast and crew of Justice League was inappropriate. Whedon took over production duties from director Zack Snyder, who stepped down from the superhero project to deal with a personal tragedy. Whedon, who had at that point most recently directed Avengers: Age of Ultron, was responsible for numerous reshoots and changes that compromised the original vision that Fisher and many others had signed up for.
Following up on his comments on the secondary director for Justice League, Ray Fisher has tweeted out that he supports and stands by the women who have called out on Joss Whedon on his behavior in the past. The women listed by Fisher are Kai Cole and Charisma Carpenter.
I believe Kai Cole and Charisma Carpenter.

Cole is Joss Whedon’s ex-wife who has penned a viral blog post that criticized the director for being a “hypocrite preaching feminist ideals.” Carpenter appeared on Whedon’s hit show Angel, a spin-off of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Carpenter’s role in the spin-off series was reportedly diminished by Whedon after the actress revealed that she was pregnant. Ray Fisher’s comments come at an important time where individuals with problematic behavior are being called out and are being asked to take responsibility for their actions. As for how Fisher’s comments reflect Justice League, beloved geek icon Kevin Smith has backed up the Cyborg actor’s comments.

Here’s the official synopsis for Zack Snyder’s Justice League:

But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
