Cyborg actor Ray Fisher has responded to statements made by Joss Whedon in a recent New York Magazine article.
Whedon, who has been accused of on-set abuse and racism by a number of actors, including Fisher, spoke out with criticism towards “Justice League” cast members calling them “rude.”
The New York Magazine article spoke on the statements released by Gal Gadot Gadot last year. Gadot stated Whedon “threatened” her and said he would make her “career miserable.”
“I don’t threaten people. Who does that?” Whedon said. “English is not her first language, and I tend to be annoyingly flowery in my speech.”
According to the article, Gadot did not agree with Whedon’s version of events.
“I understood perfectly. I will never work with him and would never suggest any of my peers to work with him in the future.”Gal Gadot
According to Whedon, none of the claims Fisher made were “either true or merited discussing.”
“We’re talking about a malevolent force,” Whedon said in the New York Magazine interview. “We’re talking about a bad actor in both senses.”
