Joss Whedon Finally Responds to Misconduct Accusations Made by Gal Gadot, Ray Fisher and the ‘Buffy’ Cast

| Breaking News Updates | Fox News

Joss Whedon finally addresses the numerous allegations of misconduct that have been leveled at him by “Justice League” stars Gal Gadot and Ray Fisher, and “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” cast members.

In a new profile for Vulture, the superstar showrunner admits to having affairs with various “Buffy” employees when the show was on the air, and says he feels “fucking terrible about them,” mainly because “it messes up the power dynamics.”

Still, Whedon insists he felt he “had to” sleep with the women who worked for him and was “powerless” to resist.

“I’m not really kidding,” Whedon insisted, saying he was surrounded by the kind of women who would have ignored him when he was younger and feared that if he hadn’t slept with them he “would regret it. always”.

Whedon also denies Gadot’s claim that he threatened to ruin her career during an argument on the set of “Justice League”, saying she didn’t understand his “flowery” way of speaking.

“I don’t threaten people. Who do this ? said Whedon. “English is not his first language, and I tend to be flowery boring in my speech.”

In Whedon’s version, the two were arguing over a scene that Gadot wanted to cut. Whedon said he joked that if she wanted to get rid of it, she would have to tie him to a train track and do it over his corpse.

“Then I was told that I had said something about his corpse and tying him up her to the railway line,” he said.

Gadot’s response: “I totally understood,” she told Vulture via E-mail.

Actor Ray Fisher – who played Cyborg in the 2017 film – also accused Whedon of slashing the character’s presence and making choices he thought were “offensive to the black community”.

He also accused Whedon of changing an actor of color complexion to lighten their complexion.

Whedon told Vulture that he made the entire film look lighter in pre-production and included all characters’ skin tones.

He insists the only reason Fisher’s role was cut from his version of the film was because tThe story “logically made no sense” and he felt the acting was poor.

Whedon said none of Fisher’s claims were “neither true nor worth discussing”, and suggested there was some kind of conspiracy to have him.

“We are talking about a malevolent force,” he said. “We’re talking about a bad actor both ways.”

Fisher obliquely commented on Whedon on his Twitter post, but suggested there were bigger issues.
