Ray Fisher thanked Buffy star Charisma Carpenter for participating in the Justice League investigation prompted by allegations of abuse by Joss Whedon.
“Charisma Carpenter is one of the bravest people I know. I will always be grateful for her courage and for lending her voice to the Justice League investigation,” Fisher tweeted.

Fisher’s tweet comes shortly after Carpenter offered support for the League of Justice star while detailing his own experience with Whedon during his time at Buffy. According to Carpenter, it was Fisher’s public stance against Whedon that helped guide his decision to come forward, explaining how Whedon “has a history of being casually cruel.” Examples he cited include how Whedon “proceeded to attack my character, poke fun at my religious beliefs, accuse me of sabotaging the show, and then unceremoniously fired me the following season once I gave birth.” Carpenter’s statement was quickly corroborated by peers Buffy alum Amber Benson.
As Fisher pointed out, Carpenter was one of the parties questioned in the League of Justice The investigation, which has its roots in comments made by Fisher in June 2020 when he retracted the praise he gave Whedon, who replaced director Zack Snyder in the DC Extended Universe film. Days later, he tweeted that “[Whedon’s] on-set treatment of the cast and crew of League of Justice it was rude, abusive, unprofessional and completely unacceptable. “
Warner Bros. soon launched an investigation into Fisher’s claims. However, the study announced that Fisher was not cooperating with the investigator it hired to investigate the matter and that he did not provide evidence to support his claims. He also denied the actor’s later allegation that DC Films president Walter Hamada asked Fisher to give in with Johns and focus solely on Berg and Whedon. In response, Fisher requested a third-party investigation. That investigation concluded in early December 2020, and WarnerMedia stated that “corrective action” had been taken.
WarnerMedia released another statement in January, saying: “The [Justice League] The investigation was conducted by an outside law firm and led by a former federal judge. More than 80 people were interviewed. We have full confidence in your thoroughness and integrity, and corrective action has been taken. The investigation is over and it is time to move on. “
More recently, Fisher tweeted that Hamada still owed an apology to those who participated in the League of Justice investigation.
