BUFFY Star Charisma Carpenter Has Now Accused Joss Whedon Of Abusive & "Traumatising" Behaviour

Following Justice League actor Ray Fisher's allegations against Joss Whedon, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel alum Charisma Carpenter has weighed in, sharing her own account of his shocking behaviour.

News

Though he never really went into specifics, Ray Fisher made some very troubling allegations against Avengers director Joss Whedon last year, accusing him of "abusive and unprofessional behaviour" on the set of Justice League.

Now, Charisma Carpenter has shared an account of her own experiences working with Whedon on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, and she doesn't shy away from going into detail.

Carpenter, who played cheerleader turned vamp-hunter Cordelia Chase on Buffy and its spinoff show, reveals that she participated in the WarnerMedia investigation into Whedon's behaviour, and although she has defended the director in the past, felt she could no longer stay silent once the news that Fisher had been removed from his role as Cyborg in The Flash broke.

The actress describes Whedon as a joy-sucking "vampire," who publicly and privately berated and humiliated her on several different occasions, before ultimately firing her from Angel after becoming enraged because she fell pregnant while shooting.

Check out Charisma's Tweets below for more.

UPDATE: Amber Benson, who played Tara on Buffy, has send out a Tweet backing-up her costar.

Whedon's career already seemed to be on the rocks after Fisher's claims (he was recently fired as showrunner on HBO's The Nevers), but this is likely to sink it completely.
