Ruby Rose finally revealed the shocking details of her departure from the lead role in The CW's Batwoman series earlier today, levelling some pretty serious accusations at several of the show's top brass in the process.
According to the actress, the Batwoman set was a rather Hellish working environment, with a stunt-performer's face catching fire, and a production assistant being left quadriplegic after an accident. Rose also confirms that she didn't walk away from the series, but was fired after refusing to give in to "threats, bullying tactics, and blackmail."
Now, a spokesperson for Warner Bros. Television has issued a response to these shocking allegations, calling Rose's statement "revisionist history" and claiming she was actually fired after "multiple complaints about workplace behaviour."
“Despite the revisionist history that Ruby Rose is now sharing online aimed at the producers, the cast and crew, the network, and the studio. The truth is that Warner Bros. Television had decided not to exercise its option to engage Ruby for season two of Batwoman based on multiple complaints about workplace behavior that were extensively reviewed and handled privately out of respect for all concerned.”
We've yet to hear from showrunner Caroline Dries or any of Rose's costars, but those statements might well be incoming.
This is the last thing WarnerMedia wants after the recent Ray Fisher controversy, but this short response is probably not going to cut it given the nature of Rose's claims. Expect to see updates on this situation very soon.
