After reading these allegations all we can say is “YIKES!”

Shortly thereafter, Sarah Michelle Gellar, who played the titular role of “Buffy Summers” released a statement via Instagram:

Charisma stated she participated in the investigation from Warner Bros. because she considers “Ray to be a person of integrity who is telling the truth.” She goes on to say his firing from the upcoming The Flash movie was “the last straw.” “My hope now, about finally coming forward about these experiences is to create space for the healing of others who I know have experienced similar serialized abuses of power,” she said.

Charisma’s statements are very disheartening, but timely. Ray Fisher has been very vocal about his and others’ mistreatment on the set of Justice League. For him to be subsequently fired while now two actresses are speaking out against Joss Whedon is worth Warner Bros. re-investigating his claims, and even reinstating him.

We cannot wait to see how all of this unfolds. We wonder if now that Charisma, and seemingly Sarah Michelle are coming forward with their history with Joss, will others too? David Boreanaz, J August Richards, James Marsters, Michelle Trachtenberg, Alyson Hannigan, and Nicholas Brendon have all been very quiet about this issue. This may be why we haven’t gotten an Buffy or Angel reboot yet…

Joss Whedon has yet to come out with a statement in regards to Charisma’s allegations. We hope he does soon because this looks disastrous. #MeToo
