In a series of interviews conducted last spring, Whedon addressed allegations from Carpenter and other cast/crew from TV series including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Dollhouse, as well as statements made by Alliance justice movie stars Ray Fisher and Gal Gadot.
About the very specific Carpenter’s accusations in February 2021 – including what the prolific presenter created”hostile and toxic work environment”- Whedon admitted that he was “not polite” but claimed he “didn’t call her fat” when she Angel Season 4 pregnancy. Furthermore, Whedon suggests, “Most of my experiences with Charisma have been enjoyable and captivating. She struggles with her lines at times, but no one can hit a harder punch line than her.”
Elsewhere in 9,000 words New York records, it is reported that “whedon advocates” believe that Alliance justice Actor Ray Fisher’s public attacks on the writer/director were part of a orchestrated “campaign” in favor of Zack Snyder “poisoning Carpenter against Whedon, leading her to consider the story complicated complicated their relationship as a simple story of abuse.”
Whedon told the shaman that none of the statements Fisher made in the media were “true or helpful to discuss,” but rather the opinions of “an evil force. We’re talking about a bad actor in both senses,” he said.
Carpenter in her response Tuesday used sarcasm to mock her ethos of sensitivity and sincerity, writing, “#IStandWithRayFisher, ‘evil force’ and ‘bad guy’ in both senses’ poisoned my feeble mind with trendy buzzwords and perverted ideas about my experience with a narcissistic former boss who still could not be held accountable. and just apologize”.
Carpenters also stand up to support Alliance justiceby Gal Gadot, who last May alleged that Whedon threatened her career while making the superhero film. “I don’t threaten people,” Whedon said New York, before suggesting that Gadot misunderstood something else he said. “English is not her native language,” he said, “and I tend to be uncomfortably flowery in my speech.”
To that, Carpenter writes, “I believe Gal Gadot not only understands occupational threats in English but also in Hebrew and Arabic. Maybe French, Spanish and Italian too. ”
