The actress decided to publicly reveal the abuses committed by filmmaker Joss Whedon in extensive statements on Twitter.
Director Joss Whedon is accused by an actress of committing abuse and psychological and workplace harassment while working with him during the filming of two films ‘Angel’ and ‘Buffy, the Vampire Slayer’.
Charisma Carpenter decided to publicly reveal the abuses committed by this filmmaker, and in extensive statements on Twitter, the actress commented: “Joss Whedon abused his power on many occasions, while he saw his misconduct as funny, my anxiety intensified, I he disempowered and aligned me with my peers … he called me ‘fat’ several times when I was pregnant, even when he found out that I was expecting a baby, he asked me if I was going to decide if I was born or not ”.
Actress Amber Benson, who also starred in ‘Buffy,’ joined Carpenter’s accusations, revealing, “’Buffy’ had a toxic vibe that started at the top. Charisma is telling the truth and I support her 100%. There was a lot of damage during that time, and many of us are still processing it 20 years later. “
Another actress, Sarah Michelle Gellar, star of ‘Buffy’, did not directly accuse Whedon, but supported the complaint of her companions: “… I don’t want to always be associated with the name Joss Whedon. I am more focused on raising my family and surviving a pandemic, so I will not comment further at this time, but I am on the side of abuse survivors, and I am proud that they are speaking out. “
