It appears that Joss Whedon, as well as being one of the greatest writers ever, is also a bit of a dick.
There had been complaints first from Ray Fisher initially and then later Gal Gadot about Whedon’s antics on Justice League but that film was beset with problems from the start so maybe not an easy set to be on but now allegations have also surfaced about his time as a creator of Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
Charisma Carpenter has been very critical of him, alleging he “abused his power” and made it a toxic work environment, then both Michelle Trachtenberg and Amber Benson have also come out in support whilst Sarah Michelle Gellar, although not making allegations herself, has come out in support of her co-stars.
I find it a bit sad really as it always seemed such a happy set and behind the scenes footage never gave any concerns of unrest and to this day it still remains my favourite ever show.
Goes to prove that when you get someone as vocal as Joss was about women empowerment they are probably hiding something.
