Joss Whedon bragged about making female writers cry, ‘Firefly’ writer claims

Share

Joss Whedon continuously suffered from damaging claims. This time, his colleague from Firefly spoke up and stood for his alleged victims.

Following Charisma Carpenter’s allegations against Joss Whedon, Jose Molina publicized the other side of the director.

On Friday, Molina took to Twitter and joined the #IStandWithCharisma hashtag to support Carpenter.

“‘Casually cruel’ is a perfect way of describing Joss,” he said. “He thought being mean was funny. Making female writers cry during a notes session was especially hysterical. He actually liked to boast about the time he made one writer cry twice in one meeting.”

Molina surely experienced it personally, as he worked several times with Whedon. Their works include Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Other colleagues also spoke up

Aside from Molina, Marti Noxon also voiced support for Carpenter and other actresses who became victims of Whedon and his behavior.

Noxon worked with the disgraced director on the final two seasons of Buffy.

“I would like to validate what the women of Buffy are saying and support them in telling their story. They deserve to be heard,” she wrote. I understand where Charisma, Amber [Benson], Michelle [Trachtenberg], and all the women who have spoken out are coming from.”

Their responses came after Carpenter detailed the abuses in a lengthy statement alongside the caption, “My truth. #IStandWithRayFisher.”

On her Twitter status, the 50-year-old actress revealed that she has been keeping her stories for two decades now.

When the Justice League director decided to remove Ray Fisher from The Flash installment, it finally hit Carpenter to speak up.

“Joss Whedon abused his power on numerous occasions while working together on the sets of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel,” she said. “While he found his misconduct amusing, it only served to intensify my performance anxiety, disempower me, and alienate me from my peers.”

She added that Whedon called her “fat” when she was four months pregnant and even questioned her religious belief.

This pushed her to finally share the truth with people by participating in the Justice League investigation.

Meanwhile, Fisher applauded her move and let her know that they are all in this together.

The actor retweeted her post and added, “Charisma Carpenter is one of the bravest people I know. I am forever grateful for her courage and for her lending her voice to the Justice League investigation.”

As of the writing, Whedon has not responded to any of these statements yet.
