Batwoman Actor Ruby Rose has levelled allegations of heavy-handedness and inappropriate behaviour against the producers of The CW drama “Batwoman” and their co-star Dougray Scott more than a year after their exit from the superhero series, saying they were forced to leave the show by the management.
The Australian actor, shared a series of posts on their Instagram Story, aim at several people involved in the production of Batwoman, revealing what they said “really happened” on set.
Rose ‘name and shame’ the channel “Batwoman” showrunner Caroline Dries, and Berlanti Productions’ Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. Including actor Dougray Scott whom they claim was unprofessional and “abused women” wher he hurt a female stunt double.
The actor said: “Dear CW @carolinedries @sarahsawitty @gberlanti et al. Enough is enough. I’m going to tell the whole world what really happened on that set.”
“I will come for you so what happened to me never happens to another person again. And so I can finally take back my life and the truth. Shame on you.”
“Peter Roth, you are up first. You are chapter one, not sure if you left after getting promoted to the highest position because you just couldn’t stop making young women steam your pants around your crotch while you were still wearing said pants or if you left after putting a private investigator on me who you fired as soon as the report didn’t fit your narrative, either way.. when it comes to you, there’s already an army waiting for u.”
She was cast as Kate Kane in The CW show back in 2018 however, underwent emergency surgery for a spine issue that led to two herniated discs caused by doing physical stunts on the set. Hence on their Instagram Story, the actor included footage a surgery that they had for a stunt injury they had suffered and alleged they were forced to go back to work by former head of Warner Bros TV Peter Roth.
The actor also accused Roth of inappropriate behaviour that he had asked women to steam his pants while he was wearing them, and alleged he had Rose investigated by a private investigator after they left the series.
Warner Bros Responds to Allegations
Responding to their claims, Warner Bros Television, the studio behind “Batwoman”, confirmed while the actor was fired from the series due to an internal probe into “multiple complaints about workplace behavior” against the actor.
Warner Bros. response dismissing the claims: “Despite the revisionist history that Ruby Rose is now sharing online aimed at the producers, the cast and crew, the network, and the Studio, the truth is that Warner Bros. Television had decided not to exercise its option to engage Ruby for season two of Batwoman based on multiple complaints about workplace behavior that were extensively reviewed and handled privately out of respect for all concerned.”
And, Rose has not commented on the response from Warner Bros yet.
