Yet another veteran of Buffy the Vampire Slayer has publicly offered her support for Charisma Carpenter after her allegations yesterday of abuse and “misconduct” by Joss Whedon on the supernatural series.

Like Carpenter herself, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Michelle Trachtenberg, Amber Benson and Emma Caulfield, Eliza Dushku took to social media today to tell her co-star, “I admire you, I respect you and I love you.” In her Instagram post, the actress who played Faith on Buffy and his angel The spin-off said she found Carpenter’s story of Whedon’s “flippant and cruel” conduct to be “powerful, painful, and painted a picture that we will never know or know collectively” – as you can. see it below.

CAA and other representatives for Avengers director Whedon said nothing about claims by Carpenter and Trachtenberg, which on Wednesday blamed “inappropriate behavior” on the part of the Buffy creative towards her when she was a “teenager” in the running series 1998 – 2003.

In a subsequent reissue of his original post, Trachtenberg added: “The last one. Comment I will make on this subject. Was. There was a rule. Saying. He is no longer allowed to be alone in a room with Michelle. The actress’ remark of a ‘rule’ implies that others were aware of Whedon’s allegedly inappropriate interaction with the then miner and had a safeguard in place to prevent a repeat of the event. – a new turning point in this already twisted tale.

Unlike Trachtenberg and his other co-stars, the ICM partners replaced Dushku with a post Buffy professional relationship with Whedon on the thrill Doll house, which ran on Fox for two seasons starting in 2009.

While not saying anything about the wrongdoing of Whedon herself, Dushku made allegations of sexual abuse True lies Stunt coordinator Joel Krammer in 1994, when the actress was 12. Accused of a similar irregularity by others, the former double Arnold Schwarzenegger denied Dushku’s allegations in 2018.

“It’s time for us to… say, ‘No, we’re going to stay in our truth, we’re going to stay in our power,’” Dushku told me in a 2019 interview with Deadline.

Carpenter and Trachtenberg’s claims, as well as Benson’s tweet about a “toxic environment” at Buffy, follows months and months of allegations of Justice League Whedon actor Ray Fisher being “rude, abusive, unprofessional and completely unacceptable” to himself and others on the set of the Warner Bros. superhero movie. This apparently ended on December 11 when the AT&T-owned studio released a statement cryptically claiming their “investigation into the Justice League the film has been completed and corrective action has been taken. “

WarnerMedia never revealed what that action was, but soon after, as it further blamed DC Entertainment Chairman Walter Hamada and his predecessor Geoff Johns, Fisher was canned last month a Cyborg role in the next one. Shine movie.

Fisher tweeted his own take on Carpenter, who took part in the WB Justice League investigation, earlier today:
