Joss Whedon, please put the phone down. His Reaction To Ray Fisher's and Gal Gadot's Complaints

Joss Whedon has been accused of using racist and abusive language by Ray Fisher, who played Cyborg in Justice League.

In New Delhi: Filmmaker Joss Whedon, who has drawn controversy, seems to have sealed his demise by replying to accusations of deplorable behavior made by stars Ray Fisher and Gal Gadot with unwise words. The director of the Justice League dismisses Israeli actress Gal Gadot's command of English and refers to Ray Fisher as "a malevolent force" in an interview with New York magazine that was later posted on its associated website, Vulture. Mr. Whedon may have thought that this interview would clear up any confusion, but it paints him in a much worse light. Joss Whedon undoubtedly used the wrong words if he was attempting to repair the harm to his reputation.

In the past, thanks to the iconic reputation of shows like Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Angel, Joss Whedon could do no wrong. He was so well-respected that, despite having directed Marvel's first two Avengers films, he was chosen to take over DC's contentious Justice League movie after Zack Snyder's departure.

Ray Fisher, who played Cyborg in Justice League, accused Joss Whedon of racist and abusive behavior on production that was disregarded, and even encouraged, by Warner Bros executives. The reckoning, when it came, was rapid. The Wonder Woman actor Gal Gadot claimed that Mr. Whedon had threatened to ruin her career. Mr. Whedon refuted the accusation in a statement to New York, stating, "I never threaten anyone. That person, who?" Then he alleged that Ms. Gadot's limited command of English was to fault. She doesn't speak English as a first language, and my speech can be gratingly flowery, he said. I knew totally, Gal Gadot said in a separate interview with New York.

Joss Whedon used considerably worse language when referring to Ray Fisher, who made serious allegations of racist behavior during the Justice League production. We're talking about a bad actor in both meanings, he said to New York, "We're talking about a malignant force."

Anecdotes from the cast and crew of Buffy and other shows started to trickle in after Ray Fisher's lengthy tweet about Joss Whedon's allegedly abusive on-set behavior and Gal Gadot's claim that he threatened her career opened the floodgates. Actresses Charisma Carpenter and Michelle Trachtenberg in particular shared their stories. In his comments for New York magazine, Joss Whedon either downplayed or completely dismissed them.

Fans were dissatisfied with Joss Whedon's direction of the Justice League movie, and a campaign to get Zack Snyder to release his original vision of the movie, led by Henry Cavill, who plays Superman, led to the release of the "Snyder Cut" last year. The four-hour version reveals that Ray Fisher's effect and length in the Justice League movie had been significantly diminished.
