Former Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel star Charisma Carpenter has responded to recent comments from the creator of these shows, Joss Whedon. And she does not seem very happy.

Last year, Carpenter took to social media to describe the verbal and mental abuse she endured from Whedon while working for him. The allegations, compared with similar accusations from Justice League star Ray Fisher, thatd to several of her teammates and colleagues who reinforced the remarks and that Whedon was removed from projects he was working on at the time. So this week, New York Magazine published a comprehensive interview with Whedon in which the author-director responded to Carpenter’s allegations.

When asked for comments, Carpenter said he agreed with her weight and pregnancy, Whedon said he was “not manly,” but “did not call her fat.” He added, “Most of my experiences with Charisma were lovely and charming. Sometimes she struggled with her lines, but no one could hit a battle line harder than her.” The interview also showed that Whedon responded Fisher’s accusations of racism and Gal Gadot’s stories that Whedon was insulting and dismissive during Justice League resumes; Whedon called Fisher a bad actor and said Gadot must have misunderstood his remarks due to a language barrier.

Carpenter responded to all of this with a tone that said almost more than the words themselves.

Carpenter went further to also talk about addiction and said that it’s never too late to try to get better – whIt makes you think she would almost be forgiving if her “former tyrannical narcissistic boss” would “be responsible and just apologize,“wwhat Whedon has not yet done.

Subsequently, Fisher responded to Carpenter’s tweets in kind and took off problem with the article suggesting that he did not speak on his own behalf and did so only to help Zack Snyder—that Justice League Rector Whedon replaced after Snyder left the film after a family tragedy.

This is a messy situation all around, but there is little doubt that Whedon’s lack of accountability and attempts to find fault with his prosecutors stories can be even worse than some of those accusations.
