Ray Fisher is addressing Joss Whedon’s recent claims in the newest update to the “Justice League” feud.

The star responded to Whedon’s denial of misconduct on the set of the film from both Gal Gadot and himself in a series of tweets.

He first acknowledged the reports on Jan. 17, but decided to focus on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy for the day.

“Rather than address all of the lies and buffoonery today — I will be celebrating the legacy of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Tomorrow the work continues,” he explained.

On Tuesday, he responded individually to each of the director’s claims.

“Before I get started today, I want to thank you all for lifting and supporting EVERYONE that has been negatively affected by Joss Whedon,” he began. “I was not the first to speak out about him, but I hope to be one of the last that has to.”

Fisher directed his criticism first at the defences Whedon used regarding Gadot’s claims of career threats.

“His response to the allegations is: “They all misunderstood and/or are out to get me—also my mom is sexy” ???” the actor commented.

In his interview with New York Magazine, Whedon suggested one particular incident might be the cause for Gadot’s misconception. Whedon recalled an argument the two had over cutting a scene, where he told her she would have to tie him to a railroad track and do it over his dead body.

“English is not her first language, and I tend to be annoyingly flowery in my speech,” he explained. “Then I was told that I had said something about ‘her’ dead body and tying her to the railroad track.”

When contacted for a response, Gadot said she “understood perfectly.”

The Hollywood Reporter claimed in an April 2021 article that the director had several arguments with the actress over the script.

A witness said that after one particularly nasty argument, Whedon threatened rewrites for Wonder Woman’s character.

“He told her he’s the writer and she’s going to shut up and say the lines and he can make her look incredibly stupid in this movie,” the witness said.

Gadot herself told the magazine: “I had my issues with [Whedon] and Warner Bros handled it in a timely manner.”

“I don’t threaten people. Who does that?” Whedon said, via The Independent.

Fisher addressed this claim as well, citing a quote from the director where he recalled family anecdotes of “plotting elaborate revenges.”

“Maybe the guy that used to spend his free time ‘plotting elaborate revenges’ on his own family?” he said.

The actor also directed more criticism at DC Films President Walter Hamada for his decision-making.

“Walter Hamada is probably KICKING himself right now for trying to throw Joss Whedon under the bus,” Fisher wrote. “Had Walter waited, he would’ve seen Joss had already bought a roundtrip ticket to run HIMSELF over…”

The actor didn’t address the comments Whedon directed specifically at Fisher.

In the same interview where he denied Gadot’s claims, Whedon also addressed the accusations from Ray Fisher about discrimination on the set for his character, calling them “false and unjust.”

He reasoned he cut down Cyborg’s storyline in his version of the movie because it “made no sense.” Apparently, test audiences found Cyborg’s character to be “the worst” in the film.

The director recalled his discussion with Fisher about the decision to be “friendly and respectful” and said it lasted for “hours.”

On why Fisher would do an about-face and call Whedon’s behaviour on-set “gross, abusive, unprofessional and completely unacceptable,” he believed they were accusations made in bad faith.

“We’re talking about a malevolent force. We’re talking about a bad actor in both senses,” he said.
