Warner Bros. Accuses Ruby Rose Of Being The Toxic One On The Set Of “Batwoman”

October 21, 2021 / Posted by:

This week, Ruby Rose called out nearly everyone who worked on The CW’s Batwoman. Ruby abruptly left Batwoman back in March 2020 under vague, mysterious circumstances, and a year and a half later, Ruby was finally ready to talk and spill it all. They alleged that the set of Batwoman was a toxic nightmare. Well, Warner Bros. Television has responded to Ruby’s claims. WB TV has a very different tale to tell. Specifically, they allege that Ruby was the toxic nightmare, and was asked to leave the show because of it.

Ruby’s alleged, among other things, that they were forced to go back to work 10 days after suffering a major on-set injury, that WB Exec Peter Roth created some questionable boundaries by having female assistants steam his pants while he was still wearing them, and that showrunner Caroline Dries created a dangerous work environment by overworking cast and crew to get the show shot before COVID-19 shut everything down. Ruby also alleged that their co-star Dougray Scott hurt a female stunt actor and yelled obscenities at women.

Both Warner Bros. and Dougray Scott released statements in response to Ruby’s allegations. First, Warner Bros. accused Ruby of creating some “revisionist history.” According to WB, they received so many complaints about Ruby that they had no choice but to cut Ruby loose. via Deadline:

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.

As for Dougray Scott, he is calling BS on Ruby’s claims against him.

In a separate statement issued Wednesday afternoon, Scott reaffirmed the studio’s assessment that Rose was not brought back for Season 2 “based on multiple complaints about her workplace behaviour,” adding, “I absolutely and completely refute the defamatory and damaging claims made against me by her; they are entirely made up and never happened.”

Ruby didn’t exactly respond to the statements made by Warner Bros. or Dougray, but they did keep talking on Instagram yesterday, saying that they chose to speak up, because of the larger conversation surrounding the film union, IATSE, and unsafe working conditions in Hollywood. Ruby also stressed that any of their followers shouldn’t start targeting their replacement, Javicia Leslie, who is the current Batwoman on Batwoman.

Only Ruby, Warner Bros., and the cast and crew of Batwoman know what happened on set. But Warner Bros. and Dougray better watch out. By releasing those statements, they just officially started a war. Ruby considers herself a chosen member of Vin Diesel’s family, and we all know the lengths Vin will go to send the message that he’ll always defend his (Vin Diesel voice) fambuly. Warner Bros. is going to come into work one day and find a flame-engulfed 1970 Dodge Charger R/T crashed into the Warner Bros. water tower.
