Ray Fisher And Charisma Carpenter Respond To Joss Whedon’s Disastrous “New York Magazine” Interview

January 19, 2022 / Posted by:

Joss Whedon‘s New York Magazine interview is landing harder than an America’s Next Top Model contestant on one of Tyra Banks’ obstacle courses. In it, the writer/director absolutely shits the bed as he denied claims of racism by saying that he minimized Ray Fisher’s role in Justice League due to plot reasons and Ray’s bad acting. And Joss says he never threatened Gal Gadot, it was just a misunderstanding since English isn’t her first language. Charisma Carpenter, who worked with Joss on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, previously accused him of on-set bullying and firing her for getting pregnant. Defenders of Joss tell NY Mag that they believe Charisma was never harassed by Joss and that Ray’s claims “corrupted” her mind and made her remember things wrong. And now Ray and Charisma are responding to Joss’ bullshit.

Joss calls Ray Fisher a “malevolent force” and a “bad actor in both senses” in the interview and after taking a day to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr., Ray responded on Twitter. Ray thinks that Joss needs to get a refund from his PR team and also points out the weird part in the train wreck interview that makes Joss look like the Shia LaBeouf of directors.

Ray also points to the conflicting statements in Joss’ interview like how he says he would never threaten someone but also mentions how he used to plot “elaborate revenge fantasies” against his older brothers who would bully him. Charisma then tagged herself in and posted her continued support of Ray, calling Joss a “tyrannical narcissistic boss.” Kris Jenner will sue for copyright infringement–Joss cannot take her gig!

And Ray also went after New York Magazine and the article’s writer Lila Shapiro:

The only way for Joss Whedon to fix publicity this bad is to pull a baby holding a kitten from a flaming car. And even then, people would say, “Nice try, you’re still an asshole.
