David Boreanaz has finally broken the silence and spoke in the support of his former Buffy the Vampire Slayer co-star Charisma Carpenter, who claims to be abused and misconducted by Joss Whedon on the supernatural series.

In Buffy from 1997 through 2003 as Angel and the spinoff Angel from 1999-2004, Boreanaz was cast in a leading role. Boreanaz tweeted on Sunday, “I am here for you to listen and support you. Proud of your strength.”

“I know you’re there for me, David. I appreciate all you’ve done to demonstrate that support privately as well. Especially since Wednesday.. thank you so much”, Carpenter replied.

Ray Fisher, known for his portrayal of Cyborg in the DC Extended Universe, had accused Whedon of being “gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable” to him and others on the set of Warner Bros Justice League film. Carpenter said she supported Fisher’s complaint.

According to Carpenter’s post last week, Whedon allegedly abused her, calling her fat when she was pregnant and asking her in a private meeting if she planned on keeping her child.

Carpenter wrote, “Whedon proceeded to attack my character, mock my religious beliefs, accuse me of sabotaging the show, and then unceremoniously fired me the following season once I gave birth.”

She said that Whedon ‘has a history of being casually cruel’ and mishandled his power as a TV producer.
