'Supergirl's Melissa Benoist Comments on Andrew Kreisberg's Sexual Assault Allegations

13 Novembre 2017

Warner Bros. Television released a statement regarding the allegations against Kreisberg late Friday: "We have recently been made aware of allegations of misconduct against Andrew Kreisberg", the statement said. "The workplace feels unsafe", one woman told the outlet, while a male writer from one of the series added, "It was an environment in which women - assistants, writers, executives, directors - were all evaluated based on their bodies, not on their work".

The statement comes shortly after Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist and Chyler Leigh weighed in on the allegations - and none of the three actresses addressed Kreisberg by name.

Kreisberg, who also is exec producer on CW shows "Arrow", "The Flash" and "DC's Legends of Tomorrow", is alleged by 19 people to have asked for massages from female staff members, made continuous sexual comments, and created an extremely uncomfortable work environment, particularly for female staffers. "But I'm an optimist".

Stabbing Confirmed at Mall of America
Bloomington police tweeted that a suspect is in custody, and that a media availability will be held at 8:30 p.m. At 6:44 p.m., officers responded to reports of a stabbing in the fitting room of Macy's men's department.

"W$3 hen people commit crimes or harass others, they should always be held accountable - no matter what industry they work in or how much power they wield", she wrote in a statement that was posted on Twitter on Sunday night. I have always tried to conduct myself this way personally, as well. I believe lasting change is possible, and when people are mistreated, they should have a safe forum to speak their trust and always be heard. "I've spoke up about it in the past - publicly and not so publicly - and I'll continue to do so". Sadly, the show and my career are a part of an industry that doesn't always mirror these sentiments. "All of us should, without fear or shame", she charged.

"This is heartbreaking, and at times makes me feel helpless", she continued.

She goes on to say that she will return back to Supergirl this week with the commitment of "being a part of changing the norm by listening when people speak up, and refusing to accept an environment that is anything less than a safe, respectful and collaborative space".
