This was first revealed in a report by Variety, which stated that 15 women and four men were accusing the executive producer on the CW shows "Arrow", "Supergirl", "The Flash" and "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" for sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior.
Their statements come after their big-screen superhero brethren Ellen Page and Anna Paquin took on director Brett Ratner in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations against him.
"Supergirl" castmate Chyler Leigh followed up by posting Sunday to Instagram, beginning with a Maya Angelou quote to urge women to support each other: "Each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women".
Gustin's comments follow those of Supergirl star Melissa Benoist and Arrow's Emily Bett Rickards. Kreisberg, who has worked on "The Flash", "Supergirl", "Arrow", and "Legends of Tomorrow", is now suspended by Warner Bros.
The post comes days after Warner Bros. suspended Kreisberg amid accusations of sexual harassment by multiple women, The Hollywood Reporter noted. He allegedly requested massages from female staffers, which made them "uncomfortable", and kissed women without permission.
United Nations dismisses Saudi conditions to reopen Yemen port
Saudi Arabia announced it shut down all ports after a Houthi ballistic missile attack near Riyadh's worldwide airport. The Saudi closure had drawn global condemnation and fears of a worsening humanitarian disaster in Yemen.
Berlanti Productions, the studio behind those superhero series, said Friday in a statement: "We were recently made aware of some deeply troubling allegations regarding one of our showrunners". We have been encouraging and fully cooperating with the investigation into this by Warner Bros. We will continue to do so. I think that we can do this because we promote and we champion a safe and progressive work environment.
Page posted last Friday on Facebook that he outed her as a lesbian a dozen years ago during a cast and crew meet-and-greet for X-Men: The Last Stand, when she was 18. X-Men co-star Paquin corroborated her account on Twitter. I'm in awe of not just all the women who have spoken out these last few weeks, but any woman who has ever done so.
Like Amell, Benoist also voiced out her support for the victims on Sunday.
"And so this week", Benoist added, "I'll head back to work on Supergirl even more committed to 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 collaborate space".
