Arrow/The Flash/Legends/Supergirl Showrunner Fired for Sexual Harassment

Wow, with all the virtue-signalling in the 4-show crossover -- with gay kisses and make-out sessions happening at a rate of once per episode or so -- this totally surprises me.

Strident virtue-signalers are never compensating for enormous personal sins, as Harvey Weinstein, Josh Wheedon, and Matt Lauer can tell you.

The Flash and Supergirl producers Warner Bros. Television has cut all ties with Andrew Kreisberg following sexual-harassment claims from multiple women involving the showrunner....

"After a thorough investigation, Warner Bros. Television Group has terminated Andrew Kreisberg’s employment, effective immediately," WB said in a statement.

...

Nineteen men and women, all of whom chose to remain anonymous, came forward to accuse the showrunner of sexual misconduct, including inappropriate touching, which took place over a period of several years. Many are current or former employees of the shows Kreisberg executive produced. Kreisberg allegedly touched people and kissed women without consent and asked for massages from female staff....

Kreisberg is said to have created a "toxic" work environment with many insiders fearing retaliation if they filed a complaint against him. (He also has routinely fired the writing staff from The Flash every season and this year had trouble staffing the show and challenges hiring women, sources say.)
