Legends of Tomorrow star Caity Lotz has joined the chorus of actors speaking out following the suspension of The Flash and Supergirl showrunner Andrew Kreisberg amid allegations of sexual harassment.
“To the brave women and men who are coming forward to condemn their abusers… I add my voice to the choir of support,” Lotz wrote on Twitter. “You are the ones ushering in change that would allow all of us to work in an environment where we are respected and safe,” it ended.

Lotz’s statement follows those made by fellow Arrowverse stars Emily Bett Rickards and Melissa Benoist, who offered support for those speaking out in the wake of the allegations, calling for industry change. Her sentiments also echoed Arrow star Stephen Amell, who backed his co-stars and promised to “stand right beside them, right behind them.”
The allegations against Kreisberg, which he denied, are the latest in a series of accusations leveled against prominent men in the entertainment industry. Apart from the likes of Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey, Star Trek actor George Takei was accused of misconduct, DC Entertainment fired longtime editor Eddie Berganza, while actresses Ellen Page and Anna Paquin revealed the harassment of director Brett Ratner on the set of X-Men: The Last Stand.
Warner Bros. Television’s internal investigation regarding the allegations against Kreisberg is continuing.
