Following the suspension of Arrowverse executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, The Flash star Grant Gustin has expressed his support for women who speak out against harassment, referring to them "the real superheroes."
In an Instagram post, Gustin expressed his desire to be a "better man" and "a better ally," as well as his awe for the courage it takes for victims of harassment to speak up. Gustin's statement does not mention Kreisberg by name.
Gustin is only the latest Arrowverse star to speak about sexual harassment in the wake of the accusations against Kreisberg. In a video posted on Monday, Arrow star Stephen Amell expressed solidarity and support for the women involved. Supergirl star Melissa Benoist and Arrow's Emily Bett Rickards have also expressed their support for those who spoke out.
Kreisberg was suspended following claims by 15 women and four men that he "engaged in a pattern of alleged sexual harassment and inappropriate physical contact over a period of years." He has denied the allegations, which come amid a series of high-profile accusations against Hollywood and entertainment industry figures. Ellen Page and Olivia Munn have made accusations against director and producer Brett Ratner and longtime DC Comics editor Eddie Berganza has been fired following allegations.
Airing Tuesdays on The CW, The Flash stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Jesse L. Martin, Tom Cavanagh, Carlos Valdes, Danielle Panabaker and Keiynan Lonsdale.
