Last Friday, longtime Arrowverse showrunner Andrew Kreisberg was suspended by Warner Bros. following sexual harassment allegations. Since then, various actors in the Arrowverse — from Supergirl’s Melissa Benoist and Arrow’s Emily Bett Rickards to Flash’s Grant Gustin and Legends of Tomorrow’s Caity Lotz — have spoken out on the matter. Now, the writers of Legends of Tomorrow have spoken out on the matter as well.

“Harassment and bullying deeply impacts a writer’s life, turns the workplace into a labyrinth of fear and a culture of silence and often stops a person’s career too early,” the statement reads. “We welcome this moment as an opportunity to create lasting change.”
Kreisberg’s suspension comes at a time as more victims of sexual harassment and assault have spoken out about their experiences. This same weekend, allegations were also brought forward about DC Comics editor Eddie Berganza, who has since been fired. At time of writing, no information has been given about Kreisberg’s future with The CW beyond his suspension.
Premiering Tuesday nights on The CW, Legends of Tomorrow stars Caity Lotz, Victor Garber, Brandon Routh, Franz Drameh, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Nick Zano, Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Amy Pemberton, and Arthur Darvill.
