Justice League's Ray Fisher Speaks Out Against Joss Whedon's Unprofessional Performance on Set

Ray Fisher, who starred as Cyborg in 2017's "Justice League" is speaking out against Joss Whedon and the treatment he received while working for him. The actor has gone on the record to retract the praise he had given to Whedon while at Comic-Con 2017. 

After posting a clip of him praising Whedon, he posted, "I'd like to take a moment to forcefully retract every bit of this statement." He went on to say, "'[Whedon's] on-set treatment of the cast and crew of Justice League was gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable," Fisher wrote on Twitter Wednesday. "He was enabled, in many ways, by [producers] Geoff Johns and Jon Berg."

Following Zach Snyder's announcement that he would be releasing a director's cut of his own, Fisher has been commenting about his time working on "Justice League". On June 6, he wrote, "I don't praise [writer] Chris Terrio and @ZackSnyder for simply putting me in Justice League. I praise them for EMPOWERING me (a black man with no film credits to his name) with a seat at the creative table and input on the framing of the Stones before there was even a script!"

Whedon hasn't yet responded to Fisher's comments.
