Ruby Rose Alleges Unsafe Work Conditions On ‘Batwoman’, Warner Bros. Says She Was Fired Due To ‘Behavior’
Rose alleged the show forced her back to work just 10 days after recovering from major surgery because of a work-related injury.
The actor also alleged that a toxic workplace led to her departure. Rose went on Instagram stories to share that she did not “quit” the CW series, but she was forced to leave amid unsustainable work conditions, including set-related injuries and safety issues.
Rose tagged Batwoman writer Caroline Dries and executive producers Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter, writing, “I will come for you so what happened to me never happens to another person again. And so I can finally take back my life and the truth. Shame on you.”
Rose broke news about their exit from the show on Instagram back in May 2020. She wrote, “It wasn’t an easy decision but those who know, know… I stay silent because that’s my choice for now but know I adore you all.”
The actor made history as T.V.’s first openly gay superhero but the role didn’t last long after she underwent surgery for two herniated discs from filming in 2019. Rose posted their footage of the operation on Instagram.
“Imagine going back to work 10 days after this,” she wrote.
She also claimed she was forced to return and was told if they didn’t, “the whole crew and cast solid be fired, and I’d let everyone down because Peter Roth said he wouldn’t recast and I just lost the studio millions (by getting injured on set.)”
Rose also alleged multiple people were injured on set and one crewmember suffered “third-degree burns over his whole body.”
Warner Bros. T.V. addressed Rose’s allegations in a statement: “Despite the revisionist history that Ruby Rose is now sharing online aimed at producers, the cast and crew, the network, and the studio, the truth is that Warner Bros. Television had decided not to exercise its option to engage Ruby for season two of Batwoman based on multiple complaints about workspace behavior that were extensively reviewed and handled privately out of respect for all concerned.”
Casual reminder that Ruby Rose was seen as the villain in the situation and was ridiculed by many people for it when they first left the show. Glad they came forward about their experience. https://t.co/xT3zgZlcoP

Rose says she suffered injuries while working, such as a broken neck, fractured rib that split in two, and even a tumor.
