Andrew Kreisberg, an executive producer on the CW and Warner Bros. TV shows The Flash, Supergirl, DC's Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow, has been suspended following multiple allegations of sexual harassment.
In a statement to Variety, Warner Bros. TV Group wrote: "We have recently been made aware of allegations of misconduct against Andrew Kreisberg." The statement continues, "We have suspended Mr. Kreisberg and are conducting an internal investigation. We take all allegations of misconduct extremely seriously, and are committed to creating a safe working environment for our employees and everyone involved in our productions."
Several sources that spoke to Variety have alleged that Kreisberg touched people without their permission, made sexual comments on the appearances and clothing of women, kissed women without permission, asked for massages from female staff members and created a hostile and toxic workplace environment. One writer said "It was an environment in which women — assistants, writers, executives, directors — were all evaluated based on their bodies, not on their work."
One woman recalled Kreisberg remarking to a female co-worker: "Wow, you look so tired that I don’t even want to have sex with you anymore." The comment was said within earshot of the woman's children.
Kreisberg has denied the allegations against him. "I have made comments on women’s appearances and clothes in my capacity as an executive producer, but they were not sexualized. Like many people, I have given someone a non-sexual hug or kiss on the cheek," Kreisberg said to Variety.
