    I'm waiting to see how many other cast members from specifically BtVS/AtS chime in. I don't believe anyone but Alan Tudyk spoke up in favor of him when this whole thing started, which speaks volumes.

    He seemed to have a select crew who he favored (Hannigan, Denisof, Acker, Dushku) while having a seemingly colder relationship with everyone else. Including the two leads: he and Gellar clashed towards the end of the shows run and her husband got involved, and Boreanaz has never seemed to gush over him the way others have. Even his "favored" actors may speak out against him or come to support Carpenter.

    Between Carpenter, Fisher, Benson and Whedon's own exwife it seems to be harder and harder to deny he's a scumbag, even if one likes his TV shows and movies.

    Is anyone compiling a list of men in Hollywood who have *not* been accused of abuse at this point?

    Why would we need to?

    If they're not doing anything wrong and just act like decent human beings, there's nothing to discuss.

    Just that it would be a shorter list and therefore easier to maintain.

    It's funny how the guy who claimed to be this staunch feminist has mostly women speaking out against him.

    Yeah, human beings are complex. Many assholes are nice to just enough people (or the right people) to get away with it. Some people are great as friends, horrible coworkers, romantic relationships etc.

    The important thing is that this took so long to come out. And that Whedon will undoubtedly have a large group of people who will still believe in. Many speaking out against him literally nothing to gain at this point.

    Takes a special shitbird to persecute a pregnant actress on you little TV show. Not like Wheadon was a big studio head at the time either. Buffy wasn't ever a top 10 show, that's not to say if it was it would be justified but in that space, he was still a boss and he thought that's how he chose to run shit.

    Shoutout to Ray Fisher, again. NOBODY in America gets the amount of unsolicited personal truth from management like a brotha.
    Beefing up the old home security, huh?
    You bet yer ass.

    Buffy herself is speaking up. Joss is toast.

    I think the ones who usually make a big production about how "woke" and "feminist" they are are usually the ones with the most to hide.

    Rob Tapert created the OTHER TV action heroine from the 90s, but I don't think he's ever pumped up a feminist reputation the way Joss has.

    Male feminist is probably second only to priest as a cover for abusive scumbags.

    When a predator is camouflaged, it makes it easier to sneak up on or surprise its prey.

    Michelle Trachtenberg reposted Sarah's message with a caption of her own:

    Thank you @sarahmgellar for saying this. I am brave enough now as a 35 year old woman.... To repost this. Because. This must. Be known. As a teenager. With his not appropriate behavior......
