Several Hollywood filmmakers in the past few weeks have found themselves being picked out for sexually harassing co-workers. In fact, DC Entertainment has been forced to take ownership of their actions as television producer Andrew Kreisberg was suspended while Eric Berganza was fired. After a long silence, Grant Gustin, member of the Arrowverse family, addressed his fans and expressed his complete support.
The Flash star, Grant Gustin commented about the recent accusations of sexual harassment from well-known Hollywood creators on Instagram. Talking about the rights and privileges that he enjoys, Gustin said, “Hearing of different men, again and again, especially in the industry that I work in, treating women as if they are less than, and both physically and emotionally abusing them has become a daily occurrence. This is not ok. This can’t become our new normal.” Further, he added that though he was aware of what was happening in the past few weeks, he what sure what to say. He then went on, “So let me say this. I want to be better. I want to be a better man, a better ally. And I especially want all of the women in my life to know that I hear them, I stand with them, and I support them.”

Grant Gustin’s comments comes a little after Arrow star Stephen Amell posted a video to his personal Facebook page, in which he expressed his thoughts on the sexual scandal involving TV producer Andrew Kreisberg. Among the many things Amell had said supporting women who are being treated inappropriately at work or away from the office, what was most compelling and straightforward was this comment: “I have no interest in speaking about an ongoing investigation — but if you don’t know what I’m talking about I’m sure you can figure it out — other than to say WB is conducting an investigation into what is being alleged against one of the producers on our show and if they need my help in any way, shape, or form, they will get it.”
Kreisberg worked on several Entertainment projects for DC at The CW. The DC Entertainment has so far not given any update on the pending investigation on Kreisberg.
