Charisma Carpenter speaks up about the abuse she endured on the set of ´Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ : Says Joss Whedon is « abusive »


Recommended Posts

Dear everyone,

I have been roaming around Breatheheavy for years in Ghost Mode. Finally decided to start my first topic about a show that is dear to my heart and I am sure, to many other gays on here. I have no idea how this works as I’m writing this from my phone so a little indulgence please 😁

I came cross Charisma Carpenter’s (aka Cordelia Chase) Instagram post about the abuse she suffered on the set of both ´Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ and ‘Angel’.


It saddens me to know that the creator of my favorite show of all time, a show about female empowerment, is low-key an abuser and misogynist d#ck. :whitneyshade_whitney_Houston_mad_really_blink_seriously_hmm_umm_done: (can’t believe I actually manage to insert this.)
 

Hoping to connect with my fellow Buffy fans and maybe start socialising wether it’s here or on Instagram. 

 

Much love to you all.

Yeah, he fired Charisma during Angel because she got pregnant :orangu_orangutan_ape:

I knew it, I kept telling my friends I was sure of it, but she never really said anything about it and even denied the claims 😕, but I mean, come on guurrlll :angietea_angelina_jolie_tea_sips_coffee_mug_cup_drink_spilling_spill:

Amazing of them to speak up, i'm glad SMG said something too!

I thought was very decent of her to comment on it so promptly too. She’s not stayed silent and messed around. Boom. Statement done. No more said about it. 
 

Michelle, Clare & Amber speaking up too.
 

All these riddles. TELL US ha!

so at the end of the day what he have done? being rude isn't a crime :beynah_beyonce_talking_telling_preaching:

Haha, well I do get your point @OnlyBeyoncebut he did contribute to a toxic atmosphere in the workplace and he should be called out on that.

Also these actresses made profite off of him and his show and even though they were victims it’s a bit hypocrite of them to play the victim up to a 100% when they did have a choice and could have left but chose to endure this vile behaviour in exchange forban enormous pay check at the end of the month per each episode they were in
 

Still they should speak up in order for it never to happen again and to let everybody know how much of an abusive boss he is.

honestly i'm scared of this system of calling out people after 20 years. I mean, how in the hell someone can defend himself after all that time?

We don’t know fully what he did, but judging by what Charisma Carpenter, Amber Benson and Michelle Trachtenberg have said I’m thinking he did more than just calling them fat or whatever.

It’s the current system, back then people were afraid to speak up, nobody said anything, if u did you’d be blacklisted, you’d receive threats at home, your family would have a hard time finding jobs, they would ruin you, hollywood was evil, still is but more so back then. It’s difficult to look at things with a silver lining, it causes trauma that lasts years! I think it’s right for them to speak up now, it’s becoming trendy I know but it’s something they couldn’t have done back then and and now people are more aware and more likely to speak up and that’s good !
