Ruby Rose Alleges Horrifying Batwoman Set Conditions Led to Her Departure 

Updated 10/20, 5:12 PM ET: Batwoman veteran Dougray Scott has also issued a statement in response to Rose's claims, saying: "I absolutely and completely refute the defamatory and damaging claims made against me by [Ruby Rose]; they are entirely made up and never happened."

Updated 10/20, 2:50 PM ET: Warner Bros. Television Group has issued an official statement in response to Rose's allegations, saying, "Despite the revisionist history that Ruby Rose is now sharing online aimed at the 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 workplace behavior that were extensively reviewed and handled privately out of respect for all concerned."

Previously: Ruby Rose took to Instagram this morning to detail her harrowing experience on the set of CW's Batwoman series. In May, the actress stepped down from her role as Kate Kane, which led to the role being recast with actress Wallis Day, but did not cite her reasons for leaving until now, stating, "Enough is enough. I'm going to tell the whole world what really happened on that set."

In a series of Instagram stories, Rose laid out a series of allegations against Batwoman's showrunner Caroline Dries, her former co-star Dougray Scott, and former Warner Bros. TV Chairman Peter Roth. These claims include:

In addition to allegations of misconduct, harassment, and unprofessionalism, Rose also detailed numerous injuries sustained on set, including witnessing a crew member receive 3rd-degree burns and a PA who was left a paraplegic. The latter claim was widely covered in the news and throughout the film community, which raised funds to support Amanda Smith's recovery. Rose shared these horrifying allegations just days after IATSE reached a tentative deal with AMPTA, following weeks of reporting about unsafe working conditions on sets across the country that may lead to union members rejecting the deal.

Rose also shared images from her own time in the hospital, where she was treated for a neck injury that she sustained during a stunt on the set of Batwoman. Rose explained that one of the reasons she was "stiff" on the series was because she was made to return to set ten days after surgery, after Roth threatened that "the whole cast and crew would be fired" because she had been injured on "his set." She criticized the series for not writing around her injury and allowing her the time to heal.

She went on to explain a situation surrounding San Diego Comic-Con and the video that she shared to Instagram at the time, where she was told to "cover your scar, we don't want to see that scar." Her scar is visible in the video and she stated that it was one of the reasons that she chose to publicly share her surgery video.

Over the past few years, Warner Bros. has faced a number of serious allegations surrounding their superhero projects, including Ray Fisher and Gal Gadot's claims against Joss Whedon on the set of Justice League. At this time, Warner Bros. has not responded to Rose's allegations of misconduct on the set of Batwoman.
