Melissa Benoist & Emily Bett Rickards Release Powerful Statements Following 'Arrow' Producer Andrew Kreisberg's Suspension

Over the weekend, the Arrowverse was shook after producer Andrew Kreisberg was suspended following sexual harassment and assault allegations.

Variety reports that over 19 women and 4 men have accused the Arrow and Supergirl producer of inappropriate behavior on their sets in Vancouver.

After a few days of silence on social media, Melissa Benoist and Emily Bett Rickards have both spoken out about the situation.

“We were recently made aware of some deeply troubling allegations regarding one of our showrunners,” Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter, who head Berlanti Productions which oversee Kreisberg’s shows, shared with the trade paper.

They add, “We have been encouraging and fully cooperating with the investigation into this by Warner Bros. There is nothing more important to us than the safety and well-being of our cast, crew, writers, producers and any staff. We do not tolerate harassment and are committed to doing everything we can to make an environment that’s safe to work in and safe to speak up about if it isn’t.”
