Ruby Rose alleges unsafe conditions on Batwoman; Warner Bros. responds

Ruby Rose took to Instagram to slam The CW and the production of Batwoman, alleging that some toxic behavior led to her leaving the series.

Her first message said, “Enough is enough. I’m going to tell the whole world what really happened on that set… I will come for you so what happened to me never happens to another person again. And so I can finally take back my life and the truth. Shame on you.”

Rose went on to share a variety of videos from doctors’ visits regarding injuries sustained to her ribs and neck, allegedly from filming the series, and explained she was forced to return to work just 10 days after having surgery. Other stories involved injuries to crew members due to negligence and singling out actor Dougray Scott by saying he was a nightmare to work with, hurt a female stunt double, and yelled at women.

Warner Bros. responded to the 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.”

An individual with knowledge of Rose’s exit told The Wrap that investigations into these complaints about Rose went on for months before Warner Bros. TV chose not to pick up her option for Season 2.

Dougray Scott also responded, saying, “I absolutely and completely refute the defamatory and damaging claims made against me by her; they are entirely made up and never happened.”

Camrus Johnson, who plays Luke Fox on the show, also weighed in, tweeting, “She was fired. And it is VERY hard to be fired when you’re the lead. Imagine what you have to do for that to happen.”

Alexander J. Baxter, a production assistant on the show, also commented by saying that Rose was a dictator on set, and that whenever she interacted with any of the PA’s, they were disregarded by her like the trash they had to pick up.

God of War coming to PC in January

God of War, the 2018 PlayStation exclusive, is coming to Windows PC on January 14, 2022. Sony announced the end of God of War’s PlayStation exclusivity via a new PC trailer.

The game will be available for $49.99 on Steam and the Epic Games Store. God of War’s Steam page is already active for players that want to pre-order. PC features listed on Steam include high fidelity graphics, including 4K resolution, DLSS and reflex support for higher frame rates and sharper graphics, and ultra-widescreen support.

The PC version will also include a collection of armor and shield skins.

Among Us is coming to PlayStation and Xbox in December

Among Us is finally heading to PlayStation and Xbox on December 14th. The game will run on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.

Just like on PC, Among Us will be included with Xbox Game Pass on consoles. Those on PlayStation, meanwhile, will get an exclusive Ratchet & Clank cosmetic at a later date. The game has crossplay support, so you’ll be able to play with friends across PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile.
