Author Maureen Ryan, who broke the news of Andrew Kreisberg’s March 2023 arrest for Vanity Fair, previously spoke to 19 sources in 2017 who alleged that he exhibited inappropriate verbal and/or physical behavior in their shared workplace. Warner Bros. ended up firing Andrew Kreisberg in November of 2017.
After Kreisberg’s firing, lead “Supergirl” actor Melissa Benoist published a lengthy statement addressing the situation, without naming him by name, to her Instagram account. “This is heartbreaking, and at times makes me feel helpless. I know I’m not the only one who feels this way. But I’m an optimist. I believe lasting change is possible, and when people are mistreated, they should have a safe forum to speak their truth and always be heard,” she wrote.
Ryan contacted some of Kreisberg’s former co-workers in light of his recent arrest. “Honestly, hearing about this arrest is horrifying,” one of them stated.
