Following Charisma Carpenter, who played Cordelia Chase on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and it’s spin off Angel taking to twitter to shared her experience working with Buffy creator Joss Whedon, writer and executive producer Marti Noxon, has commented on the allegations.
Noxon, became the showrunner for the final two seasons of the show, and took to Twitter to show her support.
Noxon wrote in a statement on Twitter:
I would like to validate what the women of Buffy are saying and support them in telling their story. They deserve to be heard. I understand where Charisma, Amber, Michelle and all the women who have spoken out are coming from.
In Nov. 2017, Noxon supported “Mad Men” writer Kater Gordon’s allegations of misconduct against showrunner Matthew Weiner.
In the wake of the investigation into Whedon’s on set behaviour whilst working on the Justice League, Carpenter has accused Whedon of a hostile and abusive work environment with other cast members showing support and sharing their stories on social media including Sarah Michelle Gellar, Clare Kramer, Michelle Trachtenberg, Anthony Head, J. August Richards, Emma Caulfield, James Marsters & Amber Benson.
Earlier today responding to Carpenter’s original post, Eliza Dushku – who played Faith in the supernatural drama – posted on social media using the hashtag #IStandWithCharismaCarpenter.
