Warner Bros Television has once again stepped in to defend actor Dougray Scott after Ruby Rose made several accusations about him on the set of Batwoman.
Rose took to social media last week and spoke out about how she was allegedly treated while she was on the show. Later in the day, the studio came out and reiterated that Rose was fired over “multiple complaints about workplace behavior.”
“We condemn the comments made by Ruby Rose about Dougray Scott. Warner Bros. has found Mr. Scott to be a consummate professional and never received any allegation against him of bullying, or of abusive behavior on his part. Mr. Scott was greatly respected and admired by his colleagues, and was a leader on the set,” the studio said in a statement. “Warner Bros. Television did not pick up Ruby Rose’s option for an additional season because of multiple complaints about workplace behavior that were extensively reviewed by the Studio.”
Over the weekend, Rose doubled down on her claims as she slammed Scott and threatened legal action against executive producer Greg Berlanti.
“Dougray. I have too many witnesses coming forward with worse than just your anger Issues [stet].. but ur sueing me for 10 million cos @gberlanti shared his lawyer with you.. please.. come first so I can use the money from that case to take on g berlanti,” she wrote on Instagram stories.
Scott has not filed any lawsuits against his former co-star but did issue a statement last week, condemning Rose’s accusations and claims against him.
“As Warner Bros. Television has stated, they decided not to exercise the option to engage Ruby for season two of Batwoman based on multiple complaints about her workplace behaviour,” Scott said. “I absolutely and completely refute the defamatory and damaging claims made against me by her; they are entirely made up and never happened.”
