In their statement, Warner Bros TV Group stated that “We have recently been made aware of allegations of misconduct against Andrew Kreisberg. We have suspended Mr. Kreisberg and are conducting an internal investigation. We take all allegations of misconduct extremely seriously, and are committed to creating a safe working environment for our employees and everyone involved in our productions.”

Kreisberg according to sources has helped create an unsafe and uncomfortable working environment for women by making inappropriate comments towards women’s appearances, asking for a massage from female staff members and kissing and touching some women without their consent. Many of the victims were afraid that their jobs will be at risk if they reported the producer to the company’s HR. sources stated that his harassment got worse as he gained further promotions in the company.
