With Javicia Leslie playing the new Batwoman and Wallis Day taking over the role of Kate Kane, fans thought that Ruby Rose was already done with the role. Fast-forward to today, and Rose has just opened up about unsafe work conditions and misconduct on the set of Batwoman that eventually led to her exit.
In a series of IG stories (via Variety), Rose calls out specific people connected to the show that led to her miserable experience. She writes:
“To everyone who said I was too stiff on bawoman [sic], imagine going back to work 10 days after this … 10 DAYS!!!!!! (or the whole crew and cast would be fired and I’d let everyone down because Peter Roth said he wouldn’t recast and i just lost the studio millions (by getting injured on his set) that is [sic] be the one who cost so many people their jobs.”
Several more have been called out besides Roth, and Rose has also shared some images of her in the hospital with the injuries that she sustained on set.
Of course, WBTV is not having any of it, and is accusing Rose of sharing ‘revisionist history.’ They released a statement, but was called out by Justice League star Ray Fisher who, like Rose, has claimed that WB has tried to keep him quiet after he came out with accusations of misconduct on the set of JL.
Specific people were named, and WB’s defense is to generalize Ruby Rose’s account by making it seem like they’re taking wild swings at everyone in every department? 🤦🏾♂️

After months of Rose being made to look like the difficult person when it came to her exit, the videos and photos of her injury explain a lot about her side of things. With WB already in hot water with Fisher’s accusations, fans are hoping that they manage to fix their internal problems to avoid any further problems with cast and crew.
In the meantime, Batwoman is still going and new episodes air on Wednesdays on The CW.
