Sarah Michelle Gellar came out in assistance of her previous Buffy the Vampire Slayer costar Charisma Carpenter on Wednesday, after Carpenter openly implicated Buffy developer Joss Whedon of mistreating her while they worked together. On Wednesday, Gellar shared a declaration on her Instagram concerning Whedon and the various allegations of misbehavior and abuse that have actually been made versus him.
” While I am happy to have my name associated with Buffy Summers, I do not desire to be permanently associated with the name Joss Whedon,” Gellar wrote in her brief declaration.
Earlier in the day, Carpenter launched her own statement, declaring that Whedon had actually accused her of “sabotaging” the Buffy spinoff series Angel with her pregnancy.
Additionally, Carpenter declared that Whedon “has a history of being delicately terrible” and that he referred to her as “fat” to colleagues when she was four months pregnant.
These are not the very first claims of abuse that have actually been brought versus Whedon.

The show was developed by Whedon and based upon the 1992 movie of the very same name, which was composed by Whedon.
Newsweek reached out to Whedon for comment, but did not hear back in time for publication.
