#MeToo Vancouver

Sexual harassment scandals rocking the entertainment industry have come to Hollywood North, with an executive producer and co-creator of four high-profile TV shows filmed in Metro Vancouver suspended amid accusations of misconduct on the job.

Andrew Kreisberg, an executive producer of “Supergirl,” “Arrow,” “The Flash,” and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” engaged in a pattern of sexual harassment, 15 men and four women told Variety Magazine.

“We have recently been made aware of allegations of misconduct,” Warner Bros. told CTV News in a statement. “We have suspended Mr. Kreisberg and are conducting an internal investigation.

The magazine detailed Kreisberg touching people without their permission, asking for massages from uncomfortable staff members and kissing women without asking.

Kreisberg has denied the reports, telling the magazine that “there never was any sexual intent or overtones” in his behaviour.

He appears to be the latest powerful man in entertainment to be swept up in the #MeToo movement, which is empowering women to relate shocking allegations that have been under wraps for years.

The star of Supergirl, Melissa Benoist, tweeted a statement apparently in reaction the allegations, but didn’t mention Kreisberg by name: “When people commit crimes or harass others they should always be held accountable, no matter what industry they work in or how much power they wield.”
