Jason Momoa Slams Warner Bros Amid ‘Justice League’ Investigation

Jason Momoa has spoken out about his experience on the “Justice League” set, saying he, Ray Fisher, and other cast members were treated in a “s—ty way” by Warner Bros.

On Tuesday, September 8, the “Aquaman” star first showed support for Fisher and his allegations of “abusive” and “unprofessional” behavior from director Joss Whedon and producers Geoff Johns and Jon Berg while filming “Justice League.”

Momoa was the first “Justice League” star to show solidarity with Fisher, posting to his Instagram Story with the hashtag #IStandWithRayFisher.

On Monday evening, however, Momoa directly commented on his own experience while making the “Justice League.”

“This s— has to stop and needs to be looked at @ray8fisher and everyone else who experienced what [happened] under the watch of @wbpictures needs proper investigation,” Momoa wrote on Instagram.

THIS SHIT HAS TO STOP AND NEEDS TO BE LOOKED AT @ray8fisher AND EVERYONE ELSE WHO EXPERIENCED WHAT HAPPEN UNDER THE WATCH OF @wbpictures NEEDS PROPER INVESTIGATION I just think it’s fucked up that people released a fake Frosty announcement without my permission to try to distract from Ray Fisher speaking up about the shitty way we were treated on Justice League reshoots. Serious stuff went down. It needs to be investigated and people need to be held accountable. #IStandWithRayFisher. aloha j

He also said he is not in talks to voice Frosty the Snowman in an upcoming film produced by Berg and Johns, the rumour which he said is meant to distract the public from the allegations about Whedon and Warner Bros.

I just think it’s f—ed up that people released a fake Frosty announcement without my permission to try to distract from Ray Fisher speaking up about the s—ty way we were treated on ‘Justice League’ reshoots. Serious stuff went down. It needs to be investigated and people need to be held accountable.

Warner Bros.’ “Justice League” investigation began in late August, and a couple of weeks later, the company claimed that Fisher did not meet with the third-party investigator that was hired.

However, the actor fired back and disputed Warner Bros.’ claim, providing a screenshot of an email he sent to his team and SAG-AFTRA in which he claimed he had met with the investigator over Zoom as reported by Variety.
