Warner Brothers Television decided to fire Andrew Kreisberg after women and men accused him of sexual harassment. Andrew worked as a producer for Supergirl, The Flash, Legend’s Of Tomorrow, and Arrow.
Variety reported earlier in the month that fifteen women and four men claimed Kreisberg made the environment “toxic” due to his behavior. Kreisberg initially denied all of the allegations. Be that as it may, Warner Brothers had no choice but to suspend him.
Additionally, Warner terminated all contractual obligations to the disgraced producer. In other words, he will no longer work on anything related to the company.
Warner intends to remove his name from the credits of all four shows. After Kreisberg left, Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner replaced him on Super Girl and Todd Helbing on The Flash.
In a statement released today, Warner stated that “after a thorough investigation,” Andrew Kreisberg’s employment at the enterprise is officially terminated.

When the studio forced Kreisberg off the set of their productions, several of the cast and crew members released statements regarding the fiasco.
The central star of Supergirl, Melissa Benoist, wrote a lengthy essay – which you can see above – regarding the actions of Kreisberg. However, she didn’t mention him specifically.
In her essay, she stated “we must hold ourselves to a higher standard,” and she needs to be “even more committed to being a part of changing the norm by listening when people speak up.”
As you may know, Kreisberg is just one of many men in the entertainment and journalism industry to lose his job.
After the New York Times and The New Yorker revealed thirty years of misconduct perpetrated by Harvey Weinstein, the floodgates opened, and many women came out with their stories. Most recently, Matt Lauer from The Today Show resigned from the company due to allegations of misconduct. Kevin Spacey and Louis CK suffered similar fates.
