Ray Fisher just expressed his disappointment on WarnerMedia’s recent decision.

A week after news broke that the ‘Justice’ star has been removed from the upcoming DC Comics standalone film ‘The Flash’, the actor has now penned a lengthy message to his fans confirming the same.

In December last year, Ray Fisher announced via Twitter that he won’t participate in any production associated with DC Films President Walter Hamada, branding him, “the most dangerous kind of enabler” following his allegations about alleged misconduct by director Joss Whedon and producers Geoff Johns and Jon Berg on 2017’s ‘Justice League’ set.

In a statement posted on Twitter, the 33-year-old actor who played Cyborg in DCEU’s ‘Justice League’ and ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ clears up what he believes are a few misconceptions surrounding the story and says, “no one, in any profession, should have to argue with their employer for their claims of abuse, racism, and discrimination to be taken up the proper chain of command. And no one, in any position of leadership, should attempt to dissuade those wishing to report such claims from doing so.”

“Walter’s actions have transformed this narrative from an investigation of on-set misconduct in 2017 to the examination of the present-day cover-up culture of Hollywood,” he added.

Speaking about the impact his actions will have on the industry, he added “and if the end of my time as Cyborg is the cost for helping to bring awareness and accountability to Walter Hamada’s actions – I’ll pay it gladly.”
