Justice League actor Ray Fisher has criticized WarnerMedia over its tweeted response to the Derek Chauvin verdict. Former Minneapolis policeman Chauvin has been found guilty of murdering George Floyd in May 2020.
WarnerMedia released a tweet soon after the verdict was announced yesterday, April 20. It stated that the studio reaffirmed its “commitment to be part of the solution by using our platforms, content, and resources to advance racial equity and social justice.”
However, Fisher, who has accused WarnerMedia of enabling racist and abusive behavior during the 2017 reshoots of Justice League, called out the studio for its perceived hypocrisy. He retweeted the original tweet, with an emotional response.
