Ruby Rose is not holding back anymore.
The 35-year-old former Batwoman sstar took to Instagram story on Tuesday night (October 19) to shed light on what really happened on the set of the CW show leading up to her shocking exit after season one.
See all that she said inside…
Ruby has previously said that she is proud of what they did do with the show in the first season, and has even praised and sent her love to the new Batwoman Javicia Leslie, and later to Wallis Day, who was cast in Ruby‘s role in season two.
See Ruby’s entire Instagram story statements below…
“Dear CW … Enough is enough. I’m going to tell the whole world what really happened on that set,” she prefaced before going into details, tagging showrunner Caroline Dries and producers Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. “I will come for you so what happened to me never happens to another person again. And so I can finally take back my life and the truth. Shame on you.”
“[Former Warner Bros. Television Group Chairman] Peter Roth, you are first up. You are chapter one. not sure if you left after getting promoted to the highest position because you couldn’t stop making young women steam your pants, around your crotch while you were still wearing said pants or if you left after putting a private investigator on me who you fired as soon as the report didn’t fit your narrative. either way, when it comes to you, there’s already an army waiting for u.”
Ruby then shared photos of her neck injury that she suffered on set.
“Cut to 3 weeks later after this video it’s worse than abnormal. this was diagnosed years ago on set but if I got an XRay ‘we wouldn’t make our day’ I have documented this for years,” Ruby wrote. “On top of that I have enough documentation to make a 1 hour documentary..pray tell what else would you like me to shared, the broken neck or the broken rib split in two and the tumor?”
“To everyone who said I was too stiff on batwoman.. imagine going back to work 10 days after this … 10 DAYS!!!!!! (or the whole crew and cast would be fired and I’d let everyone down because Peter Roth said he wouldn’t recast and i just lost the studio millions (by getting injured on his set) that is be the one who cost so many people their jobs. Instead of spending half a day to rewrite me out for a few weeks to heal)”
“Imagine taking a huge pay cut to play a passion project and being so excited about Comic-Con and then being told they would not adjust the schedule so I could attend… but then saying ‘we won’t announce it, you have to.’ And me putting my foot down and sayin why must I be the face of this??? Only to be told if I didn’t do this video they would be silent and people would turn up to find out on the day I wasn’t there…. I folded, I wanted to do what it took… But then being told ‘cover your scar, we don’t want to see that scar on the video’ and u wonder why I posted my surgery video.”
“So in closing, please to my dear, dear fans stop asking if I will return to that awful show, I wouldn’t return for any amount of money nor if a gun were to my head.. NOR DID I QUIT,” Ruby continued. “I DO NOT QUIT, They ruined Kate Kane and they destroyed batwoman, not me. I followed orders, and if I wanted to stay i was going to have to sign my rights away. any threats, any bullying tactics or blackmail will not make me stand down.. A crew member got 3rd degree burns over his whole body, and we were given no therapy after witnessing his skin fall off his face but I was the only one who sent him flowers and cards and then were told we had to do a sex scene without a minute to process, we lost 2 stunt doubles, i got cut in the face so close to my eye in a stunt I could have been blind. a woman was left quadriplegic and they tried to blame it on her being on her phone, so much so CW didn’t even help her to start with because they needed to ‘investigate’ so she had to do a go fund me… she’s a PA, they work via phones. Her accident occurred because our show refused to shut down when everyone else did because of Covid.”
“[Caroline Dries] has no heart and wanted us to finish the season throughout the pandemic and I told her it was a bad idea… i told her everyone was too distracted, constantly checking Covid updates checking on friends and seeing riverdale, the flash and super girl shut down already, i felt something bad would happen and [Dries] maybe visited the set 4 times in a year… UNHEARD OF..” she added. “but in those 4-5 visits she decided she could tell me she knew my injury happened on set so i should comply with the PI, yet later denied it entirely and said it happened during yoga lol I don’t do yoga. and now someone will never walk again. We shut down the next day.. not because she almost killed someone but the government pulled it.”
Ruby then called out two of her former co-stars Dougray Scott, who left the show after season two, and Camrus Johnson, who now plays Batwing.
“Also, I fought people on set, yes, not because i wanted to but because I wanted safety. Ask anyone in hair and make up what I did for them, after two were hospitalized, the only people who came out and spoke was Dougray who … talk about unprofessional. Called my agent after my exit to find a way to leave to which she replied.. ‘break your neck i guess’ yet slammed me in the press.. I never raised my voice on a set, never have.. Dougray hurt a female stunt double he yelled like a little b–ch at women and was a nightmare. He left when he wanted and arrived when he wanted he abused women and in turn as a lead of a show i sent an email asking for a no yelling policy, they declined.”
“I was late one time, because I was in hospital. Whoever does these stupid leaks I’m finding out who but it’s Camrus, who after I left hospital said ‘yeah well maybe if people were not Late we would make our days.. a kid.. a egomaniac kid who worked one day a week had the audacity… or the stunt department who were furious Even though i never blamed them. But i went on [The Tonight Show] and spoke of my injury, and didn’t play the game. Aside from them I was loved and loved my crew. Oh and they wouldn’t drive me to work and knew I couldn’t legally drive after surgery.. so they said ‘get a taxi’”
A source also spoke out shortly following Ruby‘s exit hinting that the behind-the-scenes was not really going that great, claiming Ruby didn’t like the long hours and that she wasn’t happy working on the show.
