We, here at Small Screen, stand with Ray Fisher!
The hashtag #IStandWithRayFisher started trending today after WarnerMedia posted a message on social media following the verdict on the George Floyd case.
WarnerMedia shared a message of support for the verdict and George Floyd’s family.
They posted an image of text in which they wrote: “The work continues”
While this verdict doesn’t bring back those we’ve so wrongly lost, we know that it brings us closer to significant change. We reaffirm our commitment to be part of the solution by using our platforms, content, and resources to advance racial equity and social justice.

People then took to social media to point out the fact that they didn’t support Ray Fisher with his claims against Joss Whedon, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns.
You can have a look at what many of these people had to say in their tweets below.
People are supporting Ray Fisher and getting the hashtag #IStandWithRayFisher trending again
For years, Warner Media had the full records on Justice League producers & their Warner Bros. execs abusive and racist behavior towards Ray Fisher.
And yet, they gave all of them work and protection while sidelining & gaslighting Ray Fisher.

It’s crazy how Warner Bros went from being a beloved filmmaker driven studio to the symbol of racism and abuse in Hollywood.
Ray Fisher shined a light so bright on their evil tactics that they can’t escape it.#IStandWithRayFisher

This is just s drop in the ocean of tweets out there all supporting Ray Fisher.
The levels of hypocrisy that WarnerMedia is displaying in this tweet is just unbelievable.
They need to sort out their own house first, and then they can come out and make a statement saying that they are trying to be the change that is needed in this industry.
It’s actually pretty offensive that they would use this opportunity to promote themselves and their content.
Let’s be honest, that is what they’re doing here.
