WarnerMedia’s chair and CEO Ann Sarnoff has released a statement backing their head of DC Films, Walter Hamada after Ray Fisher’s latest accusations. The actor took to Twitter to post a lengthy statement of his own in which he was very damning of Hamada.
That said, Sarnoff has since released her own statement in which she claims that WarnerMedia is standing by Walter Hamada and believe “he did not impede or interfere in the investigation.” The investigation she’s referring to is the investigation into the misconduct that is alleged to have occurred during the reshoots of Justice League.
This is now starting to get very public and it all comes after it was revealed that Ray Fisher was not going to be appearing as Cyborg in the DC Comics film, The Flash. He revealed this to be true in his recent tweet.

Here’s what Sarnoff had to say about Walter Hamada in the recent statement (via The Hollywood Reporter):
I believe in Walter Hamada and that he did not impede or interfere in the investigation. Furthermore, I have full confidence in the investigation’s process and findings. Walter is a well-respected leader, known by his colleagues, peers, and me as a man of great character and integrity. As I said in Walter’s recent deal extension announcement, I’m excited about where he’s taking DC Films and look forward to working with him and the rest of the team to build out the DC Multiverse.
