Trouble in Hollywood? Justice League Actor Accuses Director Joss Whedon of “Abusive” Behavior on Set

Published

on

Actor Ray Fisher recently accused director Joss Whedon of “gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable” during the set of the 2017 film “Justice League.”

In a viral tweet released on July 1, 2020, Fisher also asserted that former Warner Bros. co-president of production Jon Berg and former DC Entertainment president and chief creative officer Geoff Johns were responsible for enabling Whedon’s alleged misconduct on “Justice League.”

Berg and Johns were also producers on “Justice League,” and the film’s dismal performance played a major role in their departure as the leaders of the DC Films unit at the studio.

Fisher did not provide any concrete evidence to back up his claim.

When Variety reached out to Berg, he declared it was “categorically untrue that we enabled any unprofessional behavior.”

“I remember [Fisher] being upset that we wanted him to say ‘Booyaa,’ which is a well known saying of Cyborg in the animated series,” Berg continued.

Whedon, who gained fame for his director role in Marvel Studios’ hit movies “The Avengers” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, assumed the director role of Justice League after Zack Snyder was forced to step down from his role because of a death in his family.

The film received mixed reviews and it grossed $657.9 million worldwide, which was a disappointing figure given the film’s high expectations going in.

Back in 2017 during a “Justice League” panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Fisher described Whedon as “a great guy” and declared that Snyder “picked a good person to come in and clean-up — and finish up for him.”

“I’d like to take a moment to forcefully retract every bit of this statement,” Fisher tweeted.

Due to the hysterical nature of America since the death of George Floyd, accusations from politically correct Hollywood actors should be taken with a grain of salt.

Airbnb CEO Says Wuhan Virus Will Fundamentally Transform Domestic Travel

Post-pandemic America will not look the same.

Published

on

Brian Chesky, the CEO of Airbnb, said to Reuters on January 14, 2021 that domestic travel patterns will not revert to pre-Wuhan virus pandemic standards.

In a Zoom call with Jonathan Weber, the global technology editor for Reuters, Chesky said that business travel will move towards leisure travel due to the fact that software like Zoom facilitates teleconferencing at unprecedented rates. 

Furthermore, Chesky speculates that people won’t be visiting America’s largest cities as much as before, nor will they stay at crowded hotels. Instead, he believes that “many people will travel by car – some will travel by plane – and they’re going to travel to thousands of smaller communities. And many of these communities are going to be smaller cities and or even rural areas.” 

Additionally, the Airbnb CEO notes that “farm stays are huge right now” and that national parks travel will become a major trend among travelers in the upcoming months. The latter will grow, in Chesky’s view, because most Americans have not visited such parks.

According to an Airbnb survey, 54% of Americans have plans of traveling in 2021 or they’re in the process of planning out their trips for the summer. Chesky asserted that travelers are “yearning for what was taken away from them.” He added, “they’re not yearning to see Times Square. What they are yearning to do is to see their friends and their families they have not seen in a long time.”

Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge raised an interesting point about this change in Americans’ travel patterns:

If Chesky is right about the significant travel shift, the hotel industry could be slated for a massive wave of bankruptcies and or consolidation to a degree never before seen.  

Regardless, Americans are getting tired of the Wuhan virus lockdowns. Millions of Americans have had their freedoms infringed upon thanks to politicians who want to exploit a generalized crisis for their own gain. 

If Republicans were smart, they would be unapologetically campaigning for their states to be reopened. Americans want to go back to their normal lives and engage in activities such as travel, which the political class has deprived them of.
