Zack Snyder’s Justice League triggered a lot of pent up tension that was already there in the production of 2017 theatrical version of the movie. Actor Ray Fisher, who plays Cyborg in the movie, accused Joss Whedon of creating a toxic work-environment for everyone.

Whedon fired back at Fisher after months of non-responsiveness, taking shots at the actor’s skills and character. It seems Fisher is still standing his ground as he received massive support from fans after Whedon’s attempt at discrediting the actor.

Warner Bros took to Twitter in order to commemorate black superheroes such as Deadshot (Will Smith), Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett) and Bloodsport (Idris Elba). The wrote in the tweet:

Fisher could not stand this, and suggested that Warner Bros. could try apologize to the real people of color in their project who had to withstand being subject to the company’s “racist and discriminatory practices“.

Fans order reaction that was in support of Fisher when Warner Bros initially tweeted out their celebration for Black History Month. However, others felt that Fisher was not the one with whom they should fight with, and instead supported Warner Bros.
