Jason Momoa is showing support for his Justice League co-star Ray Fisher.
In July, Fisher went public with claims that director Joss Whedon was unprofessional during filming.
“Joss Whedon’s on-set treatment of the cast and crew of Justice League was gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable,” Fisher tweeted on July 1. Whedon was brought in to wrap reshoots and post production on the film when director Zack Snyder stepped away from the project following a family tragedy.
Fisher additionally claimed that producers Geoff Johns and Jon Berg “enabled” Whedon’s alleged behavior. Berg has denied the claim.

Warner Bros. parent company, WarnerMedia, responded by launching an investigation into Fisher’s allegations. But earlier this month, Warner Bros. fired back at the actor in a statement to Entertainment Weekly, and said he had made a “false claim.”
Momoa defended Fisher in an Instagram post on Monday, Sept. 14.
“THIS S–T HAS TO STOP AND NEEDS TO BE LOOKED AT @ray8fisher AND EVERYONE ELSE WHO EXPERIENCED WHAT HAPPEN UNDER THE WATCH OF @wbpictures NEEDS PROPER INVESTIGATION,” Momoa captioned a picture of himself with Fisher. “I just think it’s f–ked up that people released a fake Frosty announcement without my permission to try to distract from Ray Fisher speaking up about the s–tty way we were treated on Justice League reshoots.”
The Aquaman star was referring to an upcoming Frosty the Snowman live-action movie. An “exclusive” casting announcement of the upcoming Warner Bros. project was published by a Hollywood trade on the same day as Fisher’s claims, saying Momoa had been cast in the title role.
On Monday, Fisher responded to Momoa’s comment about the “fake” Frosty announcement, by telling fans don’t believe everything they read.
“If you still think Jason playing Frosty was EVER a real thing—please wake up!” Fisher tweeted. “Hopefully now people see the depths that some are willing to go to hide the truth.”
