Ruby Rose cites horrible working conditions as reason for exit from Batwoman




Australian model and actor, Ruby Rose has opened up about leaving the CW television series, Batwoman.

She did this via several Instagram Story posts. Rose alleged that her time on the series was a horrible work experience. She wrote,

“I will come for you so what happened to me never happens to another person again. And so I can finally take back my life and the truth. Shame on you.”

The 35 year old revealed that they were forced off of the show after one season. Then the show continued with a new lead for its second season. She wrote,

“To my dear, dear fans still asking if I will return to that awful show, I wouldn’t return for any amount of money nor if a gun were to my head…NOR DID I QUIT. I DID NOT QUIT. They ruined [my character] Kate Kane and they destroyed Batwoman, not me. I followed orders, and if I wanted to stay, I was going to have to sign my rights away. Any threats, any bullying tactics or blackmail will not make me stand down.”

In May 2020, Rose confirmed their exit from the series with a statement. The statement read,

“I have made the very difficult decision to not return to Batwoman next season. This was not a decision I made lightly as I have the utmost respect for the cast, crew and everyone involved with the show in both Vancouver and in Los Angeles…Thank you to everyone who made season one a success—I am truly grateful.”

However, in their latest Instagram Stories, Rose alleged that the decision was not their own and also dropped several allegations that paint that Batwoman set as an unsafe working environment.

The actor claimed that showrunner, Caroline Dries was rarely on set to oversee production. She posted,

“@CarolineDries has no heart and wanted us to finish the season throughout the pandemic and I told her it was a bad idea…I told her everyone was too distracted, constantly checking COVID updates, checking on friends and seeing Riverdale, The Flash and Super Girl shut down already. I felt something bad would happen and @CarolineDries maybe visited the set 4 times in a year….UNHEARD OF.”

She added,

“I fought people on set, yes. Not because I wanted to but because I wanted safety.”
