Ruby Rose Alleges Gruesome Injuries, Toxic Behavior on ‘Batwoman’ Set
“I will come for you so what happened to me never happens to another person again,” actress wrote on Instagram
Actress Ruby Rose detailed the injuries and difficult working conditions she says she and others endured while making the CW Arrowverse series, Batwoman.
Rose — who left Batwoman in May 2020 — leveled her allegations in a series of posts on Instagram Stories, which included video from doctors’ visits post-injury. She also detailed alleged injuries suffered by crew members and stunt people, while she accused Warner Bros. Television executive, Peter Roth, of hiring a private investigator to track her.
“Enough is enough,” Rose wrote in her first post, which was addressed to the CW, Batwoman showrunner Caroline Dries, and Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter of the show’s production company Berlanti Productions. “I’m going to tell the whole world what really happened on that set… 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.”
Rose shared a handful of videos from doctors’ visits regarding injuries to her ribs and neck. Reposting a clip made during a neck surgery she underwent in 2019, Rose wrote, “To everyone who said I was too stiff on Batwoman, imagine going back to work 10 days after this … 10 DAYS! (Or the whole crew and cast would be fired and I’d let everyone down because [Warner Bros. exec] Peter Roth said he would recast and I just lost the studio millions (by getting injured on his set). … Instead of spending half a day to rewrite me out for a few weeks to heal.”
Rose went on to say she would never return to Batwoman for “any amount of money nor if a gun were to my head,” although also clarified that she did not quit. “They ruined 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.”
She then went on to share allegations involving dangerous workplace conditions and injuries she says were suffered by herself and others on the set. Rose claimed a crew member “got 3rd degree burns over his whole body, and we were given no therapy after witnessing his skin fall off his face.” She claimed that soon after, she was told she “had to do a sex scene without a minute to process.” Additionally, she said the show lost two stunt doubles, and she was once cut so close to the eye while doing a stunt, “I could have been blind.”
Rose also claimed that a PA was “left quadriplegic” following an incident on the set. While the incident was allegedly blamed on the woman being on her phone, Rose noted, “she’s a PA, they work via phones.” Rose added that the incident “occurred because our show refused to shut down when everyone else did because of Covid,” and that the showrunner, Dries, “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.” Rose said when the show was finally shut down it was not because of the PA’s injury, but because of the government mandate.
Elsewhere in her posts, Rose addressed Roth, the Warner TV exec, saying he allegedly made “young women steam [his] pants, around your crotch while you were still wearing said pants,” and that he allegedly hired a private investigator to track Rose, but fired them “as soon as the report didn’t fit your narrative.” “When it comes to you, there’s already an army waiting for u,” Rose wrote.
She also leveled several accusations against Batwoman co-star Dougray Scott: “Dougray hurt a female stunt double, he yelled like a little bitch at women and was a nightmare. He left when he wanted and arrived when he wanted, he abused women and in turn, as a lead of a show, I sent an email out asking for a no yelling policy, they declined.”

How I feel the scene from 5x05 should have done (SPOILERS).
Buck: I’ve decided to put in for a transfer.
Bobby: Last time I checked I’m still the boss you’re not transferring.
Buck: I couldn't stop Chimney from leaving and I made things bad again.
Hen: It’s not your fault Chim left, Buck. You couldn't have stopped him anyway.
Buck: Don’t worry Ravi will replace me perfectly fine.
Eddie: Yeah, no you're not leaving.
Buck: You make a compelling argument. I’ll stay.

To warn as not many posts do, this contains minor spoilers of the first and currently sole season of the tv series named Squid Game. Specific focus will be on Cho Sang-Woo.
This is someone who from the get-go reminded me of one of my favourite literature characters, Henry Winter (The Secret History, Donna Tartt / Sept. 1992). His ruthlessness and capacity for survival in situations where the stakes are high and death is lurking was admirable and from a viewers perspective, great writing. These are elements that Winter too possessed. So it was not surprising to read that both are often classified as INTJs.
I haven’t dipped around many threads discussing peoples favourites and least favourites but wasn’t amazed that majority said Sang-Woo was irredeemable, villainous and cruel. But I don’t think that is right. He did do things that were morally questionable and straight out wrong, but at the end of the day it was about survival, whether long-term or immediate. Those few seconds mattered, and that one player did not need to suffer. Another characteristic relating to his ability to kill I found intriguing was his ability to shut out the noise of the outer world and also the demons and difficulties of his mind in order to do what had to be done.
It’s clear I enjoy morally grey, controversial and even hated characters but I have to applaud the writers of the show, and the actor, for such an interesting, quite unique character. Going from a poor background and making it into one of the top universities in Korea only to fall down and make it on the police forces wanted list - I have to say, I’m a sucker for these types of people.
