WarnerMedia and Justice League investigator Katherine Forrest have disputed Ray Fisher’s recent allegations against DC Films President Walter Hamada.
Ray Fisher Tweeted these allegations against Hamada, saying he tried to “destroy a Black man’s credibility” and tried to interfere with the investigation.
“Do ya’ll remember that time Walter Hamada and @wbpictures tried to destroy a Black man’s credibility, and publicly delegitimize a very serious investigation, with lies in the press? But hey, Black Superman… A>E,” Fisher wrote.
WarnerMedia responded by saying that, following an “extensive and thorough third-party investigation,” there was no interference found whatsoever.
“Once again there are false statements being made about our executives and our company surrounding the recent Justice League investigation,” WarnerMedia said. “As we have stated before, an extensive and thorough third-party investigation was conducted. Our executives, including Walter Hamada, fully cooperated, no evidence was found of any interference whatsoever, and Warner Bros. did not lie in the press. It’s time to stop saying otherwise and move forward productively.”
Forrest, the investigator and former Federal Judge, also spoke up and said there was no interference of any kind by Hamada.

“I am disappointed by continued public statements made suggesting that Walter Hamada in any way interfered with the Justice League investigation. He did not,” Forrest said. “I interviewed him extensively on more than one occasion and specifically interviewed him concerning his very limited interaction with Mr. Fisher. I found Mr. Hamada credible and forthcoming. I concluded that he did nothing that impeded or interfered with the investigation. To the contrary, the information that he provided was useful and advanced the investigation.”
This is another development in the ongoing story following Fisher’s allegations that there was a toxic, hostile working environment under Joss Whedon, the director of the reshoots of 2017’s Justice League.
Fisher also called out Hamada, saying he is “the most dangerous kind of enabler,” and that he would not be participating in any future production that is associated with him.
