To the brave women and men who are coming forward to condemn their abusers… I add my voice to the choir of support. You are the ones ushering in change that would allow all of us to work in an environment where we are respected and safe

Stephen Amell and Caity Lotz have joined Melissa Benoist and Emily Bett Rickards in speaking out on the recent allegations pertaining to Arrowverse producer, Andrew Kreisberg. Melissa and Emily were the first two ladies to speak out when allegations against the producer came to light this past weekend.
Caity choose to use Twitter to share her statement while Stephen opted to use Facebook. For those who do not want to watch the full video, which I think you should, you can read his statement under the jump.
Candice Patton did let her fans know that she would be not speaking out on the matter, not because she didn’t want to, but because she was too angry to formulate it into words.
“I have no interest in speaking about an ongoing investigation … other than to say WB is conducting an investigation into what is being alleged against one of the producers on our show, and if they need my help in any way, shape or form, they will get it. I thought that it was appropriate before I spoke to you or before I spoke publicly, to speak with our cast and our crew, which I got the chance to do this morning. I certainly can’t pontificate in an eloquent way or in such a succinct manner like Emily did, like Melissa did, like Caity Lotz did. I stand behind and fully support everything that they said. Our biggest asset on Arrow is our crew, and further more, their biggest strength and our biggest strength is working on it as a team. I think that we can do this because we promote and we champion a safe and progressive work environment. I told them this morning, and I tell you now — and I meant it — that if anyone ever feels anything less than 100 percent safe, or anyone feels as through they aren’t allowed to express themselves and be the person that they are, that they should come to whomever they are supposed to go to and that I’ll stand right besides them, right behind them, I’ll speak on their behalf if need be. I also think that in situations like this if you’re not an active part of the solution, then you are a part of the problem. Period. That’s it. We do our best to have the best possible work environment. We will continue to do so. Again, I echo the statements made by my friend and co-worker Emily Bett Rickards, Caity Lotz, Melissa Benoist and the chorus of others that have come forward and called for a safe, progressive, equal working environment.”
