Months after blasting ‘Justice League’ director Joss Whedon on Twitter,  Cyborg actor Ray Fisher has been dropped from ‘The Flash’ movie cast.

Ray Fisher has taken to social media to confirm that he will not be reprising his role as Cyborg/Victor Stone in 2022’s The Flash. The 33-year-old has played the character in past DC films Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Cyborg and Justice League. “I have received official confirmation that Warner Bros. Pictures has decided to remove me from the cast of ‘The Flash’. I strongly disagree with their decision, but it is one that is unsurprising,” he wrote in the lengthy letter posted to his Twitter on Jan. 14.

The actor went on to explain that he had written to WarnerMedia on Dec. 30 saying that he could not work with President of DC Films Walter Hamada. “I cannot — with a clear conscience — participate in any production association with the current President of DC Films, Walter Hamada, he wrote, alleging that the executive had purposefully attempted “to undermine the Justice League investigation.” In July 2020, Ray went viral for speaking out against Justice League director Joss Whedon, 56, claiming his treatment of the cast and crew was “gross, abusive, unprofessional and completely unacceptable.” In Ray’s most recent essay, he noted his character’s role was “much larger than a cameo” in the new Flash film, which stars Ezra Miller in the title role.

Joss Wheadon’s on-set treatment of the cast and crew of Justice League was gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable.

He was enabled, in many ways, by Geoff Johns and Jon Berg.

“No one, in any profession, should have to argue with their employer for their claims of abuse, racism, and discrimination to be taken up the proper chain of command,” Ray also alleged. WarnerMedia has responded to Ray’s allegations via a statement. “As has been previously stated, an extensive investigation was conducted by an outside law firm, led by a former federal judge who has assured WarnerMedia that there were no impediments to the investigation,” the said to our sister site Deadline Hollywood. “Last summer, Mr. Fisher was offered the opportunity to reprise his role as Cyborg in The Flash. Given his statement that he will not participate in any film associated with Mr. Hamada, our production is now moving on,” they said. Learn more about Ray here.

1. He spoken out against Joss Whedon more than once. On Monday, June 29, Ray reposted of a video of himself from Comic-Con 2017 speaking about Joss after he stepped in for director Zack Snyder to finish Justice League. “I’d like to take a moment to forcefully retract every bit of this statement,” Ray tweeted. In the original video, Ray said: “Joss is a good guy, and Zack picked a good person to clean up and finish up for him,” while sitting next to co-star Jason Momoa Zack originally stepped away from the film due to a family death.

2. He’s best known for playing Cyvorg/Victor Stone. Ray was announced to be joining DC’s Justice League film series in April 2014, originally making his debut alongside Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. He reprised the role in 2017’s Justice League, starring with both Ben and Jason, as well as Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and Ezra Miller’s the Flash. The well-loved character is a founding member of the Justice League, a star athlete who became part robot and part human after a tragic accident.

3. He got his start in theatre. Prior to his roles on the big screen, Ray trained at the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey. He played Tom Robinson in their production of To Kill A Mockingbird, in addition to appearing in Macbeth. He later gained notoriety playing the legendary boxer Muhammad Ali in play Fetch Clay, Make Man, gaining 20 pounds for the role. “I started eating anything I could get my hands on. I was eating steaks for breakfast,” Ray explained in a 2013 interview with The New York Times. “Protein drinks on top of that. Ali never lifted weights. But he had a naturally bigger frame than I did, so in order for me to get to his size I had to lift — bench presses, curls, squats, calf raises. I had to get used to a new body.”

4. He grew up in New Jersey. Ray was born in Baltimore, but primarily grew up in Lawnside, New Jersey. He discovered theatre at Haddon High School, going on to attend the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York.

5. He tested for a major part in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Ray was one of the many finalists for the role of Finn in the 2015 film, according to our sister site Variety. The role eventually went to John Boyega, 25. It’s a good thing he didn’t get cast. We can’t imagine anyone else as Cyborg?

HollywoodLife has reached out to Ray and other Justice League cast members for comment.

Kanye West – Ass Shots Lyrics

[Intro: Kanye West]
I don’t know why niggas tripping on a nigga
For clippers, I hate you niggas too
But I’m black and Mexican, we gon’ change that, haha
I hate you niggas too!

[Hook: Kanye West]
If you ain’t had good pussy, nigga, try some
Your girl ain’t got no ass, she need to buy one
Out west, Southwest, where you fly from
New Jersey, Teterboro where I fly from
You ain’t got no Ghost, you need to drive one
That bitch is so broke, try to find some
And she ain’t got no money, tryna find some
I swear these bitches funny, hahaha
Hahaha, hahaha
I swear these bitches funny, hahaha
Hahaha, hahaha
You still owe me money, nigga, yeah, yeah

[Verse 1: French Montana]
Got a bad bitch at build-a-body
Get a bad bitch and build a body
When your pop, the slim nigga shady
When your pop was Slim, I was Baby
I came for them chips like I’m K.D
Came for them bricks like I’m Maisie
We hit up the trap which is booming
Hustle, French John Newman
Fuck making the move, we the movie
Fuck the whole group, I’m a groupie
All that money rolling through the lobby
VVS is dripping off my body
You can do what you want when you got it
Go get a bitch and then build her body
They wanted Versace Milan
We do what we want and then copy
Smack a Roley on my arm
Skrrr, middle fingers to the feds
Put a hundred dollars on your head
Price of life hit you
And all my dawgs gotta eat
And all the money get divided
Snipe game be the wildest
Get a bad bitch, build her body
Get a bad bitch, build her body, haan

[Hook: Kanye West]
If you ain’t had good pussy, nigga, try some
Your girl ain’t got no ass, she need to buy one
Out west, Southwest, where you fly from
New Jersey, Teterboro where I fly from
You ain’t got no Ghost, you need to drive one
That bitch is so broke, try to find some
And she ain’t got no money, tryna find some
I swear these bitches funny, hahaha
Hahaha, hahaha
I swear these bitches funny, hahaha
Hahaha, hahaha
You still owe me money, nigga, yeah, yeah

[Verse 2: Cam’ron]
Harlem to the death, I’mma forever front
A problem with the kid is what you never want
That’s what you want, I had my niggas waiting for you
Like you sitting at a table in a restaurant
Slice you like pizza, I keep six in the squeezer
My jewelry is nice, dressing is iced
It’s how you can sit in the freezer
Keep my dick in the diva, word, no problem licking it either
Baby girl could be a believer, we could just kick it like FIFA
All the women heavy like pallbearer
That Henney got that cake like Carvel
Carvel, me, I’mma die
Inside the pussy, man, I know just how Lamar felt
My bitch sit on me flat without no tummy tuck
She no stripper but all she do is pick money up
Five-o called me over, word to my homie, I ain’t tell ’em shit
He seemed aggy, so all I did was tell him this

[Hook: Kanye West]
If you ain’t had good pussy, nigga, try some
Your girl ain’t got no ass, she need to buy one
Out west, Southwest, where you fly from
New Jersey, Teterboro where I fly from
You ain’t got no Ghost, you need to drive one
That bitch is so broke, try to find some
And she ain’t got no money, tryna find some
I swear these bitches funny, hahaha
Hahaha, hahaha
I swear these bitches funny, hahaha
Hahaha, hahaha
You still owe me money, nigga, yeah, yeah

Joe Budden – I Gotta Ask lyrics

[Verse 1]
Look, standing in the cypher rocking
To driving some of the hottest cars New Jersey’s ever seen
To dropping some of the dopest mixtapes that you ever heard
And it’s all courtesy of weed, a couple of Percs, and lean, baby
I wish you niggas that would owe me some bread would come and drop it off
I wish she start tongueing a girl, but she won’t pop it off
Wish I knew you wasn’t with the shit, so what you hopping for?
When pussy’s thrown your way every nanosecond it’s not an option ya’ll
Normally a sponge, but this some shit I just cannot absorb
Why ya’ll are dressed like Metro Boomin? I wish you would knock it off
Wish the best MC didn’t mean who is more popular
But I just booked my next nine months, ready to lock and more

[Hook]
Money is a lot to grab
Before we get to it there’s a question that I gotta ask
Where’s all my niggas with the rubber grips? (bust shots)
And if you with me mama, I’m rubbin’ ya tits, and whatnot
[Verse 2]
I hear they thinkin’ bout speakin’ my name
Bet if they could I’m takin bets
Money on my hood, money on me, I’m good
Money on the wood, money on wishin’ that money would
That’s him against the wild life
And I got money on the woods, baby
Two bitches, three’s company, how I half with her
This Hennessy don’t do the trick, then watch this Jack trip her
I’m tryna’ buy a compound, I need the pad bigger
Thats seven bed rooms, eight and half baths, I figure
Bad strippers, and fraudulent hourglass figures
Got every bartender thinkin’ she’ll get a glass slipper
You see a line of bottles comin’, guess who orderin’ ’em
I’m pointin’ at one, they all coming in
Every rapper in your crew, my crew is slaughtering them
Put vegetables in your house, nobody walking again
What time you get off, I’m showing up there
Nine in one hand, .45 in the other, round quarter to ten

[Hook]
I mean, the money is a lot to grab
Before we get into there’s a question that I gotta ask
Wheres all my niggas with the rubber grips? (bust shots)
And if you with me ma, I’m rubbin’ ya tits, and whatnot

[Verse 3]
How many MC’s must get dissed?
In the great words of Buckshot my answer is “why the fuck not?”
Come to bars, I’m the same nigga that love to club hop
Don’t be the guy to get your entire team in a rough spot
We the OG, thorough niggas, huggin’ the block
Way down to the crooked businessman thats fudgin’ them docs
The early teams in the hoods out there fuckin’ with cops
Know they fuck with us back now, especially if you black now
It’s Joe
