David Boreanaz, 51, is showing his support for Charisma Carpenter, 50, after she publicly accused Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator and director Joss Whedon, 56, of “abusing his power” during their time on the show.
The actor directly responded to the actress’ statement, which she tweeted on Feb. 10, and and revealed he is “proud” of her. “I am here for you to listen and support you. Proud of your strength,” the Feb. 14 tweet read along with a red heart and praying hands emoji.
David’s tweet comes after other Buffy stars already reacted to Charisma’s shocking allegations against Joss. Sarah Michelle Gellar, 43, who played the main role of Buffy on the series, was quick to show her support with an Instagram message that was posted on the same day Charisma’s statement went public.
“While I am proud to have my name associated with Buffy Summers, I don’t want to be forever associated with the name Joss Whedon.” she wrote in the message. “I am more focused on raising my family and surviving a pandemic currently, so I will not be making any further statements at this time. But I stand with all survivors of abuse and am proud of them for speaking out.”
