The post comes days after Warner Bros. suspended Kreisberg amid accusations of sexual harassment by multiple women, The Hollywood Reporter noted.

This was first revealed in a report by Variety, which stated that 15 women and four men were accusing the executive producer on the CW shows "Arrow", "Supergirl", "The Flash" and "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" for sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior.

"Supergirl" castmate Chyler Leigh followed up by posting Sunday to Instagram, beginning with a Maya Angelou quote to urge women to support each other: "Each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women". He allegedly requested massages from female staffers, which made them "uncomfortable", and kissed women without permission.

"Supergirl" actress Melissa Benoist and "Arrow" star Stephen Amell have previously spoken out against Kreisberg and sexual harassment in the industry. According to Amell, Warner Bros.is already investigating the matter.

Berlanti Productions, the studio behind those superhero series, said Friday in a statement: "We were recently made aware of some deeply troubling allegations regarding one of our showrunners".

"There is nothing more important to us than the safety and well-being of our cast, crew, writers, producers and any staff", the statement continued. "We do not tolerate harassment and are committed to doing everything we can to make an environment that's safe to work in and safe to speak up about if it isn't". "X-Men" co-star Anna Paquin corroborated Page's account Friday on Twitter.

Momoa apologized last month after video resurfaced of a "Game of Thrones" rape joke he made during a Comic-Con presentation in 2011. These last few weeks I haven't been sure what to say, so let me just say this.

Like Amell, Benoist also voiced out her support for the victims on Sunday.

"I've spoke up about it in the past - publicly and not so publicly - and I'll continue to do so", she said, concluding that she would return to work on "Supergirl" committed to being a part of changing the norm by listening to others when they spoke up.
