Fans Urge David Boreanaz To Speak Out In Support of Charisma Carpenter After Her Claims Against Joss Whedon

Fans are calling out David Boreanaz to say anything in regards to the allegations against Joss Whedon from his longtime Angel and Buffy co-star Charisma Carpenter.

Earlier this week, the 50-year-old actress accused Joss of on set abuse and misconduct.

Many of her Buffy peers, including Sarah Michelle Gellar and Michelle Trachtenberg, have made statements in support of her. However, David has been notably silent, as pointed out by many fans.

“There is a responsibility here to stand up for what’s right and I’d always seen him do so. So why not this time?” one fan mused on Twitter about the situation. “He does have a responsibility to his cast mates and the fans. It’s worrying to see him delete his posts too. Now I feel like there’s more to the story.”

While his Twitter has been protected for quite some time, fans did notice that David had wiped almost all of his Instagram, save for one photo of his father, Dave Roberts.

“interesting response from david boreanaz ! deleting all your insta posts to magnify your silence is a new one ! cool one bro !” one fan called the SEAL Team actor out on Twitter.

While many fans are mad at David for not saying anything, they’re also calling out Alyson Hannigan for her silence as well.

Charisma is still getting a lot of support from her past Buffy and Angel co-stars, and thanking them all for being in her corner.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D's J. August Richards Comes Out as Gay

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Council of Dads star J. August Richards has come out as gay.

The 46-year-old actor revealed his sexual identity during an Instagram Live with his Council of Dads co-star Sarah Wayne Callies. In the show, he plays Dr. Oliver Post, a gay black man who is married with a daughter.

“If I think about why I even got involved in this industry, it was really to combat oppression,” J. said. “I knew how I was affected by the people of color I saw on television, or that I didn’t see on television, so this being a married, gay man, with a family … on television, I don’t take anything I do lightly, and you have an opportunity to put an image into millions of homes. I wanted that image to be honest and I wanted it to be correct.”

“Honestly, it required me to show up fully in a way that I don’t always when I’m working,” he said, before adding, “I knew that I could not portray this gay man honestly without letting you all know that I am a gay man myself. I’ve never done that with the people that I’ve worked with,” he added. “That responsibility carried me to do that because I knew how important it is to other people out there like me, who would need to see that role model.”

'Angel' Cast Reunites - See the Stars of the 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' Spinoff Series After 20 Years!

The cast of Angel reunites for their 20th anniversary on the cover of Entertainment Weekly, our on Friday (June 21).

Here’s what David Boreanaz, Charisma Carpenter, Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, J. August Richards, James Marsters, as well as Buffy creator Joss Whedon and writer David Greenwalt had to say…

Joss Whedon, on the show’s concept: “We started talking in terms of redemption. We realized while Buffy is about the hero’s journey — that ‘becoming the person you are’ that happens in adolescence — Angel is about dealing with the person you’ve been.”

David Boreanaz, on being first called to meet about the spinoff and thinking he was getting fired: “I think we started talking about the Grateful Dead. “Then he’s like, ‘Yeah, we’re thinking about spinning your character off.’ And I’m like ‘alright.’”

Joss Whedon, on the series finale: “I understand why people would want closure, but for me, that would be like adding a cliff note to the end. What I always wanted to say is trying to become worthy of the life that you have, is a life’s work. The fight is for always.”
