Minutes after Sarah Michelle Gellar responded to Charisma Carpenter’s claims of abuse by the Avengers director by saying that she stands “with all survivors of abuse and am proud of them for speaking out,” Buffy co-star Michelle Trachtenberg has made startling accusations against Whedon.
“Thank you @sarahmgellar for saying this,” said the actress who played Gellar’s on-screen little sister in the 1997-2003 SoCal supernatural series. “I am brave enough now as a 35 year old woman….To repost this. Because. This must. Be known. As a teenager. With his not appropriate behavior….very. Not. Appropriate.”

Trachtenberg added to the online post: “What he did was very bad. But we win. By surviving!”
Reps for Whedon had no comment when contacted by Deadline for comment on the various claims.
