High-profile DC Comics creator Rafael Albuquerque has issued a heartfelt statement on Twitter in the wake of Buzzfeed's report on the sexual harassment allegations against longtime DC Comics editor Eddie Berganza. Albuquerque wrote:
Though allegations against Berganza have been reported before by Bleeding Cool and others, the Buzzfeed report comes amidst a sweeping tidal wave of sexual harassment and assault allegations against powerful men across the entertainment industry and politics — one that has remarkably captured the attention of the world. Additionally, Buzzfeed's report contains previously unreported allegations about Berganza, and comes from the highest-profile outlet yet to report on them. Echoes of Buzzfeed's report have also followed on sites like Vulture and The Hollywood Reporter., as well as comics sites like CBR, ComicBook.com, and Graphic Policy.
