Hollywood has been like a warzone ever since the reports of Harvey Weinstein came out awhile back, with people rightfully no longer keeping silent about many of the actors and producers that have participated in inappropriate sexual harassment and behaviors.

Arrowverse EP Andrew Kreisberg was one of those that was accused a few weeks ago and now he has been fired after an internal investigation.

Warner Bros. has issued a statement, which has been provide by TVLine, which states that they have terminated Kreisberg after a "thorough investigation" into the allegations against him.

Kreisberg was currently serving as co-showrunner for both The Flash and Supergirl, so this is definitely a major shakeup for these shows. Just this week, his name was attached to the big crossover event Crisis on Earth X as well.

In this report, it says that Greg Berlanti will now assume additional responsibilities on The Flash to help co-showrunner Todd Helbing, along with on Supergirl to help co-showrunners Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller.

They go on to say that they remain committed to making the work environment as safe as possible for their employees, especially after this incident.

Berlanti and his producing partner Sarah Schecter also put out a statement of their own that said:

"Warner Bros. Television Group recently concluded its investigation into the allegations against Andrew Kreisberg. We encouraged and supported this investigation, we believe and support the individuals who came forward, and we agree with the studio's decision. Nothing is more important to us than the safety and well-being of all our colleagues -- coworkers, crew and staff alike."

There is no doubt that this will have an impact on the Arrowverse, with Kreisberg previously playing such a big role.

He started off as a showrunner on Arrow before moving to The Flash, so his imprint is all over the Arrowverse.

Hopefully they can manage to right the ship without him and it won't cause this enterprise to start to falter.
