A fan recently asked for a live discussion between Fisher and Boyega about their own Hollywood experiences and the struggles they have faced. The Cyborg actor seemingly thinks this is a good idea. However, Fisher says explaining accountability is greater than that of entertainment and that he can't say anything about his experience yet until the investigation at Warner Bros. has been concluded. You can check out his response below.

Fisher has been calling attention to issues in the entertainment industry, most recently, he called out former Joss Whedon for his unprofessional treatment and behavior of the cast and crew on set, with DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns allegedly enabling him.
