Producer Accused By Ray Fisher Revealed That the Actor Was Upset Because They Wanted Him to Say Cyborg’s Catchphrase

Cyborg actor Ray Fisher asked why some fans are taking an issue as to why his character does not say the catchphrase, "Booyah," in Zack Snyder's Justice League. The actor asked fans on Twitter. This question isn't all too innocent if the basis will be producer Jon Berg who revealed that the actor didn't want to say the catchphrase when asked to do so.

On Twitter, Fisher asked fans with a ‘serious reflective question' to fans who are taking issue with Cyborg not saying the word booyah in Snyder's cut. He added that are those fans ‘just as upset' when none of the other characters use their catchphrases.

He ended the question that if the fans are not bothered with the other characters not saying their catchphrases, why are they taking issue if Cyborg doesn't say it.

The actor's fans flocked to the tweet to show support for him not wanting to say the catchphrase. However, his question might be loaded. In July 2020, Fisher accused Joss Whedon of engaging with gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable behavior during the reshoots for Justice League.

The actor added that producers Jon Berg and Geoff Johns enabled Whedon's behavior. Berg responded that Fisher's accusations were ‘categorically untrue'. The producer added that he remembered a time that Fisher was upset because they wanted him to say "Booyaa."

The producer said that it was a famous catchphrase of Cyborg in the animated series. Berg said, "I remember [Fisher] being upset that we wanted him to say ‘Booyaa,' which is a well-known saying of Cyborg in the animated series."

Warner Bros launched an investigation into the allegations but was later followed by a third-party investigation due to Fisher's request. In December 2020, Warner Media announced the investigation was completed and remedial action was done based on the investigation's findings.

Fisher, later on, said that he will not take part in any projects on Warner Bros. if it's overseen by DC Films Walter Hamada, calling him a dangerous enabler. Despite the fiasco, the actor said that he will promote Zack Snyder's Justice League. The actor said, "There's no way you can stop me from doing press for Zack Snyder's Justice League."

Zack Snyder's Justice League will be released on HBO Max on March 18, 2021.
