Veteran DC Comics editor Eddie Berganza has been suspended following multiple allegations of sexual assault by former female employees, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
“DC Entertainment has immediately suspended Mr. Berganza and has removed him from performing his duties as Group Editor at DC Comics,” a statement from DC read.
Three women, two on the record and one unnamed, shared allegations in a BuzzFeed story published Friday in which they described instances of Berganza forcibly kissing or groping them. Rumors of misconduct had long followed Berganza, who has been with the company since the 1990s.
“There will be a prompt and yet careful review into next steps as it relates to the allegations against him, and the concerns our talent, employees and fans have shared. DC continues to be extremely committed to creating a safe and secure working environment for our employees and everyone involved in the creation of our comic books,” said the company.
