Television Group Chairman Peter Roth threatened to replace her since she "just lost the studio millions (by getting injured on his set)."

As well as her injuries Rose claimed that one of the crew members suffered third-degree burns and the production assistant had been diagnosed as "left quadriplegic." Rose included in her list of accusations she claimed that the "Batwoman" showrunner refused to end filming until local authorities ordered shut the production.

Warner Bros. Television Group denied the allegations in a statement on Wednesday that said Rose was fired for multiple complaints about her conduct.

"Despite the revisionist history that Ruby Rose is now sharing online aimed at the producers, the cast and crew, the network, and the Studio, the truth is that Warner Bros. Television had decided not to exercise its option to engage Ruby for season two of BATWOMAN based on multiple complaints about workplace behavior that were extensively reviewed and handled privately out of respect for all concerned," the company explained.

Roth the man who announced his retirement last year was not available immediately to provide a response.

Rose said to Entertainment Weekly in August 2020 that she took "tough" to lead a superhero show, but other factors led to her leaving that included her returning to the show just 10 days after having operation.

"You know, you have time in quarantine and sort of isolation to just think about a lot of different things and what you want to achieve in life and what you want to do," Rose said to EW in the past. "I think that for me as well as (the producers and her) this was a wonderful chance to talk regarding a wide range of issues. I'm so proud of them and they've shown such respect towards me."

A representative of Rose did not reply to an inquiry for comments regarding Warner Bros. Television Group's claims. The actress' Instagram posts did mention getting "slammed" in the media and claimed that she had never spoke up, and that she had to be delayed once due to being in a hospital.
