Michelle Trachtenberg Said That Joss Whedon Wasn't Allowed To Be Alone In A Room With Her On "Buffy"

"Not. Appropriate."

Earlier this week, actor Charisma Carpenter posted a statement detailing alleged abuse and mistreatment from Joss Whedon on the sets of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel.

Buffy star Sarah Michelle Gellar posted her own statement of support after Carpenter's statement, which costar Michelle Trachtenberg reposted on her Instagram with her own statement.

Now Trachtenberg has updated her original statement to share her own experience with Whedon on the set of Buffy — specifically: "There was a rule. Saying. He's not allowed in a room alone with Michelle again."

"This must. Be known. As a teenager," she said in the statement. "With his not appropriate behavior....very. Not. Appropriate. So now. People know. What Joss. Did."

Trachtenberg also noted that her latest update to her comment was "The last. Comment I will make on this."

In addition to Trachtenberg's updated comment, Eliza Dushku — who starred in Buffy and Angel, as well as in Whedon's Dollhouse — posted a statement showing support for Carpenter: "CC ... I'm so sorry you have held this for so long. ... I hadn't known it and I won't forget it."

Whedon has yet to comment.
