"Warner Bros and DC Entertainment have terminated the employment of DC Comics Group Editor Eddie Berganza", DC Entertainment said in a statement.

Berganza started work for DC in 1992 and worked on numerous high-profile comics, including the recent Dark Nights: Metal.

Allegations against Berganza have persisted for more than a decade, but they never resulted in any permanent disciplinary action until 2012, when Berganza was demoted from executive editor down to group editor. After the article initially broke on Friday, DC suspended Berganza on Saturday, before firing him outright on Monday. Finally, DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson issued a statement indicating that Mr. Berganza has been let go.

In fact, Buzzfeed's report wasn't the first time Berganza had been publicly accused of sexual misconduct. When Berganza was promoted to Executive Editor, despite multiple complaints to DC's human resources department, as the article states, and Marsham expressing her discomfort to DC Comics Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras, she moved away from working in editorial completely, rather than continue working under Berganza any longer.

Instances of abuse recounted in the article included Berganza forcibly kissing female co-workers, groping others, and making offensive jokes directed at women.

After the earlier suspension of Berganza, the comics website the Mary Sue alleged that DC's response was "undeniably too little, too late".

Russia, which has a long-term military garrison in Syria, has said it wants foreign forces to quit the country eventually.

Eddie Berganza, a 25-year veteran at DC Comics, was a group editor who oversaw production of major titles, including Superman, Supergirl, and Wonder Woman. Asselin said that development was "massively demoralising" at the time.

The women in BuzzFeed's report all emphasize the competitive nature of the comics industry, where legions of fans dream of working at Marvel and DC, as contributing to the pressure they felt to stay silent. Every woman who complained to the company regarding this matter has since left DC. Per BuzzFeed News, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment said that they are "committed to eradicating harassment".
