‘When it comes to you, there’s already an army waiting for u.’ 

Rose shared videos of her X-rays from the hospital after her neck injury on set as she underwent neck surgery in 2019.

It was reported back in May 2020 that she had quit her role on the superhero series, however, she now claims to have been fired.

Rose explained: ‘To my dear, dear fans still asking if I will return to that awful show, I wouldn’t return for any amount of money nor if a gun were to my head … NOR DID I QUIT. I DID NOT QUIT, they ruined Kate Kane and they destroyed Batwoman, not me. 

‘I followed orders, and if I wanted to stay I was going to have to sign my rights away. Any threats, any bullying tactics or blackmail would not make me stand down.’

She began the series of posts by tagging showrunner Caroline Dries and Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter of the show’s production company Berlanti Productions and writing: ‘Enough is enough.

‘I’m going to tell the whole world what really happened to me on that set. I will come for you so what happened to me never happens to another person again. And so I can finally take back my life and the truth. Shame on you.’

They also claimed showrunner Dries only came to set four times in a year which she noted is ‘UNHEARD OF.’

However during one of those visits, Rose said Dries encouraged her to comply with the private investigator that had been hired by Roth.
