They described multiple instances of Kreisberg inappropriately touching and kissing women and a "constant stream of sexualized comments about women's appearances, their clothes, and their perceived desirability", per the Variety story that broke the news of Kreisberg's suspension.
Just yesterday, it seemed as if the focus of what has become a national reckoning on the subject of sexual harassment had shifted from the entertainment industry to the political sphere, but after the Today show's Matt Lauer and former Prairie Home Companion host Garrison Keillor, the CW's Andrew Kreisberg became the third man in a day to lose his job amid allegations of "improper behavior" or worse.

He denied the allegations, but was swiftly suspended by Warner Bros. and an investigation into his actions was launched. "Television Group has terminated Andrew Kreisberg's employment, effective immediately", according to a statement shared with Postmedia by Warner Bros.
One female employee reported that the producer told a group of employees, in reference to a work trip involving her and Kreisberg, that,"What happens in Vancouver, stays in Vancouver".
Greg Berlanti of Berlanti Productions, which oversees the CW and DC universe shows, will take on some of Kreisberg's duties on The Flash and Supergirl, working closely with current show runners and producers. Kreisberg is said to have created a "toxic" work environment with many insiders fearing retaliation if they filed a complaint against him.
Some fans online commented on the irony of Kreisberg helping to steer the adventures of Supergirl, the only exclusively female-led superhero show on TV at the moment, though the complainants against him were both male and female. Here's hoping that the environment of these shows improves now because of it.
