Read between the lines. If they found something, WB would've gone out of their way to make absolutely clear how Whedon's behaviour was 100% against their values, how they don't condone such behaviour, how it has no place at WB etc. Fisher is going on about it and yet they've said nothing. Why is that? Because they found nothing that constitutes racism. Gal Gadot had issues with Whedon and that was dealt with at the time, not 3 years later. Is it possible that Whedon's behaviour was unprofessional? Sure, and he does have history of that. However, just because the person on the receiving end was black doesn't make it racism, and that is the crux of the issue. Fisher is accusing Whedon of racism.I don't recall them saying they found nothing. Saying the investigation was over and action was taken is not the same as saying they found nothing.
There is a big difference between someone being a jerk and someone being a racist.
