Eddie Berganza Tells DC That Buzzfeed Is Working On Article About Him

Tick, tock, Eddie.

Most people know Buzzfeed for their quizzes and puff pieces, but lately they've been ramping up their traditional journalism aspect, covering Trump's business deals and Puerto Ricans without power. The site is now working on an article about DC's Eddie Berganza, someone who we have been covering for far too long.

Despite the complaints of harassment against him, Berganza was only demoted from Executive Editor to Group Editor and reportedly banned from attending comic conventions for DC. Alex De Campi wrote a piece about the Superman office, of which Berganza was in charge, didn't have any women.

DC eventually a statement regarding their stance on harassment.

DC Entertainment strives to foster a culture of inclusion, fairness and respect. While we cannot comment on specific personnel matters, DC takes allegations of discrimination and harassment very seriously, promptly investigates reports of misconduct and disciplines those who violate our standards and policies.

As part of our ongoing effort to provide an equitable working environment, we are reviewing our policies, expanding employee training on the topic and working with internal and external resources to ensure that these policies and procedures are respected and reinforced across the company.

After DC's move to Burbank, there hasn't been any reported ill behavior from Berganza. Women have also started to work in the Superman office. Editor Rachel Tay has worked alongside Berganza editing DC's Metal series.

With a site the size of Buzzfeed prepping an article about him, it might be hard for Warner Bros. to sweep his actions under the rug.
