The star, who was fired from her role as Kate Kane after only one series, claimed that former Warner Bros. Television chairman Peter Roth 'forced' her back to work following surgery from a neck injury and hired a private investigator to dig up dirt on her.
The Australian actress also hit out at showrunner Caroline Dries, as well as Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter of the show’s production company Berlanti Productions, promising to 'come for you so what happened to me never happens to another person again'.

Rose launched into a volley of allegations in October via Instagram, detailing the difficult working conditions to which she claims she was subjected.
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, 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.'
Rose claimed Dries, who she described as having 'no heart', had only came to set four times in a year and accused her of pressuring her to comply with unfair demands.

She also made a number of claims against former Warner Bros. TV chairman Peter Roth, who left the position earlier this year.
'Not sure if you left after getting promoted to the highest position because you just couldn't stop making young women steam your pants, around your crotch while you were still wearing said pants or if you left after putting a private investigator on me who you fired as soon as the report didn't fit your narrative,' Rose wrote.
'Either way, when it comes to you, there's already an army waiting for u.'
Rose shared several snaps of x-rays she said were related to a neck injury she sustained on set which required surgery in 2019.

She also alleged Peter Roth forced her to return to work just 10 days after the surgery and cited this as the reason for her 'stiff' performance.
'To everyone who said I was too stiff on Batwoman, imagine going back to work 10 days after this.
'10 DAYS! (Or the whole crew and cast would be fired and I'd let everyone down because Peter Roth said he would recast and I just lost the studio millions (by getting injured on his set), instead of spending half a day to rewrite me out for a few weeks to heal.'
Rose continued: '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.'

Warner Bros. Television group condemned the claims as 'revisionist history', instead declaring it declined to renew Rose's contract for a second season as they received 'multiple complaints about her workplace behavior'.
In a statement to DailyMail.com, WBTV said: 'Despite the revisionist history that Ruby Rose is now sharing online aimed at the producers, the cast and crew, the network, and the Studio, the truth is that Warner Bros. Television had decided not to exercise its option to engage Ruby for season two of BATWOMAN based on multiple complaints about workplace behavior that were extensively reviewed and handled privately out of respect for all concerned.'
Ruby starred in the show as Kate Kane, who is the cousin of Batman's alter ego Bruce Wayne and later becomes Batwoman.
She was replaced in the second season by actress Javicia Leslie, whose character is named Ryan Wilder.
When the news was announced in July 2020, Ruby congratulated Javicia, 34, on Instagram, writing: 'OMG!! This is amazing!!
'I am so glad Batwoman will be played by an amazing Black woman. I want to congratulate Javicia Leslie on taking over the bat cape.'
Javicia is the first black actress in TV history to play the iconic comic book role.
