With Hollywood still recovering from what seemed to be an endless list of #metoo scandals, it seems they aren’t taking any more chances. Popular convention moderator and host of AMC’s Talking Dead, Chris Hardwick has been removed from all moderation duties at San Diego Comic-con.
The decision was made after Hardwick’s ex-girlfriend, Chloe Dykstra accused Hardwick of sexual assault and sexual harassment. In what may become a long, legal battle, companies are quickly distancing themselves from Hardwick. Along with San Diego Comicon, AMC has also suspended the Talking Dead and his name has been removed from anything related to the Nerdist website, which he co-founded.
