Talking with Chris Hardwick and Comic-Con Panel Moderation Pulled by AMC Amidst Sexual Assault Allegations

Share on Reddit

Thanks to Ron for the heads up.

Per TVGuide, AMC has halted Talking with Chris Hardwick which Chris Hardwick hosts in light of the allegations of sexual and emotional abuse he's been accused of by ex-girlfriend Chloe Dykstra. In addition to that, he will not be moderating the Doctor Who and The Walking Dead panels for San Diego's upcoming Comic-Con. If you're interested in reading Chloe's account, of which she doesn't name Chris but leaves hints towards it being him, the account of that is here on Medium.

"We have had a positive working relationship with Chris Hardwick for many years. We take the troubling allegations that surfaced yesterday very seriously," the network said in a statement Saturday. "While we assess the situation, Talking with Chris Hardwick will not air on AMC, and Chris has decided to step aside from moderating planned AMC and BBC America panels at Comic-Con International in San Diego next month."


Per Deadline, Chris Hardwick has denied these claims.

“These are very serious allegations and not to be taken lightly which is why I’ve taken the day to consider how to respond,” said Hardwick in a statement Friday night. “I was heartbroken to read Chloe’s post. Our three year relationship was not perfect—we were ultimately not a good match and argued—even shouted at each other—but I loved her, and did my best to uplift and support her as a partner and companion in any way and at no time did I sexually assault her.”

“When we were living together, I found out that Chloe had cheated on me, and I ended the relationship,” Hardwick asserts. “For several weeks after we broke up, she asked to get back together with me and even told me she wanted to have kids with me, ‘build a life’ with me and told me that I was ‘the one,’ but I did not want to be with someone who was unfaithful,” he added in the carefully crafted response. “I’m devastated to read that she is now accusing me of conduct that did not occur. l was blindsided by her post and always wanted the best for her. As a husband, a son, and future father, I do not condone any kind of mistreatment of women.”
