The technology and media services provider Netflix canceled the upcoming prank show featuring Chris D’Elia and Bryan Callen because of the sexual harassment allegations against D’Elia.
In June, allegations against D’Elia started to surface, and numerous women took to social media to reveal that they had been treated inappropriately by the comedian. The women claimed that he had sexually harassed them, and some of them said they had been as young as 16 at the time.
However, the ‘Whitney’ actor denied all the allegations and said he had not pursued any underage women.
According to the news released by TMZ, he said:
“I know I have said and done things that might have offended people during my career, but all of my relationships have been both legal and consensual and I have never met or exchanged any inappropriate photos with the people who have tweeted about me.”
Then, the comedian admitted:
“That being said, I really am truly sorry. I was a dumb guy who absolutely let myself get caught up in my lifestyle. That’s my fault. I own it. I’ve been reflecting on this for some time now and I promise I will continue to do better.”
Regarding the issue, ‘The Fighter and the Kid’ co-host Bryan Callen made the following statement:
“I always knew Chris as a ladies’ man; I have never seen or heard of him doing anything illegal. Right now I have to believe that, because he’s still a friend… I just think it’s an impossible situation, and I’m just at a loss. I’m praying that what I’m hearing isn’t true.”
In addition to the cancellation made by Netflix, streaming platforms, Comedy Central, Hulu, and Amazon Prime also removed a ‘Workaholics’ episode guest-starring D’Elia as a child molester.
