A day after Chloe Dykstra accused Chris Hardwick of emotional, mental, and physical abuse over the course of their three-year dating relationship, AMC has pulled the plug on the second season of Talking With Chris Hardwick, which was set to debut tomorrow night, at least while they “assess the situation.” AMC also says that Hardwick decided on his own to withdraw from planned hosting duties at San Diego Comic-Con. Hardwick was scheduled to host panels for The Walking Dead and Doctor Who. This comes a day after Nerdist also scrubbed Hardwick from their site, which Hardwick founded. NBC, meanwhile, is also assessing the situation before they make a decision on The Wall, the game show hosted by Hardwick which does not begin production again until the fall.

Meanwhile, Hardwick’s efforts to diffuse the situation by releasing a statement gaslighting Chloe Dykstra did not help matters. In fact, Twitter pounced on one line in particular: “As a husband, a son, and future father, I do not condone any kind of mistreatment of women.” To our knowledge, Hardwick’s wife, Lydia Hearst, is not pregnant, but even if she was, WHAT KIND OF FUCKERY IS THIS?

Twitter had words.
