Chris Hardwick accused of Assault


Nerdist, which was founded by Hardwick, has removed all mentions of Chris Hardwick from its site following Chloe Dykstra's essay on Medium, called “Rose-Colored Glasses: A Confession." In the Essay she never reveals who she is talking about but leaves a number of clues such as her ex being 20 years older than her, Hardwick is 20 years older then Dykstra, and that he was a former Podcaster who became a CEO of his own company, Hardwick ran his own Nerdist Podcast and became CEO of Nerdist Industries. She also lays out what kind of abuse she had sustained at Hardwick's hand including Sexual Assult.

Legendary Digital Network acquired Nerdist in 2012 and Hardwick's contract with them expired in 2017 and they were quick to distance Nerdist from the former owner revealing that he had not been part of the company since 2015. Nerdist itself also released a statement denouncing Hardwick's behavior and shared several places where victims can go to get help.

As of writing this, AMC has yet to make any statement about Hardwick or his future with the network as host of Talking with Chris Hardwick and Talking Dead. Season 2 of Talking with Chris Hardwick is set to premiere June 17th.

Hardwick is currently married to Actress and Model Lydia Hearst, The great-granddaughter William Randolph Hearst and daughter of Patty Hearst and the late Bernard Shaw.

Re: Chris Hardwick accused of Assault


I really hope they're not going to go overboard and pull Talking Dead or pull him from the hosting job. It's getting like a witch hunt with these sexual harassment accusations and it seems like the ''victim" is always instantly believed. Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty? While I realize some of these charges are true, they may not all be. Chris Hardwick has utterly denied every charge so how can we know for sure? I had a bad feeling when the whole #metoo movement [sign in to see URL], victims need a voice but that's a really fine line to be walking and I think we're quickly seeing things spin out of control.

Following an investigation by AMC, Chris Hardwick will be returning to host The Talking Dead.

Chloe Dykstra did not take part in the investigation and has never publicly stated the unnamed ex was, in fact, Hardwick
