Nev Schulman, the host of MTV’s “Catfish” is being accused of sexual harassment by a woman who once appeared on the show. In order to perform a complete investigation, the network has suspended production of the show.
Its unclear as to what the details are involving the incident, but apparently the woman was on the show a few years ago and recently posted a video claiming that a unidentified man made inappropriate sexual comments towards her.
Schulman is denying any wrongdoing. In a statement he said:
The behavior described in this video did not happen and I’m fortunate that there are a number of former colleagues who were present during this time period who are willing to speak up with the truth. I have always been transparent about my life and would always take responsibility for my actions — but these claims are false.
A MTV spokesperson said in a statement,
We take these allegations very seriously. We’re working with Critical Content, our third party production company, to conduct a thorough investigation and we’ve put a pause on shooting until the investigation is completed.
Catfish: The TV Show is reality-based documentary television series airing on MTV about the truths and lies of online dating. The series is based on the 2010 film Catfish and is co-hosted by Nev Schulman and Max Joseph. It premiered on November 12, 2012.
