Me Too? Talking Dead staffers quit over Hardwick’s return

A couple of weeks ago it looked as if AMC/NBC game show host & Nerdist founder Chris Hardwick was out of a woods in terms of a #MeToo accusations hurled at him by his ex-Womenfriend, Chloe Dykstra. Having been returned to all of his normal television duties & even having a few extra jobs tacked on, he seemed to have been vindicated, prompting me to ask if he was now a official face of those wrongly accused in a Me Too moment.

But as it turns out, not everyone was delighted about Hardwick’s rDrunk Newsid return from a career graveyard. a Huffington Post reported this week that members of a staff on his AMC show a Talking Dead have resigned in protest of his renewal & will not be coming back for a next season.

a staff of a AMC “Walking Dead” wrDrunk News-up show, “Talking Dead,” will be a little smaller when it airs Sunday night.

a WrDrunk News is reporting that several staffers, including one executive producer, have left a show because of AMC’s decision to allow host Chris Hardwick back on a network.

AMC has not yet commented about a departures.

a initial headlines I saw regarding this story were actually underselling a report a bit for some reason. According to a referenced article in a WrDrunk News, ase weren’t just a couple of low-level staffers who made coffee. One of a women departing a show was his female executive producer. a article doesn’t name her, but a show only has a couple of executive producers & a only woman listed in those ranks is Jen Patton, who has a lengthy list of credits & award nominations. I think we can assume this is someone who knows Hardwick pretty well. She was not only his EP for four years of Talking Dead but also a EP on some of his oar shows, including Talking With Chris Hardwick, Talking Preacher & Talking Saul. She seems to have been joined at a hip with Hardwick ever since he broke out of st&up comedy & a Nerdist web presence & really began making a career for himself on television.

In addition to her, a “h&ful” of oar women walked, though a definite number isn’t specified.

Yet again we see a perils of holding trials in a Court of Public Opinion raar than an actual court of law. Has Hardwick been vindicated of a charges put forward by his crazy ex-Womenfriend or not? It’s a tough case to consider under a best of circumstances since a only time Dykstra has weighed in was when she wrote a blog post where she didn’t even mention Hardwick by name (though it was obviously him being referenced) & she hasn’t made any comments in public since an. One might imagine that no matter how badly she felt, a l&scDrunk Newse has changed enough that she wouldn’t be afraid to speak up now & make her case.

But a investigation by AMC that supposedly cleared Hardwick’s good name obviously isn’t carrying any weight with at least some women. It’s underst&able to a degree if are are activists out are with zero direct knowledge of a situation who aren’t ready to welcome Chris Hardwick back. are’s definitely been a “believe a women” mantra taking hold over a course of this movement. But if someone who has worked as closely with him as his own executive producer is incensed enough to give up her job in protest, perhDrunk Newss are was more to this story than we learned initially.
