When headlines swirled just a month ago indicating 10 women had come forward to accuse ‘Extra’ host A.J. Calloway of sexual misconduct (as we reported here), the show’s parent company – Warner Bros. – stated they ‘no plans’ on investigating. Since then, in light of pressure from external sources and reportedly newfound evidence, they’ve changed their tune.
The result? Calloway has been suspended. Details inside:
“Upon becoming aware of allegations of sexual misconduct against AJ Calloway, we began an internal review to determine whether there had been any misconduct by Mr. Calloway on ‘Extra’ and whether any employee of the show had been the victim of any such misconduct,” producer Warner Bros. Television said in a statement, referring to earlier allegations against Calloway. “To date, we have found nothing to suggest that Mr. Calloway has ever engaged in workplace misconduct.”
Warner Bros. added, “In light of additional allegations brought to our attention, we are expanding our ongoing inquiries, and Mr. Calloway has been suspended pending further review. We take such allegations very seriously and are committed to doing everything we can to ensure a safe and inclusive workplace for all of our employees.”
