Several television and film executives have been accused of sexual misconduct over the past three months, but who knew Ayesha Curry’s career would feel the blow?

The domestic beauty currently hosts ABC cooking reality series The Great American Baking Show. Unfortunately, the family favorite has been cancelled due to judge, Johnny Iuzzini, who has been accused of sexual harassment by four separate women who used to work for the pastry chef.



 

Mic reports the accusers referred to their time employed by Iuzzini from 2009 and 2011 as “rampant with incidents of sexual harassment.”

ABC confirmed their decision to part ways with Iuzzini in a statement to CNN; “In light of allegations that recently came to our attention, ABC has ended its relationship with Johnny Iuzzini and will not be airing the remainder of The Great American Baking Show episodes. ABC takes matters such as those described in the allegations very seriously and has come to the conclusion that they violate our standards of conduct.”

Iuzzini proclaims his innocence, telling CNN, “While I understand ABC felt pressured to make this difficult decision, I am extremely disappointed and saddened that the show will not continue to air as scheduled. I feel terrible for the bakers, fans of the show, the cast and everyone else involved in the production.”

Many have taken to social media to challenge ABC’s decision, believing the network should have simply suspended or fired the accused rather than cancel the show, leaving the rest of staff, including Mrs. Curry, with one less check coming in.
