Chris Hardwick Gets Emotional During His Talking Dead Return As Several Staffers Quit In Protest!

Filed under: TV NewsControversy

no title

Chris Hardwick was very emotional after AMC welcomed him back to host the Talking Dead months following his ex-girlfriend's allegations of relationship abuse and several staffers, including a co-executive producer, quitting the program in protest.

The Nerdist founder was on the verge of tears at the top of a pre-taped episode of the show on Sunday as he thanked fans for their support and noted how appreciative he was to be back at his post.

But he made no direct reference to the unsettling June allegations made by his ex Chloe Dykstra, who accused a former boyfriend of sexually and emotionally abusing her during a three-year relationship.

Hardwick also failed to mention the exit of co-exec producer Jen Patton and other staffers from Talking Dead in protest over his reinstatement. An insider told Deadline that Patton and the others " felt they couldn't stay after Chloe was not part of the investigation."

Ivy Kagan Bierman of law firm Loeb & Loeb investigated Dykstra's claims and gave Hardwick a "back to work" pass late last month. Dykstra referenced the probe in a tweet last week, noting that she "100%" stands by her essay:

Immigrant Children Say They Were Beaten & Abused At Virginia Juvenile Detention Center

no title

A new court filing says immigrant minors claim to have been abused while being detained at a juvenile center in Virginia.

The extremely disturbing report alleges children as young as 14 were handcuffed, beaten, and locked up for long periods in solitary confinement in concrete jail cells, left nude, and shivering.

According to a half-dozen sworn statements from Latino teens jailed at the Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Center near Staunton, Virginia, guards would strip them of their clothes and strap them to chairs with bags placed over their heads. Some say they have never been allowed outdoors.

Chloe Dykstra Thanks Supporters After Chris Hardwick Denies Sexual Abuse Allegations

Filed under: TwitterTherapyBreakupsControversy

no title

Now that her voice has been heard, Chloe Dykstra is ready to move on.

The actress and cosplayer took to Twitter Wednesday to thank fans for the support she received for the Medium essay she wrote accusing an unnamed boyfriend of sexual and emotional abuse.

Dykstra said the outpouring of love has done more for her healing process than the years of therapy she's undergone, especially all the people coming forward with stories "validating" her own.

The 29-year-old added that her heart goes out to all those "caught in the fallout" of her allegations — a possible reference to ex-boyfriend Chris Hardwick, whose career has taken a nose dive since he was believed to be the abusive ex in Dykstra's essay.

With the scales balanced, Dykstra said she's ready and excited to move forward with her life. Read her full letter (below).

Chris Hardwick's Team Says These Dramatic Breakup Texts Discredit Chloe Dykstra's Abuse Allegations

Filed under: Love LineBreakupsControversy

no title

Chris Hardwick can be a victim of emotional abuse, too.

And he sure made himself seem like it in the lengthy breakup text he sent to his then-girlfriend (now relationship abuse accuser) Chloe Dykstra in 2014. The message reveals how he was heartbroken after she cheated on him with a man named Sam, and how she tried to talk to him afterward to no avail.

In the text messages obtained by TMZ, The Talking Dead host detailed (mansplained?) all that was wrong with their relationship, including his tendencies to be a "pain in the ass" who gets "insecure and frustrated" easily.

Most of the blame, however, was put on Dysktra.

Hardwick claimed the Just Cos host led him to believe she wanted to get back together after they went on a break, but never stopped seeing the man he had to "work with" — which was, according Hardwick, "the worst thing anyone has ever done to me."

The dramatic message ended with Hardwick saying this would be the last time he contacted Dykstra, to which she responded with several texts begging to tell her side of the story. When Hardwick didn't reply back, she simply told him:

VOTE: Reporter Says Melania Trump Might Be Hiding Signs Of Spousal Abuse — Is That Going Too Far??

no title

This may be a bit too far…

Melania Trump has been missing from the public eye for almost a month, leading many to come up with wild conspiracy theories about where she is or why she's been keeping such a low profile.

Over the weekend, Rolling Stone senior writer Jamil Smith suggested that the reason is to possibly conceal signs of domestic violence at the hands of Donald Trump. Considering the allegations in the past against POTUS, it's hard for people to say without pause that this is nothing more than a completely outrageous suggestion.
