no title

Chloe Dykstra's revelations about relationship abuse went viral yesterday — with many readers assuming, based on the references in Dykstra's initial post, that she was writing about ex Chris Hardwick even without mentioning him by name.

And late last night, Hardwick finally publicly responded to the serious accusations, seemingly confirming it was him who was being accused by Dykstra, while also simultaneously denying ever doing the things she alleged.

The cancellation of Chris Hardwick has commenced.

The TV host and nerd culture icon has been wiped clean from the Nerdist website, the entertainment company he co-founded in 2012, after many people began speculating he was the subject of his ex-girlfriend's emotional and sexual abuse accusations.

As we reported, actress Chloe Dykstra penned an emotional essay to Medium on Thursday detailing the abuse she suffered while dating a man nearly 20 years older than her. She didn't name the ex, but described him as someone who went from "podcaster to a powerhouse CEO of his own company."

Chloe Dykstra Accuses Unnamed Ex-Boyfriend Of Emotional Abuse, Sexual Assault, & Career Blacklisting — And People Think She's Talking About Chris Hardwick

Filed under: Icky Icky PooSad SadYouTubeTwitterComic-ConControversy

no title

Actress and model Chloe Dykstra published an emotional essay on Medium Thursday accusing an unidentified ex-boyfriend of "long-term abuse," sexual assault, and career blacklisting.

Based on the relationship timeline and key details she revealed, Twitter detectives think it's safe to say the unnamed ex is TV host and Comic-Con icon Chris Hardwick, whom Dykstra dated from late 2011 to July 2014.

In her essay titled Rose-Colored Glasses: A Confession, Dykstra said she met a man "almost 20 years my senior" at a convention when she was in her early 20s and they began dating.

Immediately, she claimed, he started exhibiting "controlling behavior" towards her and forced her to follow a strict set of rules — including staying in their hotel room while he attended parties at San Diego Comic Con, removing all pictures of male friends from her house, and abiding by a curfew.

The cosplayer claimed she was "quickly pressured to take an on-camera job at his company I didn't want." Dykstra co-hosted the cosplay show Just Cos on the YouTube channel for Hardwick's company Nerdist. But she claimed other pressures took a much larger toll on her mental and physical health.

She accused the "sober" (another clue, as The Talking Dead host is sober) ex of frequently pressuring her into sex against her will, claiming that he found it funny when she laid there "in tears" and even had a nickname for the act. She wrote:
