CNN is pulling at least a few episodes of Parts Unknown off the air.
The late Anthony Bourdain‘s show will largely remain unaffected, but several episodes will be pulled out from public view — and they all have one thing in common: Asia Argento.

The network confirmed this week that they have removed three episodes of Parts Unknown from its streaming service CNN Go directly as a result of the allegations against Argento — that she allegedly sexually assaulted former child actor Jimmy Bennett.
A rep for CNN told the media (below):

“In light of the recent news reports about Asia Argento, CNN will discontinue airing past episodes of Parts Unknown that included her, until further notice.”

Those episodes include: a season eight episode called Rome, a season ten episode called Southern Italy: The Heel of the Boot, and a season 11 episode called Hong Kong.
That includes two episodes in which Asia appeared, and one that she directed.
No word on if there are others out there, or if/when these may return to rotation, but for now, everything is on hold as Argento winds her way through plenty of controversy.
