Nev Schulman has broken silence after he was accused of sexual misconduct.
According to E! News, allegations are believed to be the claims made by Ayissha Morgan, who reportedly appeared on the fourth season of Catfish in 2015. Morgan posted a YouTube video about the show on May 12, in which she accuses the “main person” on the show of sexual harassment, and she refers to him as “Jack.”
She went further to say that during the filming of her episode, ‘Jack’ repeatedly questioned her sexuality, even after she told him that she identifies as a lesbian.
Jack allegedly told him that he has “a big dick, I would tear your ass up.”
Reacting to the allegation, Nev Schulman told E! News, “The behavior described in this video did not happen and I’m fortunate that there are a number of former colleagues who were present during this time period who are willing to speak up with the truth. I have always been transparent about my life and would always take responsibility for my actions — but these claims are false.”
As a result of the accusation, MTV has suspended production on reality show Catfish, and in the statement shared with E! News on Thursday, a MTV spokesperson said, “We take these allegations very seriously. We’re working with Critical Content, our third party production company, to conduct a thorough investigation and we’ve put a pause on shooting until the investigation is completed.”
