MTV suspends 'Catfish' amid sexual misconduct allegations against host Nev Schulman

Uh oh! It looks like the show Catfish will be on hiatus amid sexual misconduct allegations against host and executive producer of the show, Nev Schulman. 

According to the Los Angeles Times:
On Saturday, Ayissha Morgan published a video to her YouTube page titled “The TRUTH about the show Part 1,” which detailed purported misconduct by “the main guy on the show,” whom Morgan called “Jack.”
Morgan appeared on Season 4 of “Catfish” in 2015, and in the video alleged that “Jack” repeatedly questioned her about her sexuality and bragged about the size of his penis.
“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,” Schulman said in a statement given to The Times.
“I have always been transparent about my life and would always take responsibility for my actions — but these claims are false,” the host continued.

Part 2 of the video was posted Monday and included additional sexual misconduct allegations against an unnamed female production assistant.

“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,” a spokesperson for MTV said in a statement Thursday.
