Extra host A.J. Calloway suspended amid sexual misconduct investigation
The Hollywood Reporter, which first reported an allegation of sexual misconduct against Calloway last June, reports that Warner Bros. TV suspended Calloway as it was preparing a new story with additional claims against the Extra host. Last month, The Daily Beast reported that two more women have come forward accusing Calloway of sexual misconduct. "Upon becoming aware of allegations of sexual misconduct against AJ Calloway, we began an internal review to determine whether there had been any misconduct by Mr. Calloway on Extra and whether any employee of the show had been the victim of any such misconduct," Warner Bros. TV said in a statement. "To date, we have found nothing to suggest that Mr. Calloway has ever engaged in workplace misconduct." In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Calloway's attorney said: "Mr. Calloway maintains that these unsubstantiated allegations are patently false. He vehemently denies that he ever assaulted anyone and looks forward to clearing his name."
