Production on MTV’s “CATFISH” Has Resumed Following Sexual Misconduct Claims
MTV Has decides to resume production on the show “Catfish,” after sexual misconduct allegations against Nev Schulman were found ‘not credible.’
“Although we never received a formal complaint, MTV and Critical Content immediately engaged an independent third party investigator,” said MTV in a statement given to Deadline. “The independent investigator found the allegations made in the YouTube videos to be not credible and without merit.”
The statement continues, “Given the results of the investigation, “Catfish” will resume filming. We take these matters very seriously and are committed to providing a safe working environment.”
Schulman took to social media to thank fans for their support. “Appreciate the support from you and so many others,” he tweeted. “Excited to get back to work!”
Schulman was accused back in May after Ayissha Morgan, who appeared on the show three years ago, posted a video claiming that Schulman harassed her during production. “Catfish” follows Nev and Max as they help fans uncover whether or not the people they’ve been talking to online are real or a Catfish.
