ABC Pulls ‘Great American Baking Show’ After Four Women Accuse Chef Johnny Iuzzini of Sexual Harassment


ABC has confirmed it will pull The Great American Baking Show from its upcoming schedule as a response to recent sexual harassment allegations against one of the show’s judges, Johnny Iuzzini.

An award-winning pastry chef, Iuzinni, 43, was initially accused of sexual and verbal harassment by four women while working at the New York restaurant Jean-Georges.

“In light of allegations that recently came to our attention, ABC has ended its relationship with Johnny Iuzzini and will not be airing the remainder of The Great American Baking Show episodes,” an ABC spokesperson said on Wednesday.

“ABC takes matters such as those described in the allegations very seriously and has come to the conclusion that they violate our standards of conduct,” the spokesperson said. “This season’s winner will be announced at a later date.”
