Mario Batali Fired From ABC's 'The Chew' Amid Sexual Misconduct Claims

Mario Batali Fired From ABC's 'The Chew' Amid Sexual Misconduct Claims

"That behavior was wrong and there are no excuses", Mario said in a statement earlier in the week.

ABC has parted ways with celebrity chef Mario Batali, who will no longer be part of the network's daytime show "The Chew" following. "I take full responsibility", the statement reads.

Batali continues, "Sharing the joys of Italian food, tradition and hospitality with all of you, each week, is an honor and privilege".

Batali has been off the show since Monday after allegations were published on the website Eater New York.

At the end of the letter, he included, "p.s.in case you're searching for a holiday-inspired breakfast, these Pizza Dough Cinnamon Rolls are a fan favorite".

In an apparent reference to actor Kevin Spacey's response to sexual misconduct with underage boys, Twitter user @BSUBOMB wrote, "Only thing worse than 'I sexually assaulted people, but hey!" Another former employee claims Batali would repeatedly grab her from behind and held her tightly against his body, while another alleged that he groped her and that, in a separate incident, he made her straddle him.

But as comic Whitney Cummings tweeted today, "If you make the cinnamon rolls Mario Batali included in his "apology", I am interested in making a documentary about you".

Iuzzini, 43, said he was dismayed by the decision, adding: "I stand by my apology for some unprofessional behaviour 8-10 years ago, but the sexual harassment allegations and many other reports against me were sensationalised and simply not true". The successes I have enjoyed are owned by everyone on my team.
