The ancient pharaohs were well known, once the bloodletting was over and their now-royal behind was newly ensconced on the throne, for scrubbing the historical record of their predecessor.
This is the modern age, and it seems, our new kings are no different:
“Legendary Entertainment, which owns Nerdist Industries where Hardwick launched his career as a comic and podcaster, just released a statement.
“Chris Hardwick had no operational involvement with Nerdist for the two years preceding the expiration of his contract in December 2017,” it reads. “He no longer has any affiliation with Legendary Digital Networks. The company has removed all reference to Mr. Hardwick even as the original Founder of Nerdist pending further investigation.””
It’s another tawdry story in the history of the #MeToo movement.
“Dykstra said she left Hardwick after three years, and that after the breakup he made calls to companies “to get me fired by threatening to never work with them,” and that he and a female colleague “steamrolled my career.”
Deadline has not independently confirmed Dykstra’s accusations.”
What a quaint idea! Fancy expecting proof! Surely an accusation is enough, in these enlightened times?
