ABC has taken The Great American Baking Show off the air over sexual misconduct allegations against judge Johnny Iuzzini.

Iuzzini was first hit with the allegations on November 29, when Mic published the accounts of four women who had worked under Iuzzini at Jean Georges in New York City.

The women described being sexually harassed and even verbally abused by the inappropriate and temperamental executive pastry chef.

Iuzzini partially apologized for some of the behavior recounted in the story, while claiming innocence when it came to some of the other accusations.

In the end, ABC decided to go forward with airing the third season of The Great American Baking Show, which debuted last week. Iuzzini judges the show alongside Paul Hollywood, who also judges the original British show.

But ABC pulled the show off the air on Wednesday, a day after Mic published a second report, citing four more people who had either been personally harassed by Iuzzini or witnessed his misbehavior. The second episode was set to air on Thursday.

In a statement to Variety, the network said that they decided to take the show off the air because of Iuzzini’s reported actions.
