Chris Hardwick got emotional upon return to ‘Talking Dead’
Comedian and host Chris Hardwick was suspended from hosting AMC’s “The Walking Dead” after allegations of emotional and sexual abuse surfaced in an essay written by his ex-girlfriend Chloe Dykstra. The network conducted an investigation and reinstated Hardwick. Hardwick got emotional on Sunday’s episode of “Taking Dead,” which is a show about the zombie show "Walking Dead." “I want to say that I am so appreciative to be standing here right now and I want to thank you, the ‘Walking Dead’ community, for all your support these last couple months.” After the investigation, Hardwick’s name was also reinstated to the Nerdist website he founded, but has had little to do with over the past few years. He’s also set to appear on “America’s Got Talent” and the game show “The Wall.” Dykstra never directly identified Hardwick in her essay, but described abusive behavior from a high-profile man that included sexual assault and abuse that triggered an eating disorder.
