The Proposal is coming under fire. Deadline reports ABC has pulled an episode of the TV show amid accusations of sexual assault against one of the male contestants.
The reality dating show is hosted by Jesse Palmer and follows matchmakers as they select a panel of eligible men or women to compete for the heart of a mystery suitor.
Per Deadline, ABC has decided to pull the second episode of The Proposal because of recent sexual misconduct allegations made against contestant Michael J. Friday. While the show hasn’t been cancelled, the network is reviewing the matter and has released the following statement:
An allegation has been made against a contestant on next week’s episode of The Proposal. While the accusation was not related to the contestant’s appearance on the program, we take it very seriously. ABC and the producers of ‘The Proposal’ are pulling the episode while this matter is under review.”
