'Extra' Host A.J. Calloway Suspended After More Allegations of Sexual Misconduct

Posted: Updated:

"Extra" host A.J. Calloway has been suspended from his job after several women accused him of sexual misconduct in the workplace.

In a statement, Warner Bros.Television, which syndicates the show Calloway has worked on since 2005, told The Hollywood Reporter that it began an "internal review" after the allegations surfaced.

"Upon becoming aware of allegations of sexual misconduct against AJ Calloway, we began an internal review to determine whether there had been any misconduct by Mr. Calloway on Extra and whether any employee of the show had been the victim of any such misconduct. To date, we have found nothing to suggest that Mr. Calloway has ever engaged in workplace misconduct," Warner Bros. said in part.

The company added that Calloway is suspended "pending further review. We take such allegations very seriously and are committed to doing everything we can to ensure a safe and inclusive workplace for all of our employees."

Two women also came forward with similar claims last month.

And in June, domestic violence activist Sil Lai Abrams claimed Calloway assaulted her in 2006. At that time, he denied any wrongdoing.

In a tweet Saturday, Abrams wrote, “It’s about d**n time Warner Bros. @extratv. #MeToo”

Calloway’s lawyer, Lisa Davis, told THR that “Mr. Calloway maintains that these unsubstantiated allegations are patently false. He vehemently denies that he ever assaulted anyone and looks forward to clearing his name."
