The situation has continued to unfold with different parties jumping in to side with Dykstra or Hardwick.
Most recently, Hardwick’s wife, Lydia Hearst, and mother-in-law, Patty Hearst, have publicly declared their support of the 46 year-old nerd media mogul. Even before Hardwick’s response, Legendary Entertainment had all mentions of the Nerdist Industries co-founder and former chief executive wiped from its website and released a statement clarifying that “Hardwick [has] had no operational involvement with Nerdist for the two years preceding the expiration of his contract in December 2017.”Then came AMC’s announcement that Hardwick had “decided to step aside from moderating planned AMC and BBC America panels at Comic-Con International in San Diego next month.” The network also stated that it would hold off on airing the second season of “Talking with Chris Hardwick,” which was scheduled to premiere last Sunday, while AMC “assess[es] the situation.”NBC, home of the Hardwick-hosted game show “The Wall,” also released a statement that the network is “continuing to assess the situation and will take appropriate action based on the outcome.” Now known for his enthusiasm for all things nerd, Hardwick first hit the scene in the 1990s as host of MTV’s dating gameshow “Singled Out.” But he struggled to capitalize on that first brush with fame.“It took me falling on my face a bunch after MTV and living in a beer bottle for several years to wake up and go, ‘Oh, you actually have to create the life you want.
Hardwick said in a statement that he was “heartbroken” by Dykstra’s claims.“l was blindsided by her post and always wanted the best for her,” the statement read.
And in the last couple of years, it’s really started to work out.” After “chasing jobs to survive, auditioning for jobs, trying to get jobs that [he] didn’t really care about [and] feeling bad about not getting them anyway,” he decided to just focus on things he loves, Hardwick said in 2016.
This meant drawing upon interests such as Dungeon & Dragons, comic books, computers and video games — things that he has said made him a target of ridicule in his youth.
He soon expanded the Nerdist brand to include a network of podcasts and You Tube shows before partnering with Peter Levin to form Nerdist Industries in 2012.
In addition to his Internet endeavors, Hardwick started hosting AMC’s “Talking Dead” in 2011.
