Restaurateur Mario Batali has been asked to “step away” from ABC’s The Chew while the network reviews allegations of sexual misconduct. ABC said while they are unaware of any type of inappropriate behavior involving him and anyone affiliated with the show, “we will swiftly address any alleged violations of our standards of conduct.” An expose on blog Eater New York accuses Batali of inappropriate touching over at least two decades. Batali, who is also taking a leave from his businesses, responded, “I apologize to the people I have mistreated and hurt. Although the identities of most of the individuals mentioned in these stories have not been revealed to me, much of the behavior described does, in fact, match up with ways I have acted. That behavior was wrong and there are no excuses. I take full responsibility and am deeply sorry for any pain, humiliation or discomfort I have caused to my peers, employees, customers, friends and family.”
