MTV halted production on the popular reality program “Catfish” this week after a former guest accused the show’s host, Nev Schulman, of sexual misconduct.
He denies the allegations.
An MTV spokesperson said there is an investigation into the incident, and that the show is on hiatus indefinitely.
“We take these allegations very seriously,” the spokesperson said in a statement. “We’re working with Critical Content, our third party production company, to conduct a thorough investigation, and we’ve put a pause on shooting until the investigation is completed.”
In a pair of YouTube videos posted on May 12 and 15, Ayissha Morgan, who appeared on the show in 2015, claimed that Schulman and another crew member sexually harassed her throughout the production. Morgan, who is a lesbian, said that Schulman questioned her sexuality while propositioning her. Morgan also said he later invited her to have sex in a hotel room.

A Pennsylvania teacher, recently suspended for an alleged relationship with one of her former students, was shot to death in her mother’s driveway on Mother’s Day.
Rachael DelTondo, 32, was shot multiple times and she died on the scene. She was returning from a trip to buy ice cream with a friend, KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh reported. She was “brutally shot at close range multiple times,” in the Aliquippa driveway, Beaver County District Attorney David Lozier told Newsweek.
Police haven’t released the name or description of the suspect, who is still at large. Lozier was mum about who the suspect could be but he did reveal that he believes DelTondo knew her killer. He also said he thinks the murder was a crime of passion and that residents do not have to worry for their own safety.
DelTondo was suspended last year from her teaching job at Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School, a

A fraternity chapter at the University of Central Florida has been suspended after two students were charged with sexually assaulting a woman at a party near campus.
Students David Anthony Kirk, a 20-year-old junior pre-marketing major, and Jack Ryan Smith, a 26-year-old sophomore pre-business major, were arrested Saturday and charged with sexual battery, FOX 35 reported.

Two police officers have been suspended from their positions at the New York Police Department after a pregnant woman was found murdered. The officers had been asked to check on the woman, but did not leave their cars to investigate the situation, allegedly resulting in the death.
According to the New York Post, police received a call from the sister of 22-year-old Tonie Wells, who was concerned about the safety of her sibling, whose husband may have been putting her in considerable danger. The officers drove to the location as requested, but did not leave their vehicle to actually look into Wells’ safety. It’s unclear what they were doing instead.
“These cops completely sh*tcanned the job,” a New York Post source said. “They didn’t even go up to the house … If they did, they would have seen her.”
Wells’ body was discovered at the bottom of a basement stairwell at

A Georgia sheriff whose deputies allegedly groped nearly 1,000 students while conducting a drug search at a school in April has been suspended. The southern state’s governor, Nathan Deal, signed an executive order, which was announced on Monday. The order stated that Worth County Sheriff Jeff Hobby’s administration would be negatively affected by charges against Hobby. According to WFXL, the suspension went into effect immediately. It will last until the final disposition of the case or until Hobby’s office term expires.
Hobby currently faces charges of violation of oath by a public officer, two counts of false imprisonment and one count of sexual battery, according to NBC affiliate WALB. Hobby and several deputies from his department were indicted charges by a grand jury last month. The sheriff’s lawyer, Raleigh Rollins, has not commented on the charges which came after a federal lawsuit accused his administration of conducting

After receiving an apology letter from a recent ex-girlfriend, college student Nick Lutz decided to have some fun with it, correcting her spelling and grammar and posting the “graded” letter on Twitter, with a grade of D-, reported The Washington Post. His joke went viral—but now, it has resulted in the rising senior’s suspension.
Lutz (no relation to this writer) did not include his ex-girlfriend’s contact information, social media accounts, or last name in his tweet—just her (very common) first name. But that didn’t stop the University of Central Florida, where Lutz is studying sports management, from suspending him for the “disruptive” and “harmful” tweet.
Lutz, 21, is suspended from classes in the summer and fall 2017 semesters, his appeal letter claims. He also will be under probation until he graduates and have an assigned mentor. Finally, he must create a presentation about how his actions have “impacted others” and

A New Jersey teacher has been suspended after yearbook photos were mysteriously altered to remove pro-Donald Trump messages. According to the Associated Press, the yearbook adviser has been suspended while an investigation goes on.
As NJ.com shares, students’ t-shirts featuring pro-Trump messages like: “Trump. Make America Great Again” appear to have been photoshopped in the Wall Township High School yearbook. Superintendent Cheryl Dyer told the publication that the investigation is ongoing but there’s “no evidence to suggest that students were involved” in the altering. According to parents, at least two students wore Trump shirts in their photos which were edited.
“This is just about the issue of censorship,” said Joe Berardo, whose son’s shirt was changed. “The kids should know that they can’t be censored, unless it’s rude or inappropriate. And from the teaching side of it, I think teachers have to understand that the kids don’t check their rights at the door.”
The father met with school
