Four women made sexual misconduct allegations against ‘The Chew’ host.
Celebrity chef Mario Batali has been accused of sexual harassment by multiple women.
In an Eater New York exposé published Monday, four women accused the chef of “inappropriate touching in a pattern of behavior that spans at least two decades.”
In a statement to Eater, Batali said that he would step away from the day-to-day operations of his businesses for an unspecified period of time. ABC has also asked the chef to step away from the show “while we review the allegations that have just recently come to our attention,” a representative told Eater.
