CELEBRITY #MeToo

It's never easy to come forward about an abuser, especially when your abuser is Chris Hardwick, current host of ABC's 'Talking Dead.' However that is exactly what Chloe Dykstra has just done, allegedly detailing their three-year relationship. 

In a lengthy essay on Medium, Dykstra explained that she was writing the piece as closure for herself and a warning for other people, as "Emotional abuse is a very common thing. More common than you’d think."

Their relationship, which appeared normal to the public eye, supposedly started out with many rules that restricted Dykstra from things like going out at night, talking to men, talking in public, drinking, and taking photos of them together.

Dykstra goes on to detail emotionally and sexually abusive behavior in an account that is graphic to say the least. As a result of his alleged abuse, she says she struggled with anorexia and became, as she calls it, an "ex person." When she tried to leave him, she reports that he blacklisted her and essentially ended her career. 

For anyone who doesn't believe her, Dykstra claims she also has audio/visual evidence of his abuse which, she says, she didn't include in the hopes that Hardwick would do the right thing. 

Hundreds of people are reaching out through Twitter to express their disgust for Hardwick and support for Dykstra.


Another user asked Comic Con to remove Hardwick from his panel position for 'Doctor Who.'

While she's receiving millions of people's support, Dykstra poignantly added at the end of her essay, "We’ve come a long way, but we still have a ways to go."
