CNN has pulled all episodes of the late Anthony Bourdain’s show, “Parts Unknown,” that feature his former girlfriend Asia Argento from its streaming platform after she was accused of sexual assault, according to a Sunday Mediate report. 

Actor Jimmy Bennett claims that she assaulted him in 2017 when he was 17 and she was 37. Argento denies the claim. Here’s a good rundown of the complicated case.

According to a Buzzfeed News article, CNN has also pulled an episode in which Bourdain discusses his depression and visits a therapist, though reportedly no explanation has been given for that decision. Bourdain committed suicide in June.
