‘And Just like That…’ Chris Noth Gets Canceled over Assault Accusations
Multiple women have come forward with allegations of physical misconduct by Chris Noth.
This includes assault and molestation, just after the launch of HBO Max's highly anticipated Sex And The City reboot, And Just Like That.
Because of the allegations, Noth's career has taken a rapid turn, with business associates, CBS, and even his agency canceling him.
Here is everything about the accusations and the actor getting canceled.
Chris Noth Canceled Because Of Accusations
A lengthy report was published on December 16, 2021, detailing the experiences of two women, alleging that Noth physically defiled them in 2004 and 2015.
The actor, in his defense, reacted with a statement claiming that the encounters were consensual and that he did not abuse the two ladies.

A third woman came forward with assault accusations only a day after those allegations were made public.
She spoke about an encounter with the actor in 2010 when she was 18 and working in a New York City restaurant.
With his representative, Noth continued to refute the latest charge. He claimed that this scandal was pure fabrication.
He continued to remark that a "no" is a "no" and that he has never crossed that line and would never do so.
Chris Noth Canceled By Contemporaries
Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis, co-stars with Noth on Sex and the City, issued a joint statement regarding the scandal on social media.
They stated they support the ladies for offering their accounts and accusations. Nixon later shared the post on her Twitter, stating that they stand by the women who have spoken up about their traumatic experiences.
She also mentioned that they recognize how challenging it is to speak up and applaud them for completing it.

After Noth's character perished in the premiere of And Just Like That after finishing an arduous Peloton cycle ride, the company took advantage of the situation. They made an ad suggesting the character was alive and well.
Peloton promptly canceled the advertising from all social media accounts the same day the scandal came to light. The company then said that allegations of such assault must be handled seriously.
When they had highlighted Noth in their response to HBO's revival, they were unaware of these accusations.
They have now ceased advertising the video and preserved related social posts while they strive to learn more.
Chris Noth — Canceled And Fired
Noth, who portrayed William Bishop on the CBS show The Equalizer, has been sacked from the series shortly before Parker, Nixon, and Davis published their statement.
CBS announced Noth would no longer film additional episodes of The Equalizer because of the scandal. His last appearances were the episodes that had already been shot.

Similarly, the talent agency A3 Artists Agency withdrew Noth as a client the day after the accusations were made public.
The actor had just recently joined the agency in October 2021 but was dropped two months later. Finally, when the allegations had surfaced, Noth was on the verge of sealing a contract for his tequila brand.
But the project is now off the table. The beverage business, Entertainment Arts Research, had come close to buying the Ambhar brand for $12 million before the scandal.
