MTV shut down production on “Catfish” last month when a woman who appeared on the show three years ago posted a video claiming Nev Schulman sexually harassed her during her episode’s production. Everybody who knows and works with Nev said this absolutely did not happen and that this woman was just making this claim to get more subscribers to her YouTube channel. This woman never filed a formal complaint, but in light of the current climate, MTV decided to shut things down while they investigated. And now “Catfish” cameras are rolling again. MTV released a statement saying, “The independent investigator found the allegations made in the YouTube videos to be not credible and without merit.”
