Fired Nick Showrunner Chris Savino Responds to Sexual Harassment Allegations: ‘I Am Deeply Sorry’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Former “Loud House” showrunner Chris Savino has responded to allegations of sexual harassment, with a post on Facebook.

“I am deeply sorry and I am ashamed,” he wrote on his page.

“Although it was never my intention, I now understand that the impact of my actions and communications created an unacceptable environment. At every stage of my career, I have sought to uplift my colleagues and cultivate a culture of respect. In this objective, I have failed. I should have known better, I should have acted better, and this has been a difficult but valuable lesson.

“I have nothing but the deepest respect for the bravery of the women who have spoken out, trying to create an environment in which they can thrive to their fullest potential.”

Savino was fired from Nickelodeon on October 19, after reports surfaced online about inappropriate behavior. A dozen women have accused Savino of inappropriate behavior — dating back several years — including unwanted sexual advances as well as threats of retribution after the end of consensual relationships.

In an internal memo, Cyma Zarghami, president of Viacom’s Nickelodeon group, promised employees they would be safe if they spoke up: “In the current climate, it feels necessary to say that if you should encounter an uncomfortable situation at work, or witness one, you are safe to speak up. If you hear something, and are unsure of what to do, you are safe to tell your supervisor or Human Resources. If you need help, in any way, you are safe to ask for it.”
