Earlier this week, Yvette Nicole Brown was announced to be taking over the job as moderator for the Walking Dead / Fear the Walking Dead panel at Comic-Con. This gig came about after Chris Hardwick and AMC opted to change things following allegations of sexual assault that were levied against him by his ex Chloe Dykstra. Since that time the internet has been aflutter with all sorts of discussion and controversy on that subject, and in particular Brown found herself attacked by many over her decision to take part in the panel.
So what did Brown have to say in response to much of the commentary that she has received? In a post on Twitter, here is what she had to say on the subject:
I will say this once. I am filling in for a friend, which I have done before. I am not jockeying for a job. I have enough of my own. It is my prayer that God’s Will is done in the midst of this process & that everyone is okay. My character is known & sound. Nothing has changed.
Brown’s comments comes after there were calls for her to replace Hardwick personally on Talking Dead, as she has been a frequent guest on the series alongside Hardwick on many occasions. AMC still has not made a firm decision when it comes to the series’ future, including whether or not they will make a hosting change. They have already scrapped plans to air the latest season of Talking with Chris Hardwick, and there has not been any indication as to whether or not some of these episodes are going to air in the future. As of right now, everything remains in limbo and we don’t exactly think that the Comic-Con panel for The Walking Dead will make things any easier. The primary goal here is to just celebrate these two series rather than focus on the aftershow and its host.
