    CNN has pulled episodes of the late celebrity chef Anthony
    Bourdain’s show “Parts Unknown” that feature now-disgraced
    actress Asia Argento.

    Argento, who was dating Bourdain at the time of his death, was
    featured in two episodes of the show. Both are no longer
    available on CNN Go, the company’s streaming platform. The
    episodes will reportedly also not be shown in syndication.

    It recently came to light that Argento allowed Bourdain to pay
    $380,000 to actor Jimmy Bennett. The actor had sought legal
    action against the actress for an alleged sexual encounter that
    took place when he was 17 and she was 37.

    “In light of the recent news reports about Asia Argento, CNN
    will discontinue airing past episodes of ‘Parts Unknown’ that
    included her, until further notice,” a spokesperson for the
    network told Fox News.

    The episodes that feature Argento include Bourdain’s trip to
    Rome in Season 8 as well as Hong Kong in Season 11, the latter
    of which she actually directed. As Deadline notes, Bourdain
    previously called the Rome episode their “most beautiful show”
    and Hong Kong a “professional highlight.”

    Representatives for CNN did not immediately respond to Fox News’
    request for comment.

    As previously reported, Argento, a prominent voice in the #MeToo
    movement that helped bring down disgraced movie mogul Harvey
    Weinstein, was revealed in a New York Times article to have paid
    off Bennett. The sexual incident allegedly occurred in a hotel
    room years ago where Bennett, who played Argento’s son in a film
    when he was 4 years old, claims Argento gave him alcohol,
    performed oral sex and then had sex with him.

    Argento denied the allegations, but confirmed that Bourdain
    offered to pay off Bennett so that the accusations wouldn’t be
    an issue for her publicly at a time when she was getting a lot
    of attention for her allegations against Weinstein.

    “My trauma resurfaced as she came out as a victim herself. I
    have not made a public statement in the past days and hours
    because I was ashamed and afraid to be part of the public
    narrative,” Bennett said in a statement.

    In addition to having her episodes of “Parts Unknown” pulled,
    Argento was axed as a judge for the back half of “X Factor
    Italy” this season.
