A.J. Calloway (left) has been let go as the co-host of entertainment TV show 'Extra' following multiple allegations of sexual assault.

Calloway, who is best known as host of 106 & Park on BET, helmed Extra for 14 years until he was suspended by Warner Bros. Television executives in February.

In a statement to the Hollywood Reporter, a spokesperson for the studio explained why the decision was made to cut Calloway loose.

"The company has investigated the claims made into Mr Calloway's conduct and he and the company have mutually agreed to part ways."

The 44-year-old was accused of sex assaults in New York, New Jersey and California that occurred between 2003 and 2013. His lawyer said he “vehemently" denies the allegations.

Mario Lopez, who co-anchors Extra's weekday broadcasts, is another employee whose job is on the chopping block.

On Wednesday, Lopez quickly walked back comments he made about parents allowing their minor children to switch genders.

Lopez, 45, called the trend "weird" and "dangerous" in an interview with conservative commentator Candace Owens that aired on YouTube.com last month.

"My God if you're three-years-old and you're saying you're feeling a certain way you think you're a boy or a girl whatever the case may be... I just think it's dangerous as a parent to make that determination then, OK well then you're gonna be a boy or a girl," he said.

Lopez apologized profusely after his job was reportedly threatened.

"The comments I made were ignorant and insensitive, and I now have a deeper understanding of how hurtful they were. I have been and always will be an ardent supporter of the LGBTQ community, and I am going to use this opportunity to better educate myself. Moving forward I will be more informed and thoughtful."

Owens lashed out at "leftist bullies" who called for Lopez to be fired.

Extra is one of the most popular entertainment shows in America, and airs on NBC stations. British reality TV star Mark Wright joined the program as a correspondent in 2017.

    I sure hope Mario's job will be spared. He spoke nothing but truth and what many others feel.

    Can't blame no one but themselves, they both knew better. Mario knows what industry he's in.

    AJ BEEN rumored to be a creep. For YEARS. Get his ass outta there. Fukk Mario and Candace too.

  • Wreckognize Game

    I think Mario was attacked because he said his kids don’t kick it with transgender kids. That made it discrimination. Otherwise he might have gotten a pass for Christian beliefs.

  • tia

    That's so sad. So if you agree with the "fuckery" you cool. If not, you're out the door. Best not to say anything. They say we have free speech; home of the free. But are we really free tho??

    I don't even know who Candace Owens is but her statement rings TRUTH.

    THIS!!!

  • Junkanoo

    This me too movement is bizarre some people are being punished while others like Trump are getting away with it. Hollywood has way more sexual predators but only a random few are being dealt with . Mario is a fool he knows the gay's run tinsel town but said what he said and didn't stand by it even though it was the truth.

  • Jacquelyn Eff

    For once I agree with Candace. But at the same time, protect yourself. Just don’t comment on LGBTQ or racial issues if you’re a public figure.

  • WhoKnew

    It's like I said yesterday when I read that Mario had walked back his statement his YOB must have yanked his coattails and said and was finna interfere with his coins. It's hard finding a YOB these days so he had to cave. I still think he should have stood by his comments and beliefs.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Yep! So many folk was behind him n respected his bravery for sayin what so many wish to say

  • WhoKnew

    As far as AJ how are you married and sexually harassing women in this day and age for all those years? This fool must not like eating.

  • Li-Wright

    I feel sorry for Lopez for speaking his mind. Damn! Hollywood is very liberal isn't it? I hope he gets support from the Latinx community.

    OT: This is a very interesting interview.

  • KarmaBackAround

  • WhoKnew

    Exactly. It was like kudos to Mario for saying what no one else was brave enough to say. Or for having a conversation about a topic folks were unwilling to talk about.

  • CeCe

    How is that discrimination? Parents have a responsibility to decide who their kids hang with. He's being attacked because of his Christian beliefs. There is nothing wrong with what he shared. It's his right to feel and believe as he does.

    I LOVED it when he said he sends his kids to Catholic school because the lines are clear; boys and girls. That's all there is. All these other genders are made up and rooted in mental instability.

  • Phillybruh

    It wasn't the alphabet crew as you all like to say that got him together, it was his wife who saw a change in her lifestyle coming if he looses that gig. Lets be real he's not really brining in the roles. Sometimes your circle is who gets you together before anyone else has a chance to. But he will probably be shown the door.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Alphabet gang is at it again smh, the man said nothing offensive to anyone outside of his household smh.

    And he still got biotched ??.. we gotta get somebody strong like farrakhan

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    How do you explain this to your child and your wife, that your high paying job doesn't exist anymore? Has to be an awkward conversation to say the least.
    And when he finally gets another job, it''ll probably pay a whole lot less than EXTRA was paying him. He's been in the game for a while. Let's hope he saved and invested his money well.

  • Yardgirl

    She also claimed the Russ Simmons raped her. I knew that one but not the AJ story. SMH

  • KarmaBackAround

    Its like the movement cherry picks who it wants to destroy smh...

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I have a feeling one of his bosses probably pulled him to the side and let him know he had to apologize, or his job would be at risk.

  • Bonita

    Thank you! The gay community is the largest group of bullies on the planet. I'm sick of people apologizing to them because they are threatened for having differing views.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    AJ Calloway is a black gay man

  • Branch Davidian

    People are tired of being shamed for having an opinion. Owens is right. Get ready for 4 more years of MAGA!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yeah, I try to see if I can give a brotha the benefit of the doubt with these types of allegations... but when people in 3 different states are accusing you of the same behavior, I'm inclined to think there's probably some truth to it. It's hard to see who's going to hire him now with sexual assault allegations attached to his name.
    I'm sure his wife must be really mad right now. He messed the family money up.

  • TransMichelle

    Yep, there's a war on men. They don't mention all the little boys in Hollywood and all over that have been molested and sexually assaulted. It's all about the women. There's an agenda in place and if you don't hang with the freaks...you're out.

    https://media3.giphy.com/media/wg0qJIDh7QwW4/giphy.gif

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I actually agree with what Mario said, but he should have been smarter in that interview. When you're a public figure you cant always say everything you're thinking. Why mess your money up?
    He could have chosen his words carefully, sidestepped the question and kept it moving. Why create problems for yourself if you know it could cost you your high-paying job?

  • Let them eat cake

You can't sell your soul to Satan(Hollywood industry), and expect to buy it back! You're owned!

  • GeorgiaH

    When did that happen? Before or after his 2 wives and all the woman claiming he sexually harassed them?

  • Gloria

    So basically, if you disgaree with the LGBTQ community about ANYTHING (publicly), you could be fired from your job.

    I didn't want to believe that there was an "agenda" like some of you roses say there is but now.... I'm starting to believe it.

    Not even Hollywood. Extra is considered entertainment media. Keyword is media. Ive said it once, I shall say it again. Quickest way to get fired from any MEDIA job is be outspoken. They hate it. They have fired VETERAN REAL news reporters due to them having an opinion. So very easily the likes of Mario Lopez who is just a pretend journalist etc... can go and kick ROCKS. If you want to have a say and opinion then media of any form is NOT FOR YOU. Im sorry its just how it is. Black, white, purple. Sit your ass up there and spout what YOU believe and they might even cut the whole thing short for the day JUST to march YOUR ass outta there.

    Oh I know the media heavily programs Americans but a LGBTQ agenda? Hmmm. Sounds hard to believe initially because they were a marginalized group for so long. The government wasn't concerned with HIV prevention or treatment because that was a "gay man's disease" Now times have changes and somehow, they've managed to garner enough power to take over Hollywood though??? Its impressive and sad. Why couldn't black people be this influential, dammit.

    Well if he was worried about losing his job I guess he should have shut up. But when you real about yours, losing a job is the last thing you worry about.

They walk folks out every damn day from news stations, newspapers, magazines, mad media entities for this crap. Im trying to figure out why Mario gets a pass?

    Go and say something stupid and have someone record it and see how quickly you end up in the unemployment line.

    Opinions are fine as long as you’re not the face of a million dollar brand. Mario wasn’t wrong, however, the company he works for has to appear open-minded and accepting of *all* lifestyles and choices. If you want to take a firm stance do it on your own dollar ?????

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I always got that vibe from him.
    He is a bit too pretty for his own good.

  • GuestSTAR

    Which is why I don't keep much of anything at work. If I were to get laid off/fired today, I wouldn't even need a box. Me, my water bottle and handbag are out........
    I work with some people who will need a number of boxes, making a number of trips. Their cubicle is like a 2nd home to them.

  • Ms..N

    So having an opinion gets you fired these days!! Smdh People are too damn sensitive and we are all entitled to our individual opinions!!

    I use the ACV rinse in the shower (diluted in water, of course). It helps with dandruff and clarifying - once it's rinsed out, you don't smell it. Very good for natural hair, but shouldn't be left in long.

    Mario has a new job on Access Hollywood. He just signed a new contract, so they can't fire him.

  • dru and neil

    I didn’t get that vibe until I saw how botoxed he was in this interview, that is extreme vanity for a man. One of the luxuries of being a man is actually looking sexier with age if you allow it.

  • TheRealTW

    Are the Freemasons gonna help A. J.? He sent out the signal in that photo. Look at his hands.

  • Li-Wright

    I think Mario has other jobs too; right? Doesn't he host pagents and game shows? Most of these hosts have multiple jobs. They do TV hosting and pageant hosting and all kinds of things. I wouldn't worry about him.

    I am still trying to figure out how what Mario said was wrong? He never said anything negative about transgender people. He just said that 3 years old is not old enough to know if you are transgender. How is that wrong? Frankly, you don't know diddly squat at 3 years old, which is why you have to be taken care of by adults who know better.

    Yes he is a stuck up a$$hole. Was at a club in Manhattan a very long time ago. Recognized him from 106 and park, simply said hi wasn't trying to push up on his terminator looking a$$ or anything. But he thought he was the $hit, and acted like one. Hello karma ?

    If they fire him he needs to sue for freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

  • Tell the truth

    I am so sick of these sensitive and whiny ass gay community, man up or woman up everyone is not going to agree with y’all . Last time I checked we had freedom of speech it’s not our fault that they are so sensitive to what other people think . And then the person always have to apologize, but for what if it jeopardizes your career so what at least you stood for what you believe in . #hollyweird

    I became one of those folks at one point only because I got so damn stressed i needed to create an environment that helped me maintain my peace because i felt so close to laying my hands on someone. So I would bring fresh flowers, and burn candle wax at my desk. I'm so thankful to be out of that place but some people have a reason a d I needed that to get me thru the latter part of my days there......shaboroski! Chilee....I's free!

  • Kylla Williams

    u can share an opinion without being derogatory. mario said nothing derogatory. he stated a fact, a 3 yr old does not have the mental capacity to make that kind of decision. the average 3 yr old will drink anything because they don't know any better. a 3 yr old will continue to eat even when they're full cuz the dont know any better. a 3 yr old will rub their eyes with a handful of soap on them cuz they don't know any better and we're supposed to believe they know their gender and sexuality?

  • ALLMINE?

    Yup and that's all we care about is "racism". You'd think he was putting black folks in ovens the way we carry on about this man. ??

  • MythCalledLove

    Everyone wants to appear to be down with the cause. They scared of the "Gay Mafia". They are treated better than blacks. So now they hv made the whole world act like sheep and not one is brave enough to stray from the flock. All it takes is one company then another to be brave enough to say FU and your feelings. These celebs and companies know damn well they dont believe all this. But Jack was right that Gay Mafia is vicious..lol

  • MythCalledLove

    Get out of my head.lol Ask Jack its real..lol

  • MythCalledLove

    Bet he wont be acting all Hollywood now. Like he was when I saw him in Saks. He acted like a ass forgetting half the folks shopping in there are 4 times his worth. Now someone is about to go thru his whole life. Gay Mafia dont play they roll deep

  • MythCalledLove

    What happened to Freedom of.. Never mind

  • dontgetblocked

    Mario is about to land a major gig. Those white people are pissed he was bullied into apologizing. The Democrats have moved too far left and their own base is walking away. Black people may be sheep but they won't vote if the candidate goes against their morals or they'll secretly vote Republican especially the older ones.

  • dontgetblocked

    At my job, they walk you out the door and send your stuff to you.

  • Kylla Williams

    sooo lemme get this straight the lgbtq wants to be able to live their life with their different values and not be discriminated against in any capacity but calls for the termination of any individual who has a opposing position. having an opposing position is not the same as bigotry. ionl think mustard goes on chicken but i still like mustard.

  • Renee Bee

    Plus he played in the movie as Greg Louganis, the Olympic swimmer who was ghey. He (Greg) slept with his manager who later died of HIV.
    Mario was very believable in the movie.
    Bloop!

    Some racists believe that being able to call someone the n-word is freedom of speech too.

    They are some of the most bullying folk! We don't ALL have to agree! I don't care who you marry, live with, sleep with or do anything else with! Do you boo, but don't come at me bc I choose to be straight! Be you & do you, and I will do the same. But trying to get someone fired bc they have an OPINION, is tooooo much! Only God can judge anyone & He is NOT hiring.

  • GrandHustleGirl1

    This is allllllll an agenda to push the idea that children can make "life altering and defining adult decisions" so that later on......they can prove that children can indeed consent to inappropriate pedophilia with adults. Watch how this plays out.

    The statement he made regarding his kids not kicking it with those transgender kids was wat set them off imo.

    Don't racist white people simply have "an opinion", too? As usual discrimination is cool with heterosexual black people as long as it's NOT racism.
