Following allegations that Chris Noth sexually assaulted numerous women, the actor has been fired from the CBS series “The Equalizer“.

On the drama, Noth, 67, played William Bishop partnering Queen Latifah.

The actor’s spokesperson is still yet to comment on The Washington Post’s request for clarification.

The actor will participate in one more episode of the show in the near future. According to Deadline, the series is on pause and seven episodes of its second season have already aired.

A3 Artists, the actor’s agency, also dropped him.

Three women have come forward accusing Noth of sexual abuse. Following the complaints, the “And Just Like That” star had his Peloton ad deactivated.

Two women came forward to relate their accounts about Noth’s purported acts, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Another woman, under the pseudonym “Ava,” told the Daily Beast that he allegedly forced himself on her in the back office of a Midtown restaurant in 2010. She was working as a waitress at the time and was 18.

Ava disclosed by saying

At first, it felt as though I was the only person in the universe who could hear me saying no

Ava recounted that she encountered Noth at his table and that he forced her into his lap, grabbing and caressing her.

She went on to explain that after her shift ended, Noth needed to pay her in the restaurant office, so he kissed her and shoved her against a desk.

Noth’s accusations had originally been condemned as “total fabrication” by a representative for the company.

While talking to The Post, the representative said

The alleged accounts are detailed throughout reading like a piece of bad fiction. Chris has no knowledge of who this individual is and, as stated yesterday, has and would never cross that line
