Chris Hardwick's Ex Jacinda Barrett Says Due Process Is Needed

Chris Hardwick‘s former fiancee Jacinda Barrett is speaking out to defend her ex after he was accused of sexual assault and emotional abuse by former girlfriend Chloe Dykstra.

The 46-year-old television personality has lost several jobs amid the allegations and Jacinda says we must give due process to both the accuser and the accused.

“This past week I have watched someone I once loved and shared four years of my life with be publicly accused of misconduct and abuse, then swiftly fired and shunned,” Jacinda wrote on her Instagram account. “The accuser’s story bears no resemblance to the one I shared with him all those years ago, but what is of supreme importance here is that every woman and every man deserves a voice. Accuser and Accused. Everyone deserves to be heard. A rush to judgement denies the right to due process; the Metoo movement deserves due process.”

Jacinda also wrote, “Imagine you are sitting in a courtroom. A person walks in and in their own words reads a statement accusing you of wrongdoing. The punishment for this crime is to lose your livelihood, legacy, reputation and to be publicly shamed. Without examination of evidence, without due course the judge turns to everyone there and says what do you think? Guilty?”

Chris‘ wife Lydia Hearst has also spoken out to defend her husband amid the allegations.

Chloe‘s boyfriend Robert Kazinsky has shown support for her and says he has seen evidence of the allegations.
