Tell us if you’ve heard this before?—a white woman lied on a Black man, ruining his reputation. That seems like the case as the investigation into the alleged sexual assault on the set of Bachelor In Paradise has turned up no evidence of misconduct. 

The full statement from Warner Bros. reads:

As we previously stated, we recently became aware of allegations regarding an incident on the set of Bachelor in Paradise in Mexico. We take all such allegations seriously. The safety, security and well-being of the cast and crew is our number one concern, and we suspended filming so that the allegations could be investigated immediately and thoroughly. Our internal investigation, conducted with the assistance of an outside law firm, has now been completed. Out of respect for the privacy interests of those involved, we do not intend to release the videotape of the incident. We can say, however, that the tape does not support any charge of misconduct by a cast member. Nor does the tape show, contrary to many press reports, that the safety of any cast member was ever in jeopardy. Production on this season of Bachelor in Paradise will be resuming, and we plan to implement certain changes to the show’s policies and procedures to enhance and further ensure the safety and security of all participants.

DeMario Jackson always maintained that the sexual contact he had with fellow castmate Corinne Olympios was consensual despite her claims that she was too drunk to give consent.

We guess the folks at Warner Bros. finally decided to actually watch the footage. In no way are we condoning Jackson’s headass behavior that put him in such a situation. But what ramifications will Olympios face for sullying his name?

We suggest he sue her for all she’s worth, to start.
