The Hostas community college was on the verge of closure when the show’s co-hosts, Morbid Podcast hosts Morbid and Deadspin writer Nick Kroll, were fired for “inappropriate sexual conduct” with their female students.
The two, who were fired last year, faced a lawsuit from the college and a federal judge.
The lawsuit claimed they were fired without cause.
“As a result of these circumstances, the Hostasphere program was terminated effective June 29, 2016, and its future as a programming asset in Hostaspheres educational institution is uncertain,” the suit said.
The hosts’ firing has reignited the debate over whether colleges can fire people for their personal behavior.
Last year, an unnamed former host of the show was suspended after he allegedly harassed two female students, the Associated Press reported.
But the hosts’ suit says they have never harassed anyone.
“We’ve never engaged in sexual misconduct with anyone, and we’re proud of the fact that we never did,” Kroll told the AP in June.
“That being said, we have a zero tolerance policy for any kind of sexual harassment on the Hostascapes show,” he added.
“We’ve been very clear that we want to be safe on the show, and to have a great workplace environment for all our employees.”
Kroll and host Carlos Mencia also defended their behavior on the program, which is taped every week.
“I think it’s important to point out that the hosts are not doing anything illegal,” Mencia told the Associated Media.
“There’s no proof that the host’s behavior was illegal, but they are saying they’re not.”
