A contestant of the CBS reality TV show, ''Love Island," has been axed amid allegations that he had participated in porn.
Last week Noah Purvis, 24, joined the second season of the dating competition, which puts young and attractive contestants in a tropical paradise, where they must pair up or risk being exiled. He suddenly exited the show days later, after photos surfaced on social media, showing Purvis in alleged videos released by a gay adult film studio, New York Daily News reported.
CBS and ITV America, the home network for "Love Island" released a statement confirming that Purvis had been removed from the show.
"It has been brought to our attention that cast member Noah Purvis provided false information on his application to Love Island, which violates his contestant agreement," the statement read.
Many viewers were outraged. "Sooo wait.... did they remove Noah because we found out he’s a bisexual porn star??" one Twitter user wrote.
"them completely editing noah out of the show doesn't sit well with me. at all. sex work is work, it shouldn't be stigmatized this much. he didn't commit any crimes, he didn't hurt any body, he didn't hurt himself. why can't he be on the show?" another tweeted.
"If the show kicked Noah out because of his porn past then Imma be pis--d. Even though I don’t know him and don’t really care about him. Sex work is still work," a third Twitter user wrote.
