DJ Olivia Dope recently explained her departure from the Joe Budden Network and the ‘See The Thing Is’ podcast, and she made some disappointing remarks about Budden and his conduct while working with him.

Olivia alleges Joe made ‘sexually suggestive’ remarks toward her while on the show and Joe has since issued an apology on behalf of himself and the network. He also expressed his commitment to women’s rights.

“As a podcaster, it is my job to address topics and create dialogue around them. During the conversation on the See, The Thing Is podcast I didn’t handle the topics with the sensitivity they deserved,” he said via Rolling Stone. “I recognize my words and power in that situation created and upsetting environment for Olivia. Upon reflection, both the network and I take accountability for this.”

He continued saying, “I apologize sincerely to Olivia, her former co-hosts, out staff, and the public. In an effort to not further any trauma, the episode will be removed from all platforms. We support all women’s rights to feel comfortable and protected in the workplace. We fell short of that in this instance.”

Olivia Dope spoke out about her experience on the podcast, saying it was “traumatizing” and “embarrassing”. She also alleged that Joe suggested they should have sex during the recording. Olivia clearly stated Joe “continuously made sexual, suggestive remarks to me that made me feel extremely uncomfortable as well as fearful of dampening the mood if I didn’t laugh along while he made those sexual remarks to me.”
