A&E pulls ‘Adult Adoption’ from the air after concerns were raised over star Danny Huff’s scary behavior

A&E pulled its controversial new show Adults receive Adults broadcast this weekas well as the removal of all episodes online, after fans raised concerns about one of the show’s stars, Danny Huff, The Daily Beast has confirmed.

The docuseries, which premiered in January, was scheduled to release its fourth episode on Monday night, but failed to air. As of Tuesday morning, the show had been removed from the official A&E website, and previous episodes were no longer available for purchase on Apple TV or available to stream on YouTube.

The show follows several couples looking to adopt other adults, with Ohio-based Huff and his wife Christy becoming the series’ standout stars — but not in the way they might have expected. .

The couple are planning to adopt pregnant Ileana, 20, from Austria, whom Huff met online in a social media group for people interested in adult adoption. Fans were quick to accuse Huff of having ulterior motives in adopting Ileana, pointing out that he admitted that he had previously tried to adopt an 18-year-old girl, but things didn’t go well. because Huff developed feelings for her.

The writing seems to be written on the wall for a family of three, and My colleague Nick Schager nailed the emotions of concern in his review last month of the series..

“Danny’s ill-advised motives for bringing Ileana into the family are obvious, but with a grin, he frequently declares his excitement about being a father, and performs calling Ileana his son his girlfriend while Christy looks so heartbroken… he sits Ileana in a trailer right outside his front door, buying her tons of baby clothes and paying for medical appointments her, and say things like, ‘At the end of the day, Ileana, I want you to stay right here’ because I love to hug you and you’re awfully sweet. ‘”

While A&E did not respond to The Daily Beast’s request for comment on why the show was pulled, Huff confirmed to The Daily Beast that he is aware that the show has been taken down and is no longer airing.

However, he insists that the allegations regarding his conduct are not the reason why the show appears to be boxed indefinitely. He also denied acting inappropriately against Ileana, saying any allegations of misconduct were “completely untrue.”

“I have never had any inappropriate actions, words, or comments towards her,” he said.

“I have never had any inappropriate actions, words, comments towards her…”

But in a follow-up request, Huff did not respond to a request for comment on a deleted TikTok video that began circulating last week..

“Racism still exists in this country,” he said in a video posted last February on his official TikTok account.

“Unfortunately, it comes from the Negro. White people are largely not racist, we don’t care. Black History Month, BET, all-black colleges, Black Lives Matter, these are just examples of how racism is alive and well in this country. ”
