The Food Network has scrubbed season 20 of “Worst Cooks In America” after its champion, Ariel Robinson, was arrested for murdering a child.
Robinson, 29, and her husband, Jerry Robinson, were arrested and charged in the death of their 3-year-old adopted daughter.
According to WHNS, police found an unresponsive child at the Robinson residence in Simpsonville, South Carolina, on January 14.
A medical examination revealed the child, identified as Victoria Smith, died as a result of several blunt force injuries.
Ariel Robinson and Jerry Robinson have been charged with multiple counts of homicide by child abuse.
Ariel won $25,000 in the latest edition of “Worst Cooks in America,” where people with admittedly poor cooking skills compete through a boot camp under the guidance of a celebrity chef.
Robinson’s winning season was filmed in February 2020 and aired last year.
The network has since scrubbed the entire season as if it never happened in the wake of this heinous crime.
I hope they are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
