ABC Pulls Backstreet Boys Holiday Special Following Nick Carter Allegations


ABC has officially yanked the Backstreet Boys Holiday Special, “A Very Backstreet Holiday”, following accusations surfaced alleging that Nick Carter raped a 17-year old back in 2001 when he was 21 years old, according to IndieWire.

According to NBC News, the lawsuit, which was filed Thursday in Clark County District Court in Las Vegas, Nevada (where Carter lives), alleges that Carter gave the woman HPV and threatened her with jail if she revealed what happened.

Additionally, the suit also alleges that used a slur to describe the woman’s disability, and said that no one would believe her. The girl has autism and cerebral palsy.

Carter denied the accusations through his lawyer Michael Holtz calling the accusation “legally meritless” and “entirely untrue” while adding that the woman had been “manipulated into making false allegations about Nick — and those allegations have changed repeatedly and materially over time.”

“No one should be fooled by a press stunt orchestrated by an opportunistic lawyer — there is nothing to this claim whatsoever, which we have no doubt the courts will quickly realize,” he said.

“A Very Backstreet Holiday” was slated to air on Wednesday, December 14th but will now be replaced by reruns of sitcoms “The Conners” and “The Goldbergs” that will run in it’s place.
