“Chris Noth will no longer film additional episodes of The Equalizer, effective immediately,” Universal Television and CBS said in a statement. His character will remain on rerun episodes.

Noth has been accused of rape by two women. One of his accusers claims the alleged incident happened in Los Angeles in 2004. The second alleges he assaulted her in New York City in 2015.

Law & Order actor Zoe Lister-Jones has also accused him of sexually inappropriate behavior.

Following the accusations, Noth has been dropped by his talent agency, A3 Artists Agency. His popular Peloton ad — post-Mr. Big's death — has also been pulled.

Noth's bank account has been affected. As Radar reported, he allegedly lost out on a $12 million deal to sell his tequila brand. However, an unnamed spokesperson tells Radar that “No definitive agreement was ever signed.”

"At this point in time it doesn't make sense for us to move forward with this deal in light of the claims, which must be taken with the utmost seriousness," said Entertainment Arts Research, Inc's CEO, Bernard Rubin, in a press release. "That said, we continue to be on the lookout for spirits brands that fit EARI's ethos of social responsibility."

The women stepped forward with their allegations after claiming they were triggered by all the publicity surrounding the SATC reboot, And Just Like That.

While Noth continues to lose jobs and deals, one person has his back. His ex-TV wife Bridget Moynahan refused to talk about the allegations when confronted by a photographer on Monday.

Noth has denied all allegations, saying, “The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false. These stories could’ve been from 30 years ago or 30 days ago — no always means no — that is a line I did not cross. The encounters were consensual. It’s difficult not to question the timing of these stories coming out. I don’t know for certain why they are surfacing now, but I do know this: I did not assault these women."
