Irving said he had his appearances canceled due to the allegations.
McCathern told TMZ: “Clearly Michael is the latest victim of our cancellation culture, where all it takes is an accusation to ruin one’s life. ‘Michael looks forward to being cleared in court and hopes the Court of Public Opinion will also see the truth come out.’
‘When I entered the hotel [on Sunday night], they asked me what I was doing and I said, “I just went straight to the room,” Irvin said. ‘But I guess I met someone in the lobby – talked to someone in the lobby for about a minute then I went to my room. And after I got up there, they said they have to transfer me to the hotel. I said, ‘Move me into a hotel for what?
‘So they moved my hotel, and I said, “What’s going on guys? What’s going on? Why are we moving hotels?”
‘They said, “Well, you walked in last night, you talked to someone.” I said, “I don’t talk to anybody. I went straight to my room.”
‘And then they showed on camera that I was talking to someone. I talked to this girl for about a minute. I don’t know what – they didn’t show me. They told me that. I haven’t seen it. But that’s why they moved me, because I guess the girl said I said something to her the minute we talked, and so they moved me.’
‘That’s why I’m hiding to wait and see how things play out,’ Irvin added. ‘It was a minute meeting somewhere in the lobby. I don’t even remember it really because I had a few drinks, to tell you the truth.’
