On April 9, 2018, Tiger Lee Clarke's chief accuser, Alexis Laramie, committed suicide by jumping off the 33 Thomas Street building in Manhattan, New York City.

On April 15, 2018, Tiger Lee Clarke formed a movement, Tiger's Words, dedicated to helping "reform the world after the events of 2016 and 2017, and to stop politics and activism from invading the entertainment industry for good." It was, for a while, affiliated with the TERF movement.
On May 18, 2018, six of the sexual harassment accusations were debunked by a investigation conducted by CNN. It was discovered accusers Michelle Stainton and Samantha Jones were not working for ICHC Channel at the time the encounters with Tiger Lee Clarke reportedly took place, and an unidentified accuser was revealed to be a internet troll. However, their information were then published by CNN, which resulted in a big backlash, thus launching a group of attacks against CNN's ratings and sponsorships.

On August 28, 2018, all accusations towards Tiger Lee Clarke was retracted after negotiations and a court case, where a lot of evidence pointed out, in half of the occasions where Tiger was supposedly the offender, that another person was the actual offender. Clarke reportedly apologized anyway and promised to combat sexual harassment in KMF Studios. However, due to the ongoing liquidation process, Clarke could not save ICHC Holdings or take part in the process.
