Was it wrong for ABC to use alleged sexual misconduct to promote 'Bachelor in Paradise'?

Hollywood Reporter interviewed Robert Mills, senior vice president of alternative series at ABC. He said:

'Paradise' is not a set that was in any way unsafe or causing harm to contestants or producers, or to anyone who was down in Mexico at the time. It was an incredibly thorough investigation, as has been reported. It was an allegation made by people who actually weren’t there, but who had alleged something, so we had to look into it. Once we found that there was in fact no wrongdoing and that nothing had happened, we knew we had to address it in some way. Some of the tape in question, we wouldn’t have shown ordinarily. It doesn’t really further the story. Just because something was taped doesn’t mean we have to show it. We are in no way trying to hide anything. I think you’ll feel that in those two days of the premiere, we have told the entire story of what happened, why production shut down and what happened when everybody came back. I am pretty confident it will answer any questions that anyone has.

Still, critics argue ABC shouldn't have teased alleged sexual assault for ratings.
