“one of the authors had previously conducted academic research with unethical behaviors”

Behavioral Sciences informs us that:

We are writing to inform you that we will not be able to process your
paper further. We’ve received a serious concern from one of our invited
reviewers who pointed out that one of the authors had previously
conducted academic research with unethical behaviors. Therefore, with
our additional consultation with the Editor in Chief of /Behavioral
Sciences/, we are not able to accept this manuscript, and further
process it.

No addition information was given. Presumably referring to the OKCupid affair for which formal charges were never filed (but guilty in the media is good enough apparently).

Editors in chief are Scott J. Hunter and John Coverdale, none of who I have heard of.
