Diddy Responds to Racism Accusations Against Revolt TV CEO
by Asia Mobley
Revolt founder, Diddy, in response to claims of Revolt CEO Roma Khanna telling a former employee “black women intimidate her.” says his company has a “zero-tolerance” policy when it comes to discrimination of any kind.
According to a report in Page Six, the ex-employee wrote a letter to Revolt’s board reading:
“From a place of genuine concern on behalf of myself, as a young, educated black woman, for the people currently employed at Revolt who are fearful of losing their jobs, and in an attempt to preserve the reputation and perception of this company.”
The letter also alleged, 99 percent of the 30 percent of Revolt workers recently laid off were African-American. According to Diddy, these reports are inaccurate.
“Revolt is led by a woman of color who is expected to uphold the same standards that I hold for all of my companies. After an extensive review led by outside counsel, there were no findings of deliberate misconduct. At this time, Roma Khanna will remain as CEO of Revolt.” he told TMZ.
Diddy affirmed his company’s commitment to diversity, by adding:
“Regarding the recent restructure, Revolt’s diversity remains unchanged. We are 67% ethnically diverse, with more than 60% of the senior leadership being women. Any suggestion that any company of mine negatively targets African Americans is absurd and offensive.”
There was no further comment from Khanna.
