The Newly Appointed Editor Of Gay Times Has Been Fired For Posting Dozens Of Offensive Tweets

Post by Guest on Fri Nov 17, 2017 1:17 am

Josh Rivers apologised after BuzzFeed News asked him to square a series of old racist, misogynistic, and ableist tweets with his new public support for diversity.

The newly-appointed editor of Britain's oldest gay title, Gay Times, has been fired after dozens of offensive tweets he had previously written were uncovered. In an interview with BuzzFeed News published on 15 November, Josh Rivers apologised for a series of racist, misogynistic, and ableist tweets. Later that day he was suspended, and on Thursday his employment was "terminated with immediate effect".

Gay Times said in a statement: "We sincerely apologise for the offence that has been caused, particularly to those members of our wider community to whom such inappropriate and unacceptable commentary was the focus. Gay Times does not tolerate such views and will continue to strive to honour and promote inclusivity."

The article is very long, but so is the number of appalling things he has said.
