Diddy’s Revolt TV is under fire for alleged racism by a former employee. Page Six reports a past member of the staff, who described herself as a “young educated black woman,” wrote a letter to the board of the network which cited racial discrimination from CEO Roma Khanna.
Hanna allegedly stated that “black women intimidate her” to a former employee and would also refer to Meek Mill as a “black boy” in planning meetings. The accusations against the company and Khanna went on to state that 99% of the recent layoffs from the network were African-American. The network laid off 30% of their staff. In response, Diddy states all the claims are not accurate.
“Revolt is led by a woman of color who is expected to uphold the same standards that I hold for all of my companies,” Diddy said to TMZ. “After an extensive review led by outside counsel there were no findings of deliberate misconduct.”
Referring to the report as “absurd and offensive,” Diddy also shared the company is 67% ethnically diverse and over half of the senior leadership are women. Revolt’s layoffs occurred this past May and were cited to be due to a shift in content production and operation.
