Diddy Stands By Revolt CEO Amid Racist Claim

Published

on

Diddy’s Revolt media company is underfire from a former staffer claiming that the company’s CEO, Roma Khanna is racist.

A Page Six article from Tuesday (July 3), reports on allegations made by a former staffer, who reportedly reached out to the Revolt board, “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.”

In a letter outlining the issues, the same employee claimed, “I’ve witnessed Roma say that black women intimidate her.” The woman also recalled Khanna referring to Meek Mill as a “black boy” in a negative manor during a conversation about the Philly rapper speaking at a Revolt conference about prison reform. She goes on to claim, “Roma let 30 percent of the Revolt staff go for restructuring, and 99 percent [of those] are African-American.”

Diddy has responded to the claims, calling them not factual. “This story is inaccurate,” he said in a statement. “We are a Black owned and operated network and we have a zero-tolerance policy for discrimination of any kind. 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 looked at me like an equal and we always been brothers from that day…that was real effective with me because, when you dealin’ with a star and you comin’ in as a nobody, it’s easy for the star to down look you or play you low, but for him to look at me even, that’s why we never said no to each other to this day because we always look at each other as brothers and we depend on each other and we need each other.”

6ix9ine Arrested By ATF On Federal Racketeering Charges

Published

on

6ix9ine and his former manager have reportedly been arrested on racketeering charges.

According to TMZ, the ATF arrested 6ix9ine Sunday night in NYC, and the agents also hauled in his ex-manager, Shottie, at the same time. Both are facing racketeering and firearms charges.

6ix9ine is currently on probation, stemming from an October 2015 guilty plea to the use of a child in a sexual performance. Sentencing in the case dragged on for years until, last month, a New York judge gave him four years of probation and required him to complete community service, refrain from gang affiliation, and avoid future arrests.

This will surely put him behind bars for some time.
