The Canadian news magazine that’s grown into a dominant online video company has suspended two top executives after a New York Times report on sexual misconduct at the digital media company.
Vice has suspend its president and chief digital officer as it investigates allegations against them.
The Times reported it found four settlements involving allegations of sexual harassment or defamation against Vice employees, including the president, after interviews with more than two dozen women who said they’d experienced or witnessed sexual misconduct.
Vice Media’s co-founders have apologized for the “boy’s club” culture.
The reports of sexual misconduct at Vice are part of a wave of allegations of bad behaviour in media, entertainment and other industries, as well as politics, that followed news articles detailing Harvey Weinstein’s decades of alleged rape and harassment this past fall.
