Not sure how anyone thought this was okay.
Some XXL staffers posted a video of rapper Too $hort advising young boys to sexually assault young girls. Naturally this stirred a firestorm that played out on Facebook and Twitter. A petition was started calling for the firing of the magazine’s editor-in-chief Vanessa Satten.
Satten has since apologized and released a statement airing her disappointment and saying that she didn’t know of the video’s contents before it was posted.
“I do not see all content before it goes live. When I saw this video, I was truly offended and thought it crossed the line. I had it taken down immediately. I am disappointed that an employee decided to post it and I am putting internal procedures in place to make sure content like this does not go on the site. The video goes against my value system and represents poor judgment on behalf of the individual who posted it.”
