CEO Of Revolt Network Accused Of Racism, Diddy Comes To Her Defense

The CEO of Sean “Diddy” Combs’ network, Revolt, has been accused of racism by a former staffer. However, after an investigation, Combs says it’s just a big misunderstanding and she isn’t going anywhere.

Claims of Roma Khanna being a racist came to light after an ex-employee wrote a letter to the Revolt board. The letter claimed that Khanna explicitly admitted to being intimidated by Black women. The former employee also shared that Khanna was insensitive after she brought up Meek Mill to be included in the Revolt Music Conference to discuss prison reform. Khanna reportedly responded back to her saying,

“Maybe the conversation isn’t about prison reform, maybe it’s about how to stay out of jail, black boy.”

In addition to that, the letter also claimed that of the 30 percent Revolt staffers that were laid off, 99 percent of them were Black. Now, here’s what Diddy has to say about all of this.

Diddy shares with TMZ,

“This story is inaccurate. 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 adds, “Regarding the recent restructure, Revolt’s diversity remains unchanged. We are 67% ethnically diverse, with more than 60% of the senior leadership being women. Any suggestion that any company of mine negatively targets African Americans is absurd and offensive.”
