UPDATE– For the record, Reddit and Ohanian took $300 million from China last year.
Alexis Ohanian, founder of Reddit, took $300m of Communist Chinese Tencent cash a year ago. Yesterday he stepped down from the Board and told them to replace him with a black person. The Reddit Board then announced a crackdown on “hate” across the site.
Nothing to see here. https://t.co/QMxq6hY5hW
