BuzzFeed News has fired its White House correspondent after allegations of inappropriate comments to a colleague.
Adrian Carrasquillo was let go following an internal investigation, a representative told Business Insider on Wednesday.
“We are saddened by these circumstances, but we take these issues extremely seriously,” the representative said. “We’re committed to ensuring that BuzzFeed remains a place where everyone is treated respectfully by his or her peers.”
Last month, BuzzFeed News began investigating several of its staffers after their names appeared on a Google spreadsheet titled “S****y Media Men” that was being passed around media circles. It listed unverified allegations against men in the media and publishing industries. Carrasquillo’s name appeared on a version of the list seen by Business Insider.[give_form id=”79809″] [contentcards url=”http://www.businessinsider.com/buzzfeed-fires-white-house-correspondent-adrian-carrasquillo-following-harassment-claims-2017-12″ target=”_blank”]
