Current events surrounding Reddit's hiring of a questionable individual.
Reddit hired a woman from the UK who was "a Green Party spokesperson and a candidate for deputy leadership. But she was suspended in 2018 amid an inquiry involving her father David Challenor — who was convicted that year of raping and torturing a 10-year-old child. [The woman] had selected Challenor as her election agent after he had been arrested and charged with the crime in 2016. “On reflection, I can understand that it was unacceptable for me to appoint my dad as my election agent when he had been arrested. I can now understand the potential risks of that decision,” she wrote after the suspension."
A mod in /r/ukpolitics linked to a newspaper article about her, and was promptly banned from Reddit for doxxing a Reddit admin. Many subreddits went dark to protest this ban.
The fact that this woman is a trans woman has caused all the transphobic scum on the site to scurry out from under the wainscoting and start flinging poo.
Just an fyi - I added a CW to your title
Good idea, sorry I didn't think of it.
