Washington DC, [USA] July 04 (ANI): Hollywood rapper Diddy is standing by an employee at his Revolt Television Network since a former staffer of this organisation alleged her of having a racially abusive behaviour.
Roma Khanna, CEO of Revolt Television Network happens to be the woman in question for whom Diddy is taking a stand.
According to TMZ, a letter sent to the Revolt board by an ex-employee claimed that Khanna openly admitted of being intimidated by black women.
The ex-employee who happens to be a woman further alleged that Khanna responded with a racist comment during a conversation about Hollywood rapper Meek Mill's opinion on prison reform, and called him a "black boy".
The letter further claimed that Khanna sacked 30 percent of the Revolt employees, where the majority of the workforce belongs to the African-American community.
In response to the letter, Diddy said that the story is inaccurate and that no discrimination whatsoever is welcomed at the organisation.
"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," TMZ quoted Diddy as saying.
With regard to the recent restructure of his organisation is concerned, Diddy confirmed that the diversity of the workforce will remain 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," he added.(ANI)
