  • Riddle me this Conde Nast

    If you are a such a smart company that DOESN’T hire incompetent people simply because they are wealthy, white, and have connections within the company… Why, pray tell, are you acting like a fool?

    Is there a reason Mr. Delany is not fired? Is it possibly, just possibly, because if you fire ONE problematic, incompetent, wealthy, white man with connections in the company it will set a precedent to fire ALL the problematic, incompetent, wealthy, white people you hired because of their connections within the company and aforementioned qualities instead of hiring them for their skill?

    Why exactly did Adam Rapoport and Matt Duckor get to RESIGN instead of being fired after being called out for racist, homophobic, and sexist behavior? Do you want to hire them to another branch under Conde Nast’s umbrella perhaps? Or is it because you feel bad for them and firing them would be too harsh? Maybe they were just such good employees that you don’t want them to say they were fired for disgusting behavior when applying for another job? How sweet!

    Why is it that Amanda Shapiro and Oren Katzeff are still in positions of power? Why is it the people most responsible for the toxicity at BA and those being criticized the most, are not actually facing consequences? Why is it that Mr. Katzeff thinks that publicly suspending Hunzi will work to silence employees when fans can see directly through it? Why is it that Delany’s suspension happened quietly so that fans might forget about it? Do they think their smart elite brains are just so clever we don’t see what’s in front of us, that their employees aren’t aware of it, that they don’t have fans that will support them like they do the white hosts?

    You aren’t slick assholes. Everyone can see right through it and you’re just making it worse for yourself. Maybe hire PR or something since you are so adamant about not changing the toxic work environment by removing the racist, homophobic, and sexist executives.

  • to anyone that is interested, I got a reply from the relevant Bon Appetit customer service emails that I contacted about pay for BIPOC and Hunzi’s suspension .

    all it was that they are forwarding my inquiry to the appropriate department for handling.

    which seems like it’s probably going to get ignored in the long run but I will update if I hear anything else from them

  • Lmao what kind of worms are wiggling around in Conde Nast/BA exec’s brains that made them think that suspending Hunzi was a good idea? Seriously, people have a greater love for that man than quite a few of the ppl he films… especially now that everyone got exposed… like how fucking stupid are these people…

    If they wanted things to go over well, and maintain some of their image they would have:

    1. Given all their non-white workers a contract that provides salaries that reflect the actual work they are asked to do
    2. Given Sohla, Priya, Christina, Rick, and everyone that did a video backpay and a public apology
    3. Provided pay for people that were taken advantage of by the company and ended up leaving, plus an apology (Hawa Hassan and others)
    4. Given everyone reasonable pay and provide back pay to the people that were working overtime and never got paid for it
    5. Provided a statement and proof of implementing a new policy regarding overtime (aka not making ppl work overtime without pay or working overtime at all)
    6. Provided a statement and a plan about increasing diversity at the company (eventually provide an update a couple months down the road)
    7. Fired Alex Delany and Amanda Shapiro and Oren Katzeff (why do they still have jobs???)
    8. Not hired a union busting law firm (Proskauer) 
    9. Reinstated the people of color they laid off 
    10. Not suspended someone who has been publicly critical of them 

    And these are just the first 10 things that came to my head and half of them would require little effort (aka money) on the company’s part (5,6,7,8,10)

  • anyway while we’re all pissed off at conde nast (y’know, again), can we talk about how fucked it is that their lgbtqia+ focused publication is literally called ‘them’, even despite the pleas of the community to change it when they announced its launch because it’s completely othering and continues to make it acceptable to create divides around and within the lgbtqia+ community

  • I think the biggest thing coming out of the bon appetit/conde naste situation is; Celebrities cannot be your safe space. They will disappoint you, they will make mistakes. some will be racist and homophobic on a major scale and not apologize. Your safe space cannot be in a person that you share a parasocial relationship with because there is every possibility that the persona they share with the world is not the whole picture. You will eventually be disappointed by those you give your safety to when they have no way of knowing what responsibility you’ve given them. Your safety does not exist in the hands of online celebrities.

  • Sohla deserves not just a raise, she deserves to be in charge. She’s showing incredible leadership abilities. I’m not one for hierarchy, but give her the whole damn conde nast company.

  • what makes me so fucking angry is that i knew what i was seeing i fucking saw and knew how little screen time every poc staff got. i was so uncomfortable when rapoport confused priya with sohla and I still loved them, brushing past all the uncomfortable sexist racist jabs now and then because i thought i was watching a group of friends who supported each other and ignited my love for food. i was fucking wrong. hurts to know a platform, a group of people i came to love and admire were not exempt from this issue of prejudice either. and it hurts even more to think that all this time watching kitchen talks or gourmet makes or it’s alive that people are not getting paid, that they are constantly undervalued. i feel disillusioned. fuck this shit

  • i’m sorry i just can’t watch bon appetit anymore not until they somehow manage to make huge changes which considering how seemingly deeply entrenched racial prejudice is in the system and the culture i doubt BA can really return to its former illusion of glory. until then i will continue supporting POC staffers and ex-staffers. i cannot bring myself to watch videos knowing they are produced by racists or at least the complicit, i just can’t support their content anymore and im not sure if I ever will again… it’s just so disappointing because BA was one of the things that kept me through this train wreck of a year and now what i thought to be wholesome and reassuring is just shit. i just cannot see any of the videos or any of the complicit non-white staffers the same anymore. it always felt like something was bubbling under the surface but i brushed it off for cheery kitchen talks, gourmet makes, the likes of it, admiring these great personalities and thinking maybe someday i could work in a place like that. feels like a punch to the gut.
