Philadelphia Magazine Editor Ousted After Presenting Photo of Testicular Cyst to Female Staffer

By

Philly mag editor (and onetime aspiring congressman) Larry Platt is well known around the office for his inappropriate jokes with staffers (Philly Gossip compared him to Michael Scott from The Office). But it was when he presented a "framed photo of a cyst removed from his testicle" as a parting gift to a woman who was leaving the magazine that tipped magazine brass over the edge, spurring them not to renew his contract. Staffer Tom McGrath will be interim editor. Meanwhile, we have officially requested a photo of said cyst. Hopefully it is not shaped like an ear. [Philly.com]
