Deposed Vice Co-founder Might Lose Advertising Job Over Transphobic Blog Post

By

Once again, Vice co-founder and Fox News contributor Gavin McInnes has managed to drum up some negative attention for himself. This time, he did it by publishing a piece on Thought Catalog called "Transphobia Is Perfectly Natural," which was somehow even more vile and hateful than you'd expect it to be. On Friday afternoon, a representative for Rooster (the ad agency McInnes co-founded after parting ways with Vice) issued a statement: "Gavin's views are his own and do not represent those of the company or its members. We are extremely disappointed with his actions and have asked that he take a leave of absence while we determine the most appropriate course of action." McInnes has yet to comment, but he'll probably have something profanity-laden to say soon enough.
