The CEO of Sean “Diddy” Combs network, Revolt, has been accused of racism by a former staffer. However, after an investigation, Combs says it’s just a big misunderstanding and Roma Khanna isn’t going anywhere.

The ex-employee wrote to Revolt’s board “from a place of genuine concern on behalf of myself, as a young, educated black woman, for the people currently employed at Revolt who are fearful of losing their jobs, and in an attempt to preserve the reputation and perception of this company.”

In a bombshell letter, she alleged, “I’ve witnessed Roma say that black women intimidate her,” and that at a May brainstorming session for the Revolt Music Conference, when it was suggested that rapper Meek Mill host a talk on prison reform, “Roma responded, ‘Maybe the conversation isn’t about prison reform, maybe it’s about how to stay out of jail, black boy.’ ”

The memo adds, “In my own discomfort, I spoke up, saying that her comment was not only insulting but would also be disrespectful to Meek as he’s not a ‘boy’ . . . She then proceeded to propose . . . ‘Maybe that’s it . . . Maybe it’s a conversation on how not to be black.’ ”

In addition to that, the letter also claimed that of the 30 percent Revolt staffers that were laid off, 99 percent of them were Black. Now, here’s what Diddy has to say about all of this.

Diddy shares with TMZ,

“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.”

First of all Revolt isn’t as black owned like how people really think it is, it’s not 100% black owned. The other co-founder of Revolt is Andy Schuon is white and without him, Revolt might have never existed. Also the board of the company is all white besides Diddy.

He adds, “Regarding the recent restructure, Revolt’s diversity remains 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.”

Revolt is pretty much a regular corporate office in America. You’ll have people that have no idea about culture calling the shots. I wouldn’t be shocked if the CEO said these words. She looks like a person who wouldn’t understand black culture or have any sympathy for black people when it comes to prison reform.
