Signatures to Remove Ellen Pao as CEO of Reddit Eclipses 73,000

A petition calling for Ellen Pao to resign as the CEO of Reddit has surged in the last 36 hours and now has over 73,000 signatures.

The spike in signers comes after Reddit abruptly fired one of its most popular administrators, known as "Victoria." This led to a large number of subreddits going private, including several default subreddits, which have over 8,000,000 subscribers each.

Pao has been embroiled in controversy on the popular news aggregation site after she stated that Reddit was not a vehicle for free speech and after banning a subreddit with over 100,000 subscribers.

At the time of this article, the petition was getting more than 10 signatures a minute in the middle of the night in the United States.

Update: The petition is now on the cusp of 100,000, making it one of the largest petitions on Change.org ever.

  2. She is simply underqualified and has no business in this arena. She would be an OK manager at a retail or restaurant.

    1. Spot on. It's nothing personal against her, she's simply incapable of running a website of this size.

  4. She was fired from her previous job for incompetence and for intentionally impeding the advancement of other more qualified women under her. She gave poor performance reviews to any woman she perceived as a threat. Then when called out on it filed a discrimination suit against her employer that she lost. She seems to be continuing her queen bee attitude since taking over as interim ceo at reddit. HOW do people like this manage to land jobs as CEO at a company she knows absolutely nothing about.

    1. It's called the Machiavellian personality trait. Sabotaging other people with social adroitness and manipulation for their own benefit. These people also tend to be calculative with decision making but low emotional control and intelligence will out her true nature eventually.

  5. The hivemind loves to hate on her... kn0thing has taken responsibility for the sub blackout, not sure what her involvement with it is, but the lack of information is really bad.

    1. Responsibility but not accountability. He commented in one thread about 'enjoying popcorn' while watching the drama explode. The attitude of the admins reeks, and as the saying goes, 'the fish rots from the head'.

  6. she's also reported to have fired reddit employee 'dacvak' in his now deleted reddit AMA weeks before he was finally supposed to have finally recovered enough from leukemia for his condition after having been assured for years, and by Ellen pao and the previous CEO that his position would remain open. dacvak claims she would repeatedly agree to him retaining his position but consistently change her mind until firing him for good.
