The former political reporter at Axios was heavily criticised online for past tweets that included racist anti-Asian and homophobic statements. She apologised publicly about the statements last week, indicating her intention to still take on the role despite the backlash, but announced on Thursday that she will not take over the Condé Nast teen title.
“My past tweets have overshadowed the work I’ve done to highlight the people and issues that I care about — issues that Teen Vogue has worked tirelessly to share with the world — and so Conde Nast and I have decided to part ways,” wrote McCammond in a statement she shared on Twitter.
