Teen Vogue editor Alexi McCammond has resigned over racist, anti-Asian tweets she wrote as a teenager surfaced online

Teen Vogue’s new editor Alexi McCammond has resigned less than a month after taking the job over anti-Asian tweets she wrote as a teenager which surfaced online and cost Conde Nast a seven-figure ad campaign. 

McCammond’s resurfaced tweets, which have been widely shared online, include one in which she wrote: ‘Googling how to not wake up with swollen Asian eyes’.

Another now-deleted tweet read: ‘Give me a 2/10 on my chem problem, cross out all of my work and don’t explain what i did wrong… thanks a lot stupid Asian T.A. you’re great.’

They were written in 2011 and resurfaced after she was named as the new editor on March 5. 

It’s unclear if she ever started the job. 

She apologized and said she was committed to having ‘difficult conversations’ about race.

Conde Nast – which has a history of racism allegations – stood by her. 

The New York Times reported on Thursday that Anna Wintour knew about the tweets before offering McCammond the job and discussed them with leaders of color within the organization. 

Staffers were irate that she was allowed to keep her job after the tweets surfaced, and said it sent the wrong message during a time of increased attacks on American Asians but she stayed on.  They wrote an open letter demanding that she be replaced. 

Then, beauty store chain Ulta pulled a seven-figure ad campaign with Teen Vogue over the scandal. There were also talks among sales teams that it could cost the company even more in advertising revenues.  

In a Twitter statement on Thursday, McCammond said she and the company had decided to ‘part ways’. 

An internal memo at Conde Nast was also issued.

‘After speaking with Alexi this morning, we agreed that it was best to part ways, so as to not overshadow the important work happening at Teen Vogue,’ HR boss Stan Duncan said. 

McCammond’s resignation also comes after her boyfriend was fired from his role as  Deputy White House Secretary for threatening to ‘destroy’ a female reporter if they exposed their relationship.Before working at Vogue, McCammond was working as a political reporter at Axios.  

On Thursday, amid a swell of outrage over anti-Asian violence after a gunman killed six Asian women at three massage parlors in Georgia, she said: ‘Hey there: I’ve decided to part ways with Condé Nast.’ 

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 so tirelessly to share with the world – and so Conde Nast an I have decided to part ways.

‘I should not have tweeted what I did and I have taken full responsibility for that. 

McCammond is dating disgraced former Deputy White House Secretary TJ Ducklo who was fired after threatening to destroy a reporter if she exposed their relationship. Before working at Vogue, McCammond worked at Axios

‘I look at my work and growth in the years since, and have redoubled my commitment to growing in the years to come as both a person and as a professional,’ she said.  

McCammond issued a lengthy apology on March 11. 

‘What an awful introduction we’ve had to each other this week. 

‘This has been one of the hardest weeks of my life in large part because of the intense pain I know my words and my announcement have caused so many of you.

‘I’ve apologized for my past racist and homophobic tweets and will reiterate that there’s no excuse for perpetuating those awful stereotypes in any way,’ she said. 

The tweets were all written in 2011, when she was in high school.
