The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza is the latest entrant on the “shitty men in media” list to be accused of sexual misconduct, giving further credit to the list’s veracity.
The Daily Beast quotes The New Yorker as stating that they have “learned that Ryan Lizza engaged in what we believe was improper sexual conduct.”
“We have reviewed the matter and, as a result, have severed ties with Lizza,” the outlet’s statement reportedly continues. “Due to a request for privacy, we are not commenting further.”
In a statement to BuzzFeed, Lizza is quoted as stating, “I am dismayed that The New Yorker has decided to characterize a respectful relationship with a woman I dated as somehow inappropriate.”
The “shitty men in media list” had Lizza pegged for inappropriate direct messages to women.
Lizza is now the seventh man on the list, which was first discussed by Cernovich Media in late October.
