Reddit Chief Ellen Pao Resigns in Wake of User Revolt

Ellen Pao has resigned as interim chief executive of Reddit, the popular but controversial website announced on Friday.
Pao, who became an international symbol for gender imbalance in Silicon Valley when she lost a landmark discrimination lawsuit, will be replaced by Steve Huffman, a co-founder of the site with executive chairman Alexis Ohanian.
A statement posted on Reddit by board member Sam Altman said Pao has stepped down “by mutual agreement”, even as she signalled “a different view” from fellow company brass.
