Reddit CEO Steve Huffman, aka "spez,"
has admitted to editing posts on a subreddit dedicated to President-Elect Donald Trump after "fake news" claims on a subreddit tied Hillary Clinton and John Podesta to an alleged child abuse ring. Huffman admitted to editing the posts after users in /r/The_Donald
verbally abused him after he shut down another subreddit, /r/Pizzagate, which was dedicated to the "investigation" of the Democratic contender's alleged child abuse ring. Most of the users on /r/Pizzagate were also active on /r/The_Donald. Yesterday Huffman posted on Reddit, "Hey Everyone, Yep. I messed with the “fuck u/spez ” comments, replacing "spez" with r/the_donald mods for about an hour. It’s been a long week here trying to unwind the r/pizzagate stuff. As much as we try to maintain a good relationship with you all, it does get old getting called a pedophile constantly. As the CEO, I shouldn’t play such games, and it’s all fixed now. Our community team is pretty pissed at me, so I most assuredly won’t do this again." Following Huffman's confession of editing posts that weren't his, Redditors began to churn out memes about free speech and censorship. Formally, Reddit had been known as a bastion of free internet speech. Click on to see the memes about spez/Huffman and to learn more about "pizzagate."
