Refinery 29 Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Refinery29 (R29) is an American digital media and entertainment website focused on young women owned by Vice Media. It was founded in 2005 by Justin Stefano, Philippe von Borries, Piera Gelardi, and Christene Barberich.

Refinery29 really sucks! It is reeling from claims of racism and toxic work culture. Employees say it's even worse behind the scenes. Ashley C. Ford, the former employee who said Barberich used to confuse her for another black woman, was one of the most prominent people who spoke out, saying in one tweet that she'd left Refinery29 after nine months because of a "toxic company culture where white women's egos ruled." She was moved to tweet, she told CNN Business afterward, by seeing a thread from another former employee, Ashley Alese Edwards.

"[W]hen I started reading that thread and started seeing some of the responses to it, the big thing that hit me was, 'Oh, you idiot. Leaving didn't make anything stop. ... You left and they kept doing this. They kept treating women like this. They kept treating black women like this,'" she said.
