Sucks to be you.

Teen Vogue staffers forced the liberal magazine’s incoming
editor to walk away from the gig because they were offended by
things she tweeted as a teenager, but the same employees didn’t
seem bothered by sponsored content from the Saudi Arabian
government.

Alexi McCammond's tenure as editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue ended
before it began on Thursday when she parted ways with the outlet
after an internal uproar over decade-old tweets, for which she
previously apologized in 2019. Staffers at the Condé Nast
publication were furious over the tweets, while critics labeled
the debacle the latest example of cancel culture.

STAFFERS' REVOLT OVER DECADE-OLD TWEETS

However, earlier this month Teen Vogue published sponsored
content from the Saudi Arabian government, promoting it as a fun
holiday destination where "citizens and visitors alike can have
peace of mind." The piece titled, "Why Saudi Should Land on
Every Culture Lover’s Radar," fawned over the nation that
doesn’t particularly align with Teen Vogue’s values.

Under current law, Saudi women require a male guardian’s
approval to marry, be released from prison, or obtain certain
sexual and reproductive health care. Also, men can still file
cases against their daughters, wives, or female relatives for
"disobedience," which can lead to their forcible return to their
male guardian’s home or imprisonment.

Women are often told they belong in the home in Saudi Arabia,
and they make up just 16 percent of the workforce, according to
World Bank.

TheWrap, a Hollywood trade publication, reported that Teen Vogue
chalked the sponsored content up to an "error" and removed it
from the liberal website. Teen Vogue featured the pro-Saudi
content on its homepage before it was removed, TheWrap reported,
citing "an individual with knowledge of the matter."

Journalist Josh Barro captured Teen Vogue’s homepage before the
article was removed.


The story remains up on Teen Vogue’s sister publication, fellow
Condé Nast magazine Traveler.

MEDIA MEMBERS OUTRAGED AFTER CANCEL CULTURE COMES FOR ALEXI
MCCAMMOND: 'WHERE THE HELL ARE WE AS AN INDUSTRY'

The propaganda disguised as an article appeared less than two
weeks after U.S. intelligence agencies released a report
concluding that Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince approved the
operation to "capture or kill" Washington Post journalist Jamal
Khashoggi in 2018.

However, there didn’t appear to be any public outcry from the
Teen Vogue staffers who forced out McCammond over tweets she
sent as a teenager, which included hoping she didn't wake up
with "Asian" eyes and using the term "homo."

It's been a dramatic year for the young journalist, who also saw
her relationship with former Biden White House communications
staffer T.J. Ducklo go public. McCammond continued to cover
President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris for Axios, in
spite of disclosing her romance with Ducklo to the outlet.

Daily Caller reporter Shelby Talcott appeared baffled by the
selective outrage.

"Just so I’m clear: Teen Vogue staff had no issue w/ propaganda
from Saudi Arabia that appeared in 'error' on the homepage &
there was no outcry over McCammond’s relationship w/ an official
on the campaign she covered. This is over tweets from HS that
she apologized for," Talcott tweeted. "Got it."

Condé Nast did not immediately respond to a series of questions,
including whether staffers objected to the paid content
internally and why it is still allowed on Traveler if its sister
magazine published it accidentally.
