A little over a month after two women accused Mike Germano, Vice Media’s chief digital officer, of sexual harassment, he has left the company.

In late December, the New York Times outlined Vice’s culture of sexual harassment, describing it as “degrading and uncomfortable for women.” Of the two dozen women who spoke to the Times, two leveled sexual harassment allegations against Germano, including sexual comments and unwanted touching. In 2012, Germano told one employee that he initially didn’t want to hire her because he wanted to have sex with her. In 2014, he reportedly pulled a woman onto his lap.

Following the report, Germano, along with Vice president Andrew Creighton, was suspended. Vice later announced that Germano would not be returning to the company after an internal investigation. The Times reports that Vice is still “reviewing the facts” of Creighton’s case.

The Times’s story came after the Daily Beast reported in November on the “toxic” culture of sexual harassment at Vice. As a result of the Daily Beast story, Vice fired three employees in December, after completing internal investigations. Germano has the dubious distinction of becoming the fourth employee fired after sexual harassment allegations were made public.

Quit thinking with your dicks, you assholes.

Let’s break it down: Imagine all members of the opposite sex you work with as your mom. Would you say this shit to your mom or try to do these things with your mom? Would you like others to try that shit on your mom if she was working there?

If the answer is ‘no’....QUIT FUCKING DOING IT.

If the answer is ‘yes’ and it still is gross....therapy, Oedipus.
