Sean “Diddy” Combs, the founder of Revolt, has decided to step down as chairman of the media company. This decision comes in the wake of a series of sexual assault lawsuits filed against the music mogul.
Since its inception in 2013, Revolt has been closely associated with Combs, who has been instrumental in shaping the company’s vision and direction. The allegations of sexual assault against Combs have had a profound impact on Revolt. Journalist Dawn Montgomery, a host on Revolt’s Monuments to Me podcast, announced her decision not to renew her contract with the company, citing her inability to be part of a show that uplifts black women while Combs leads the company.
The Future of Revolt Despite Combs stepping down, Revolt continues to operate, focusing on its mission to provide a platform for black creatives. The company’s leadership has yet to comment on the allegations against Combs or the future direction of the company.
