Reddit  users are still revolting following an admission by company CEO Steve Huffman that he edited some posts to make it appear users were angry with /r/The_Donald mods rather than himself. Huffman, who goes by the Reddit handle /u/spez, admitted to editing the posts after being called out by users, though he didn’t exactly apologize, instead excusing it as the result of a ‘long week’ and hurt feelings.
In my opinion there is no excuse for doing something like that.  I heard that the subject he was modifying was “Pizzagate”   It is a very controversial topic, and players are the Washington Elite. So it is bound to do nothing but cause trouble.  I think more will come out about this in days to come.

Huffman then acknowledged his actions in a post here on Wednesday (text below):

Hey Everyone,

Yep. I messed with the “f**k 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. F**k u/spez.
