Mixer responds after former employee Milan Lee shared that the company’s management had allegedly made racist comments and referred to partners as “slaves.”
On June 21, Milan Lee shared her experience working for Mixer on Twitter, claiming that he was pulled aside and told he was hired because he’s “street smart.” He also claimed that a manager referred to themselves as a “slave master” during a meeting, and saying that they “own” the Mixer partners and their content.
Our goal is to build a positive, welcoming, and inclusive team and community. To those sharing your stories; it's unacceptable that we did not provide that for you. We'll be vigilant in addressing this more diligently in the future.— Mixer (@WatchMixer) June 22, 2020
Thank you, Milan and to the entire community.
Mixer addressed Lee’s claims, reassuring their viewers and streamers that their goal is to build a “positive, welcoming, and inclusive team and community.” Lee not being provided that that atmosphere is unacceptable for Mixer. “We’ll be vigilant in addressing this more diligently in the future,” the company said.
Lee’s story prompted many streamers to boycott Microsoft’s platform, refusing to stream in support of Lee until the issue is resolved. Many called for the manager to be fired from the company.
I give Mixer one week. ONE WEEK! To get the piece of shits partnerships taken away (Cudi, Supa, Hollywood, etc.) and the asshole who thinks its okay to make a disgusting racist comment inside Mixer. If this is not addressed and dealt with, streams will be on twitch. Thank you.— TheDramaQueen (@DQueen226) June 22, 2020
Effective immediately, my Mixer streams are cancelled until further notice. A real change within the company is needed.— Enola Leone | 🌈 #PrideAlways (@thatenolaleone) June 22, 2020
I won't stream on a platform who's leaders or community team makes offensive remarks like this. This is NOT okay. I'm done.
