Billie JD Porter on inappropriate behaviour at Vice


Journalist Billie Porter began working with media company Vice UK when she was just 16.

But in a recent blog post on Medium.com, she’s detailed alleged inappropriate behavior by senior colleagues. Vice staff have already been the subject of multiple harassment allegations.

The former CEO, Shane Smith has previously apologised, saying Vice had “failed…to create a safe workplace where women can feel respected.”

Cathy Newman spoke to Billie Porter and began by asking her to describe the culture at Vice when she began working there ten years ago.
