The New York Post recently announced that woke journalist Carlos Maza—the man who set off the Vox Adpocalypse and negatively affected the lives of many independent YouTube creators—is no longer working with Vox Media. This announcement used language to suggest that Maza’s dismissal was a result of being attacked by racists and homophobes.

The possibility that Maza’s poor quality of work might have instigated the dismissal was not raised for consideration.
