Summary (IA Generated)

Snap said it has concluded an investigation into reports of racially insensitive incidents.

In June, former Snap employees spoke out on Twitter and gave their account to Mashable of what they claim was a racially biased culture on the content curation team at Snapchat between 2015-2018.

‘We recently concluded our investigation into allegations of potential racial bias raised by former employees from our content team,’ the company said in a statement.

Additionally, one manager that former employees said was at the center of the racially biased incidents has now left Snap.

One former Snap employee claimed that the manager said a curated story was ‘too Black-heavy.

The managers involved in the 2015-2018 incidents were still at Snap at the time of Mashable’s reporting in June.

Snap did not comment on those reports at the time.
