Ghomeshi essay costs job

An editor at the New York Review of Books has parted ways with the prestigious literary publication amid controversy over his decision to publish a personal essay by disgraced former radio host Jian Ghomeshi.

A publicist for the magazine confirmed that Ian Buruma is no longer an editor at the publication.

It's unclear whether Buruma's departure is related to his decision to publish the piece, which sparked online backlash from those who argued Ghomeshi shouldn't have been given such a prestigious platform.

Ghomeshi was acquitted in March 2016 of four counts of sexual assault and one count of choking involving three complainants. In May 2016, he apologized to a fourth complainant and signed a peace bond that saw another count of sexual assault withdrawn.

More coming.
