THE New York Times has published a scathing report on the prevalence of sexual harassment at VICE, once a fringe Canadian magazine that is now a nearly $6 billion global media company.

The investigation by the NYT took nearly four months and uncovered four settlements involving allegations of sexual harassments or defamation against its employees.

VICE is known for its boundary-pushing, close-to-the-bone cultural expeditions, however, the report details that that may have been a large contributing factor in creating a workplace that was degrading and uncomfortable for women.

The piece, which can be read here, covers in detail several accounts of first-hand sexual harassment or witnessed misconduct.

This comes after VICE fired three employees amid sexual harassment complaints recently.

In related news, Google is under investigation for its extreme gender pay gap.
