Reddit’s Trump trolls are freaking out-and they’re right


Trump trolls on Reddit want the site’s CEO to quit over his response to a bizarre sex scandal called #Pizzagate. Crazily enough, they might be right.

If you haven’t heard, #Pizzagate is the hashtag used by trolls spreading the unhinged, bogus claim that Hillary Clinton was involved in a child sex ring running out of a Washington, D.C. pizza parlor. Several employees of that pizza parlor received death threats as a result. It’s exactly the sort of steaming pile of trash that Reddit’s uniquely positioned to cultivate-it’s just surprising it took so long to get here.
