According to several staffers, Ryan announced at a company town hall that there will be layoffs at the paper early next year, reported Max Tani of Semafor.
"He apparently did not take questions during the town hall," Tani said.
As seen on video footage captured by a member of the town hall audience, the crowd became upset at their boss's announcement.
"What are you going to do to protect people's jobs? Are they going to be treated like the magazine staffers were?" one employee can be heard asking as Ryan began to make his exit while other personnel also attempted to get answers.
Last month, the Post ended their Sunday print magazine and laid off its employees, according to the Washingtonian.
"We will have more information as we move forward," the CEO replied.
As Ryan left the room, the crowd erupted in more questions and criticisms.
"You seem to be disrespecting–" another employee can be heard shouting before the video ends.
The news of the downsizing comes as the Post faces backlash for the characterization of journalists Bari Weiss and Matt Taibbi as "conservative."
Taibbi, who previously worked for Rolling Stone, and Weiss, who was an editor at The New York Times, have both shared many left-leaning views in the past, however, they both are now under fire from the left for their documentation of the "Twitter Files," the internal documents shared by Twitter owner Elon Musk showing the tech giant taking massive steps to suppress and censor conservatives and politically-inconvenient news, such as the Hunter Biden laptop story.
In a now-edited article, The Post labeled the two as "conservative journalists" for reporting on the “Twitter Files,” reports the Daily Caller.
"As head of trust and safety at Twitter, Roth was involved in many of the platform's decisions about what posts to remove and what accounts to suspend," WaPo wrote. "His communications with other Twitter officials have been posted in recent days as part of what Musk calls the Twitter Files, a series of tweets by conservative journalists Matt Taibbi and Bari Weiss."
Walter Kirn, Taibbi's "America This Week" co-host, called the label "badly inaccurate."
The article currently shows a version omitting the word "conservative."
