On Monday, Project Veritas lost over 80,000 followers on social media after it was announced company founder James O'Keefe was removed from the organization, which he founded in 2011, after the board placed him on paid leave earlier in February.
According to Social Blade, a social media analytics website, the live tally as of 4:30 pm showed Project Veritas had lost almost 80,000 followers on Twitter.
Since February 16, on YouTube, Project Veritas has lost over 10,000 followers.
A February 6 memo leaked from 16 Project Veritas employees detailed their problems with the news organization's founder and claimed he exhibited "cruel behavior."
"James has become a power drunk tyrant and he is exactly who he pontificates on who we should be exposing," wrote one of the employees.
Initial reporting on Monday from Neil McCabe of OAN claimed O'Keefe had resigned. Later, RC Maxwell from Project Veritas said O'Keefe was in fact removed from his role as CEO by the Board.
In an exclusive letter obtained by The Post Millennial Editor-at-Large Andy Ngo, O'Keefe asked the board to resign on Monday, which they refused.
"I was asked to be gone until the 20th-- it is now the 20th," wrote O'Keefe. "I asked the board to resign for their conduct-- they did not. So currently, I have no position at PV based on the board's actions. So, I'm announcing to you all that today on President's day — I'm packing up my personal effects from headquarters, and I'm intending to start anew."
Project Veritas donor Dianna Remmers came forward to refute claims and said the employee document misrepresented her interactions with O'Keefe.
"I've been made aware of allegations for Project Veritas through the news, a little bit on social media and whatnot," Remmers said. "And I realized actually that one of the allegations and grievances towards James is about a situation that involves me with James."
