After sitting on nearly a week of intense backlash from Reddit users over a controversial hire, the website has finally announced their firing of admin Aimee Challenor. Challenor’s past and current associations are filled with pedophiles. She is a disgraced UK politician who was kicked out of several political parties, including the Green Party due to her appointment of her father, David Challenor as her campaign manager.
At the time of Challenor hiring her father, he was out on bail for raping and torturing a 10 year-old girl. He had also been found guilty of 20 other crimes. Aimee lived with him at the time he committed many of them.
Aimee then went on to marry Nathaniel Knight who has posted to social media that he fantasizes about child sex and mind-control of children to engage with adults. His disturbing post can be read below:
Reddit’s response to the massive wave of controversy found on many of its subreddits was to begin banning and censoring anyone who even mentioned Challenor’s name. After nearly a week of shutting down popular subreddits such as r/GenderCritical, they finally fired Challenor once the media took notice. Many are outraged that a suspected pedophile would be put in a position of power on a website that millions of young people use every day.
It is my opinion that Challenor was the result of a diversity hire. It is incredibly unlikely that she would have been hired if Reddit had done even the slightest amount of research into her past. All of her disturbing associations and failures were public information prior to her hiring at Reddit in 2020. It’s outrageous that there appears to be a complete lack of vetting over at Reddit, and that being transgender was enough to place someone on their staff.
I chronicle all of Aimee’s past and the controversy on Reddit in my new Youtube video below.
