Stassi Schroeder Deletes Podcast Episode After Backlash to Her #MeToo Comments

Stassi Schroeder is not happy with the negative reaction to the most recent episode of her podcast, which drew severe backlash and saw several advertisers drop out.

The now-deleted episode of “Straight Up with Stassi” drew backlash from fans on Twitter shortly after it was posted (see tweets below). The episode was titled “Are we on a male witch hunt?”

Schroeder defended the episode on Twitter, which she later deleted, writing, “Hold up. There is ZERO bashing, & I repeat myself 3726 times how I feel the whole media frenzy has taken away from the victims who were truly assaulted. You may be misinterpreting my point, because we had the best intentions w/ this episode.”

Three advertisers tweeted they were pulling their sponsorship of the show — Rent the Runway, Simple Contacts, and Framebridge. Each of them posted on Twitter voicing their displeasure with what was said on the podcast.

Schroeder has said she has recorded a follow-up podcast.
