Reddit CEO Yishan Wong stepped down Thursday. In a blog post, investor Sam Altman said the departure was over a fight with the board about a new office.
That’s right: Wong didn’t get the office he wanted so he quit.
“To be clear, though, we didn’t ask or suggest that he resign — he decided to when we didn’t approve the new office plan,” Altman explained.
Whether this is actually what happened or just corporate nonsense is up for the debate.
