The two FHM writers who sparked a social media furore earlier this week have been fired.
FHM released an official statement on their website today, saying: “FHM would like to announce that, following a disciplinary hearing held on Friday July 19 2013, presided over by an independent chairperson, former FHM employees Maxim Barashenkov and Montle Moorosi have been dismissed with immediate effect.”
The two men came under fire on Tuesday after they made harsh comments about correctional rape on their personal Facebook pages.
Soon after the incident took place, both men were suspended from the magazine followed by a statement from FHM editor, Brendan Cooper, in which he said: “FHM was horrified to learn of the incredibly offensive comments made by two of our staff members on their private Facebook pages.
“These comments in no way reflect FHM’s values. The opinions expressed are hurtful and deeply offensive and are entirely unacceptable to FHM’s management.”
