image for Almost Everyone at CollegeHumor Lost Their Jobs Today

Multiple sources have confirmed to Vulture that CollegeHumor was hit with a big round of layoffs today, which a rep for its parent company, IAC, has confirmed.

IAC, our parent company, has made the difficult decision to no longer finance us.

Today, 100+ brilliant people lost their jobs, some of whom are my dear, dear friends.

The twist, however, is that IAC has agreed to let me run with the company myself.

We have six months’ worth of content still to release: Dimension 20, Um, Game Changer, Breaking News, and more.

In these six months, I hope to be able to save Dropout, CollegeHumor, Drawfee, Dorkly, and many of our shows.

I will, however, do my very best to stay true to the talent, shows, fans, and principles that got us where we are today. »

"I join Canadians across the country who are shocked and saddened to see reports that a plane crash outside of Tehran, Iran, has claimed the lives of 176 people, including 63 Canadians," Mr Trudeau said. »

Prime Minister Scott Morrison was corrected by locals on Kangaroo Island on Wednesday after telling them he was thankful nobody died.

Standing in a group and speaking quietly, Morrison told residents of the fire-ravaged island: "Well thankfully, we've had no loss of life".

Firefighter organisations have called for a federal royal commission into Australia's bushfires, days after Mr Morrison said he'd consider one. »
