“The Executive Board of Content Creators Coalition is deeply troubled by reports of sexual misconduct by our executive director, Jeff Boxer. We convened an emergency board meeting today, and have accepted Mr. Boxer’s resignation,” said a statement from c3, in response to the blog posts by Rosy Nolan, Tessa Lena and Chelsea Crowell.

“C3 exists to advocate and champion fair treatment, empathy and respect for artists, and that advocacy extends to all human beings. We offer our most sincere apologies to the three women who came forward with their stories. We deeply regret their suffering. We should have done better in listening to them and championing them. We will do better.”

A separate apology from Boxer was also published, in which he claimed that “while I never intended to make anyone uncomfortable and believed I was acting professionally at all times, I recognise that was not the case.”

“To Rosy Nolan, Tessa Lena, and my former colleague Chelsea Crowell, I am deeply sorry for making you feel personally uncomfortable and professionally unappreciated.  I respect your choice to speak out, just as I would encourage any woman or man who has felt mistreated to step forward.”
