Viral Huffington Post Editor's Photo of 'Diverse' Meeting Immediately Backfires
Huffington Post executive editor Liz Heron posted a photo to Twitter Friday, giving a behind-the-scenes look at an editors meeting.
The photo, which showed a table full of mostly white women, was evidently meant to show workplace diversity.
But Heron might not have thought things through, as there was an immediate backlash to the lack of males or people of color on the Huffington Post editorial staff.

Check out some of the hilariously brutal responses below and in the clip above, watch the Red Eye crew's take.
.@lheron I was told that inferring gender identity based on physical characteristics was the height of bigotry, intolerance. How dare you.

You mean other than the lack of diversity?
No, not really. https://t.co/CVwjSdFKYm

I have a feeling she's not getting the responses she hoped she would get.
