In the wake of Jackson’s AMA, Reddit fires AMA admin Victoria Taylor. Other moderators of the subreddit feel the impact of her removal and close the subreddit off to the public Reddit population. Other large subreddits, such as /r/books, /r/science, /r/music, also close their subreddits in apparent protest to her removal. AMA moderator /u/Karmanaut:
Today, we learned that Victoria was unexpectedly let go from her position with Reddt. We all had the rug ripped out from under us and feel betrayed.
