The CEO of QVC, the video-on-demand company owned by Disney, is stepping down after months of criticism for allegedly supporting a white supremacist group.QVC is the world’s biggest specialty video-streaming company, with about 5.5 billion videos streamed daily and more than 60 million people on its website.
The company said in a statement Monday that CEO Kevin Chen would be stepping down.
A spokesperson for the company did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment.
Chen said in the statement that QVC is “deeply committed to diversity, inclusion and inclusivity” and he had “full faith” in its leadership team.
“I am proud to be part of a company that is as committed to equality, diversity and inclusion as I am to a mission of diversity and inclusion,” he said.
