Hey, we work in media so it’s never fun to write about journalists being laid off en masse. But as Twitchy reported earlier Thursday, there were a lot of layoffs Wednesday at BuzzFeed, HuffPost, and Gannett.

BuzzFeed, for one, cut about 250 people from its staff:

And now we’ve learned that HuffPost Opinion — the entire section — has been cut.

Seriously, we hope Chloe Angyal lands on her feet soon, hopefully with someone who appreciates that Ph.D. in romantic comedies.

Honestly, in 2019, we’d have bet that the position of gender politics writer would be as safe as could be. We make fun of gender politics pieces all the time here and there never seems to be an end to them.

True fact: Andrew Breitbart was one of the founders of The Huffington Post. We’re pretty sure he wouldn’t recognize it.

OK, we laughed.

Once again, it might not sound like it, but best of luck in finding a fulfilling new job.

Wonder what’s trending over at HuffPost Opinion today?
