Amid fresh charges of plagiarism, Time magazine’s website changed the bio of Fareed Zakaria on Tuesday to reflect that the journalist no longer works there.

The magazine updated the bio after TPM published a post on allegations of plagiarism against Zakaria that surfaced Tuesday from anonymous Twitter users @blippoblappo and @crushingbort. The TPM post noted that Time’s website still showed Zakaria as a contributor.

Time’s vice president of communications Daniel Kile notified TPM of the change by email.

“In regards to the bio you mentioned on Time.com, it has since been updated to accurately reflect Zakaria’s tenure at Time Inc.,” he said.

Previously, the bio had read: “Fareed Zakaria joined TIME in October 2010 as editor-at-large. He writes a regular column in the magazine and is a contributor to TIME.com.”

Zakaria’s author page now reads: “Fareed Zakaria was an editor-at-large for TIME from October 2010 to March 2014.”
