An editor who announced his resignation from Gawker Media on Monday apparently paid for a $546 meal with a company credit card just before news of his departure broke.
Departing executive editor Tommy Craggs appeared to post a photo to Instagram showing the hefty bill a little before Gawker announced news of his resignation.
The photo, which clearly displayed an American Express credit card with Craggs’ name and Gawker Media LLC, showed a charge of $546.85 check at Balthazar, a New York restaurant. The payment included a $150 tip.
Craggs and Gawker editor-in-chief Max Read announced Monday that they were resigning from the company after an article about a failed gay rendezvous by a Condé Nast media executive was removed from the site. The removal last week followed major backlash throughout media circles.
