Huffington Post’s parent company Oath has launched an internal investigation into an editor’s history of anti-Semitic and homophobic tweets after a Daily Caller inquiry and article on the matter.

An Oath spokesperson told The Daily Caller, “This information was just brought to our attention. Oath has launched an internal investigation regarding the employee in question and will take appropriate steps based on the results of the investigation.”

TheDC’s investigation uncovered HuffPost’s front page editor Philip Lewis’ old tweets that made anti-Semitic jokes about the Holocaust and used homophobic slurs. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: HuffPost Editor Made Anti-Semitic Holocaust Jokes, Used Homophobic Slur, And Tweeted About Hating Cops)
