Close to 47,000 members of, the nation's largest online black civil rights organization, have signed a petition calling on Harris Publications to fire XXL Magazine editor Vanessa Satten. ColorOfChange is calling on Harris Publication to dismiss Satten because a staff member under her supervision published the [now infamous Too $hort video]( that encouraged young boys to "turn girls out" by pushing "her up against the wall." "I'd like to address the ongoing controversy surrounding the Too $hort video and try to set the record straight," XXL Magazine's Satten wrote in a statement published on last week. "As soon as I learned about the video, I had it taken down,"[ Satten went on to say.]( But ColorOfChange says that's not enough. "Satten has tried to excuse herself by saying that she didn't see the video before it posted. But she presides over a workplace culture that allowed such a grave misstep, and she has failed to respond appropriately as a chorus of voices calls her on it," [read an e-mail sent to members. ]( "Please join us in calling on Harris Publications President and CEO Stanley R. Harris to fire Vanessa Satten, XXL's Editor-in-Chief.
