Co-Founder Gavin McInnes Finally Leaves 'Vice'

Vice co-founder and resident badboy mascot Gavin McInnes is, finally, officially, OUT at Vice. And VBS (Vice's MTV-partnered online video site) and even Dos & Don'ts, the last vestige of the magazine and brand his suddenly grownup colleagues still allowed him to helm. The news shouldn't surprise anyone who's read about Vice's new money and newer social consciousness. McInnes broke the news himself earlier today in an email to friends. "It's a long story but we've all agreed to leave it at 'creative differences,' so please don't ask me about it." Like Craig Kilborn taking 5 Questions to CBS, Gavin will soldier on with his photo mockery at streetcarnage.com. McInnes promises other projects soon, to be announced on his site "as they blossom into fruition like a hundred humid vaginas in the presence of God's boner." That's the kind of '90s retro edgy ANSWER Me! ripoff tone we miss from the new, "child soldiers are so sad" Vice. Full email after the jump. [Previously]

Dear children of my corn,


I no longer have anything to do with Vice or VBS or DOs & DON'Ts or any of that. It's a long story but we've all agreed to leave it at "creative differences," so please don't ask me about it.


I'm going to continue to make fun of people's pants and offend as many of you as possible, but I'll be doing it at streetcarnage.com, a new company I started with Big Pinky.


There's a ton of other projects in the works, including books, a movie, comics, TV shit, etc and I'll announce them on the site as they blossom into fruition like a hundred humid vaginas in the presence of God's boner.


My new email is gavin@streetcarnage.com.
