During October's New York Comic Con, Diana Pho was sexually and
racially harassed by Mike Babchik, host of the online webseries Man Banterand SiriusXM Radio producer for Mad Dog Radio. Pho garnered widespread
online attention upon speaking out
against her harassment online. Despite apologizes issued by representatives of New York Comic Con and Man
Banter, Babchik has remained silent.
In this open letter, Pho directs her own message to Babchik.
