“For ten years, I created a massive following giving people the opportunity to voice and submit as a third party,” the 37-year-old blogger king told Radar of his original vision. “It wasn’t until I watched Melania Trump’s speech and her stance on cyberbullying [that I had a realization].

Now, Richie is making big changes with his business.
“My website was built on humor but it guided down a path of hate,” he said. “That’s not me or how I want my legacy to end. My passion has always been to break stories that shift our culture for the better i.e. Anthony Weiner. My intention was never to have people bully one another.”
“I truly believe if Melania Trump can change me, we can all be better,” Richie added. “I’m committed to making TheDirty.com a fiber of mainstream media and no longer an institution of cyberbullying.”
