Razorcake writer Chris Pepus passes away

Posted July 31, 2015, 11:08 a.m.

Razorcake writer Chris Pepus tragically passed away in early June after taking his own life. Pepus was best known for advocating for social and economic justice through his writing, and more recently left his job as an film archivist when he discovered that the university he was working for was "complicit in class bias for rich legacy students while cooking the books to outwardly appear more diverse", according to Razorcake. 

Chris wrote extensively about the social issues that he saw as being widespread, both through his articles on Razorcake and on his own blog Against Class Bigotry. Razorcake have published an in memoriam collection of Chris's contributions to the site here. Chris was previously an interviewee for SPB's 1QI.
