A letter from disgraced venture capitalist Justin Caldbeck to one of his sexual assault victims, Niniane Wang, CEO and founder of Evertoon, has recently surfaced wherein Caldbeck threatened Wang with legal action should she refuse to cease and desist speaking about “a number of false statements” regarding the incident.
The letter, written by Kerr & Wagstaffe, LLP, was given to BuzzFeed by a source close to the case. Although the letter has recently surfaced this week, it dates back to July 27. It reads:
In the wake of the sexual harassment allegations against Justin Caldbeck, he has since released a public apology, wherein he promised to seek professional counseling for his behavior after stepping down from his position at Binary Capital.
Netizens were quick to collectively eye roll at the statement:
Justin Caldbeck, venture capitalist and co-founder of Binary Capital, has announced that he will be stepping down from his company indefinitely in the wake of the sexual harassment allegations he’s currently facing. He also has vowed to seek professional counseling for his indecent, inappropriate behavior towards women.
I’m incredibly sorry https://t.co/ezK2y8UKkw
