HX Staffer Sacked, Replaced By Founder’s BF

There’s some hiring, firing drama over at New York fag rag HX. And this time there’s a tinge of nepotism.

A staffer informs us that mag founder Matthew Bank today sacked designer John Agnesini, the man who’s suing Subway for that whole knife-in-sandwich scandal.

While it’s not unusual for HX to off staffers, the Agnesini firing smells fishier than the rest. You see, rather than hiring a run of the mill designer, Bank instead chose his boyfriend, Peter Hemmel, who recently lost his design director gig over at Glamour.

Himmel, however, will allegedly only occupy the slot for a month.

Disclosure: our editor once worked for HX. And, no, he wasn’t fired.
