MIT Media Lab Director resigns

The director at Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Media Lab has resigned after becoming embroiled in scandal over the lab’s financial ties to mysterious multimillionaire and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

“After giving the matter a great deal of thought over the past several days and weeks, I think that it is best that I resign as Director of the Media Lab and as a Professor and employee of the Institute, effective immediately,” Ito wrote in an email to the university’s provost and president, which was first reported by the New York Times.

The Media Lab has been rocked by ties to Epstein, with the lab admitting in August that it received $800,000 in donations from the deceased financier. Ito has said he was deeply sorry for “bringing such a person into our network,” while also disclosing that he had accepted $1.2 million from Epstein for personal investments.
