Devin Faraci is no longer employed by the Alamo Drafthouse, Drafthouse owner Tim League said in a letter that was sent to Drafthouse employees Wednesday evening and posted on his Facebook page.

Tim League's letter to his employees.

Hello everyone, 

Faraci’s resignation comes after it came to light earlier this week that Faraci has been writing for the Drafthouse for some time. 

Several promotional blurbs with Faraci’s byline appeared on the Fantastic Fest website and the Internet took notice. Those blurbs were removed and replaced with ones by a different author Wednesday.

In addition, current Birth.Movies.Death editor Meredith Borders released a statement regarding her publication’s relationship (or lack thereof) with Faraci:

Yesterday, Tim League, owner of the Alamo Drafthouse, released a statement that our former Editor-in-Chief Devin Faraci has been copywriting for the Alamo after stepping down from Birth.Movies.Death. A number of fans were understandably upset by this information, and tonight Tim announced that Devin has officially parted ways from the company for good.

It remains unclear at this time as to if Faraci, since his resignation from Birth.Movies.Death last year, was ever not employed by an arm of the Drafthouse.  Representatives for the Drafthouse declined to comment.
