27歲的加拿大籍華裔青年創業者黃鐵鋒(Brian Wong),涉嫌於2016年在美國德州奧斯汀市,強姦一名女大學生,3月15日被正式起訴。黃一手創辦的移動廣告網路Kiip,已另聘執行長,取代黃的位置。

案情指,黃鐵鋒在手機交友程式Tinder,結織在美國萊斯大學就讀的Samantha Luu(化名),2016年相約在「西南偏南」藝術節大會舉行期間,到舉辦城市德州奧斯汀見面。女方對警方稱,自己在派對上喝了半杯酒後頭暈目眩,其後發現自己身在黃鐵鋒的酒店房間內。她說,曾要求黃鐵鋒停手,一度踢開他並大喊「強姦」,但最後還是遭到侵犯。她開車回校園所在的休斯敦后,向學校報告事件,校方再轉介奧斯汀警方處理。

該案件一度被Luu終止,不過她去年再次與奧斯汀警方接觸,再次開啟案件,因為自己「現在的處境可以繼續參與到案件中」。

黃聲稱,二人同意初次約會便發生性行為。黃的代表律師指,黃鐵鋒3年來一直全面配合警方調查,也通過測謊測試,堅稱清白。

黃鐵鋒曾是天才少年,於溫哥華出生,父母是香港移民。他小的時候曾沉迷電腦遊戲,不過仍然以優異的成績畢業於卑詩大學(UBC)商學院。他19歲時創辦移動廣告網絡Kiip,該平台令用戶可以將遊戲里的成就兌換成實物獎勵,同時推送贊助商廣告,並且可以從遊戲開發商的盈利中抽成。Kiip自成立以來已籌資3,200萬美元,在紐約、舊金山、洛杉磯和芝加哥擁有員工和辦事處。

按Kiip董事會要求,黃已於2月26日無限期休假,公司宣布聘任資訊顧問企業Katnar Group的管理層人員傑森·拉普(Jason Lapp)為新任執行長。該公司在一份聲明中表示:「Kiip致力於維護一個安全的工作環境,讓每個人都得到尊重。我們希望每位員工,包括我們的CEO,都遵守我們的行為準則。」
