Caity Weaver is an American journalist, humorist, and writer at The New York Times. Previously she wrote for GQ magazine and Gawker, and contributed to Mental Floss.

Career[edit]

In 2011, Weaver joined Gawker.[1] With her irreverent write-ups on celebrity news and restaurant reviews, she became one of the site's most popular writers.[2] She won critical acclaim for writing a 6,000-word feature, "My 14-Hour Search for the End of TGI Friday's Endless Appetizers", about a 14-hour all-you-can-eat T.G.I. Friday's mozzarella sticks binge.[3][4] In January 2015, she was promoted to senior editor at Gawker.[5]

In October 2015, Weaver joined the staff of GQ,[6] writing about arts and entertainment for the publication. Her feature article about Kim Kardashian in 2016 brought GQ its "two biggest days of online traffic in the publication’s history — a million unique views when the story went live on June 16 and more than two million views over 36 hours."[7]

In 2016, Brooklyn Magazine named Weaver one of Brooklyn's "50 Funniest People".[8]

Weaver joined the Styles desk at the New York Times in March 2018.[9]
