Mojica, in a Daily Beast report published Wednesday, was accused of making sexually charged jokes to a former Vice producer, who left the company past year.
As a rash of sexual harassment allegations have broken out against powerful men in a slew of different industries, digital media upstart Vice has formed a female advisory committee to help improve its workplace culture.
"We do not tolerate harassment, abusive behavior, assault or retaliation and we will discipline anyone who engages in such conduct through a range of actions, including termination, as appropriate", declared a Vice spokesman on Wednesday.
Vice suspends film producer amid sexual harassment investigation
"A person familiar with the matter said that Mojica was suspended pending the outcome into an investigation of sexual misconduct between two former employees, first documented by the Daily Beast earlier this week", said The Wrap.
In the article, Barghouty says that Mojica asked her how flexible she was after ensuring that she had signed the company's "nontraditional workplace agreement", in which employees agree that they will not be offended by exposure to sexually provocative or explicit media.
Barghouty also alleged harassment from Vice Bureau Chief Kaj Larsen, who she claimed grabbed her arm and said, "If you're going to get anywhere with Vice guys, you're going to have to be a lot sweeter", while The Daily Beast claimed to have spoken to numerous other Vice Media employees who confirmed a culture of "harassing behavior".
