Saw your tweet. Let's see if I get blocked too. I responded to his comment about Hideki Kamiya. I said he would have been fired years ago, if he worked for an American company. However he works for a Japanese company, so it isn't an apt comparison. I didn't even add the fact that Kamiya is one of the three founders of Platinum Games. The Hideki Kamiya comparison is a poor one. Side note: Papa John himself just got pushed out the company for saying derogatory things in an internal company meeting. He's the founder of the company. It's named after him. America is a totally different animal when it comes to these sorts of things. Here if you say something that could hurt the bottom line, you get let go.
Exactly. He didn't even attack anyone directly. He made a racial slur and that was all it took. Just like with Price, it was completely uncalled for. How do you even reach that point where a company meeting gets you to say something racist? Unlike Price, he didn't say it for the whole world to see and it still got him pushed out. People defending her are acting like people don't get fired or lose their status all the time for saying dumb shit. They continue to try and claim that she was fired because of the luke warm rage of some internet mob targeting a woman. No. A thousand times, no. She was fired because she went out of her way to trash a customer and partner for the whole world to witness. Just like Adam Orth when he told customers, or would-be customers, to "just deal with it" in regards to Microsoft's DRM fiasco.
