I don’t know if fired is the word. He’s the companies largest shareholder. He’s just moving back to prevent a backlash that would knock the share price even more. He’s already lost like 300 million in worth since his nfl issue and the call he was on was specifically about avoiding public relations issues like that in the future.

He’s still a billionaire or close to it.

Not a billionaire anymore but that doesn't matter. He's still wealthy. He just lost bragging rights at the Forbes party

Only he didn't lose his "job". Face still all over the brand/boxes, he's still on the board and still owns 24% stake. Poor guy.

Unbelievable. If there's not more to it in context, that's shameful.

black people needa check themselves seriously

i'm not even commenting about this any further if I can, but if trump pulls the welfare out like he's doing so far..

I think the point is taking such a big L on something so trivial (and ironic) is a criticism,against human mob mentality witch hunt behavior. The never ending need to look down on someone for your own inadaquacies. hat appears to be sailing riight over your dome.

Where is his big L? Dude worth like $800mil and he had a big L? Dudes like you don't have any idea of what a big L is. Perhaps you never faced it in life, yet.

Yes relatively speaking its a big L. It shows an oversensitive witchunt culture. Some middle manager could've got fired for the same off hand remark and you'd never hear about it. This highlights the problem at a level you can see it.
