CEO Resigns After Threatening To KILL Trump With Sniper Rifle

The CEO of network security company PacketSled is stepping down after making a clear assassination threat toward President-Elect Donald Trump on his personal Facebook page.

According to the Daily Caller, Matt Harrigan wrote on Facebook, “I’m going to kill the president. Elect."

He later clarified, “Getting a sniper rifle and perching myself where it counts. Find a bedroom in the whitehouse that suits you [expletive]. I’ll find you.”

He then rounded it off by posting, “In no uncertain terms, [expletive] you America. Seriously. [Expletive] Off.”

Naturally, his comments sparked an outrage from his customers and others, prompting him to try to explain it away, saying, "My humble apologies that a flawed joke has become public/out of context. My poor judgement does not represent the views of @packetsled customers, investors or the officers of @packetsled. I have no malicious intention towards the #POTUS, and apologize to all for my lack of judgement and offensive commentary. I wish you all well."

Not surprisingly, his apology was not enough. To their great credit, his own company immediately reported his threat to the Secret Service, apologized to their customers, and accepted Harrigan's resignation on Monday.

But people still took out their anger on PacketSled itself, tanking its Google rating to an abysmal 1.1 stars out of 5 and writing reviews critical of Harrigan.

Meanwhile, Grubhub CEO Matt Maloney is desperately trying to repair the reputation of his food delivery company after he strongly implied to his employees that they should resign if they support Trump.
