CEO Tries To Explain Away His Demand For Trump Supporters To Quit

The CEO of Grubhub is trying to do emergency repair work on the company's reputation after he sent a post-election message to his employees that appeared to be asking any of them who are Trump supporters to resign.

According to BizPacReview, CEO Matt Maloney of the independent restaurant food delivery service vented his frustration with Trump's victory by sending an e-mail that read, in part, "While demeaning, insulting and ridiculing minorities, immigrants and the physically/mentally disabled worked for Mr. Trump, I want to be clear that this behavior — and these views, have no place at Grubhub."

He went on to trash Trump further before concluding, “If you do not agree with this statement then please reply to this email with your resignation because you have no place here. We do not tolerate hateful attitudes on our team.”

His full statement went viral, leading many Trump supporters — and number of disgusted people who didn't vote for Trump — to say on social media that they were no longer going to do business with the company.

Maloney responded to the backlash with another statement, not apologizing for his first memo but rather saying it was misconstrued.

He insisted that he did not ask anyone to resign and that his original company-wide e-mail "was intended to advocate for inclusion and tolerance — regardless of political affiliation — during this time of transition for our country."

But many people believe Maloney's explanation is just pure...baloney.
