Few things are more amusing than SJW autophagy. Better make that turn flawlessly with the school of fish or it will turn on you!
Paramount says it has fired the head of its television division for making unspecified comments that drew complaints from employees.
Paramount Pictures CEO Jim Gianopulos wrote in a memo Thursday that Amy Powell had been fired for making comments that were ‘inconsistent with company values.’ The memo did not elaborate on the nature of the statements or where they were made, beyond stating they were said in a ‘professional setting.’
A source told Variety that the comments were ‘racially charged’ in nature.
Powell allegedly made an insensitive remark about the television adaptation of the 1996 movie First Wives Club. During a conference call with producers of the show, Powell made a comment about black women being angry. This prompted an African-American assistant who was on the call to complain.
That will certainly show her that black women are not angry! At this point, you have to be utterly shortsighted or totally clueless to celebrate diversity. Diversity is corporate cancer and it’s just a matter of time before it blows up on you.
NOW ON THE MMQB: Jenny Vrentas on the rise of powerful women in NFL ownership circles
What football fans don’t want to read more about the rise of powerful women? Only all of them. Moreover, even if you don’t do or say anything even remotely objectionable, they will manufacture a thoughtcrime if necessary.
“Back To Eden Bakery” says that according to its own surveillance video, a black woman named “Lillian”, who is well known in the area as a “professional equity activist”, entered at 9:06 p.m., after the bakery’s closing time. Employees had also turned off the “Open” sign, but several customers (all white) who had already ordered were still inside. Two other white women who went to the bakery two minutes before “Lillian”, were also informed that the business was closed for the night.
The bakery says “Lillian” left the store briefly and began recording video.
The bakery’s statement says that even though it does not consider the employees to be racist and that they were following the business’s protocol of closing at 9 p.m., they were fired because “sometimes impact outweighs intent.”
Think they would have tried this stunt at a bakery where the Confederate flag was flying high and proudly?
