    McDonald's CEO fired for dating company employee

    McDonald's CEO fired for dating company employee
    Steve Easterbrook served as the company’s chief executive since 2015.
    MCDONALD’S HAS REMOVED its president and CEO Steve Easterbrook from his position after he engaged in a relationship with an employee of the company.

    In a statement yesterday, McDonald’s said Easterbrook showed “poor judgment” by engaging in a “consensual relationship”.

    “Easterbrook… has separated from the company following the board’s determination that he violated company policy and demonstrated poor judgment involving a recent consensual relationship with an employee,” the company said."





    (Clearly "lovin' it" was not a good move.)

    .. sorry....I'll get my coat

    Did I? An inadvertent omission.

    Well, your insult to me did deserve the proper response.

    Does this mean you won't be posting your favourite Jamaican turkey chicken recipe? I am utterly distraught.

    These boards? You speak for the whole forum then, do you? My advice (once you've given me the push) is to take another peek at the progression of this dialogue. It is you who've taken a simple subject (and my humble opinion) and have done your damnedest to make a battle of it. But you just do as you please. I'm not bothered much.

    It's not an opinion on objective fact that anyone's objected to (though it was briefly amusing demonstrating that it wasn't even correct) but your insistence on repeating a stereotype that a lot of people would consider a racist trope. It's not something you can have an objective opinion on, by repeating it you are merely perpetuating it.

    I am happy that you decided to respond rather than to run off.

    It's like this - I really, honestly, sincerely have no idea what the problem is here. There are two points from this post of yours:

    1. “repeating a stereotype.”

    2. “a racist trope”


    Explain to me where you see either of them in my replies. Quoting would be nice.

    Followed by your dogged insistence that this was a normal and neutral association to make.

    You see, I knew this was storm in a teacup.

    1. I've never heard of Jamaican turkey chicken. You don't really think I am lying, do you? The only thing I know about Jamaica is reggae music, Bob Marley, and ganja. That's it. So joking about having it sprinkled on this famous dish of yours is not a cardinal sin.

    2. I made no insistence on any association. Fact is fact, being that my countrymen (in general) know as much about Jamaica as I and I will repeat it as often as required. Does that mean that I insist Jamaican turkey chicken is sprinkled with ganja??? For God's sake, man. If you know nothing more about Sweden than meatballs and Volvo I can assure you that my head isn't going to explode. People who get upset over such trivial matters carry their problems within themselves.

    3. Where is this "racist trope" you imagine? Racism doesn't even enter into it. Did I say anything about race? You know very well that I did not.

    Ok, am freaked out now.

    But a tiny bit of freakout is that Lazytown was over a decade ago. :eek:
    And then I remember I was only aware of it because my nephew was well into it at that time, and he just turned 13.

    I hope a certain poster is younger than 30 because that would at least ease the main source of freakout and I could just fret about being old.

    I think you're being a dick on this thread, and you've already been given one warning which you've ignored, and I would strongly advise you to wind your neck in and have a think about why what you've posted and continue to post has offended a lot of people (for reasons that they have generously explained).

    I haven't seen any warning and I don't give a stuff in any case. I have offered generous explanations of my own on why I have been no "dick" and have offended no one. Just read my posts in this thread if you are in doubt. If you think returning grief to the sender is such an offence then I see no reason to "wind my neck in". Is there anything else you'd like to say?
