Riddle me this Conde Nast
If you are a such a smart company that DOESN’T hire incompetent people simply because they are wealthy, white, and have connections within the company… Why, pray tell, are you acting like a fool?
Is there a reason Mr. Delany is not fired? Is it possibly, just possibly, because if you fire ONE problematic, incompetent, wealthy, white man with connections in the company it will set a precedent to fire ALL the problematic, incompetent, wealthy, white people you hired because of their connections within the company and aforementioned qualities instead of hiring them for their skill?
Why exactly did Adam Rapoport and Matt Duckor get to RESIGN instead of being fired after being called out for racist, homophobic, and sexist behavior? Do you want to hire them to another branch under Conde Nast’s umbrella perhaps? Or is it because you feel bad for them and firing them would be too harsh? Maybe they were just such good employees that you don’t want them to say they were fired for disgusting behavior when applying for another job? How sweet!
Why is it that Amanda Shapiro and Oren Katzeff are still in positions of power? Why is it the people most responsible for the toxicity at BA and those being criticized the most, are not actually facing consequences? Why is it that Mr. Katzeff thinks that publicly suspending Hunzi will work to silence employees when fans can see directly through it? Why is it that Delany’s suspension happened quietly so that fans might forget about it? Do they think their smart elite brains are just so clever we don’t see what’s in front of us, that their employees aren’t aware of it, that they don’t have fans that will support them like they do the white hosts?
You aren’t slick assholes. Everyone can see right through it and you’re just making it worse for yourself. Maybe hire PR or something since you are so adamant about not changing the toxic work environment by removing the racist, homophobic, and sexist executives.
