GrubHub’s (GRUB) CEO Matt Maloney Asks Trump Supporting Employees To Resign

Posted on

Millions are protesting Donald Trump’s presidential victory, showing just how upset many people in the Nation are over his win.

GrubHub Ceo Matt Maloney is one of them, and in an e-mail to his employees, he wrote, “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. Had he worked here, many of his comments would have resulted in his immediate termination.”

He further wrote, “I absolutely reject the nationalist, anti-immigrant and hateful politics of Donald Trump and will work to shield our community from this movement as best as I can,” and that “if you do not agree with this statement then please reply to this email with your resignation because you have no place here.”

Asking these employees to resign has created some major backlash and Maloney released a press release to clarify his views.

“Grubhub welcomes and accepts employees with all political beliefs, no matter who they voted for in this or any election. We do not discriminate on the basis of someone’s principles, or political or other beliefs,” he wrote.

The company just released its third-quarter report and while beating analyst estimates for both revenue and earnings, shares still dropped as much as 10% on Wednesday.
