GrubHub is in hot water, and I don’t mean because the company can deliver hot soup or boiled clams to your doorstep.
Last week, the GrubHub founder and CEO, Matt Maloney, sent an email after election day and informed employees about his viewpoint regarding the Donald Trump victory. I understand what he was saying–there is no place for hate speech.
Unfortunately, there’s been a fallout–namely with the stock price. And the app reviews. And from Twitter users. As reported by multiple outlets, Maloney has fallen under fire for the email and how it was so easy to misconstrue what he meant. It serves as a good lesson in making sure an email you send passes a few simple tests.
