Coke is the debbel!
Wish I could get fired like that.‘Woke’ Coke Pauses Diversity Plan After ‘Intense Backlash,’ Plan Author Suddenly Resigns
“Legal defense foundation Project on Fair Representation published an open letter to Coca-Cola last week warning that Coke’s outside counsel ‘racial quota requirements’ are ‘unlawful,'” the outlet added.
Republican leaders announced boycotts and state and federal legislators warned that if Coca-Cola and other high-profile corporations did not stay out of politics that they could lose tax breaks at the state and federal levels. It’s not clear whether the boycotts or the threats of rescinding tax breaks worked, but Coca-Cola’s stock was down around 12% in January. The company plans to report first-quarter profits shortly.
In late April, Coca-Cola quietly announced that Gayton had departed his role as general counsel with a “golden parachute” — an unusual event given that Gayton had worked for the company for less than a year.
“As part of the [separation] agreement, [Gayton] will receive a $4 million sign-on payment and a monthly consulting fee of $666,666, beginning this month and ending April 2022,” the company reported, according to BusinessWire, which listed Gayton’s new role as helping to “drive certain key objectives,” without further explanation.
I'd agree if this were 10 or 15 years ago. A decision like this would have incurred the wrath of the consumers, if corporations were even stupid enough to try it. Not so much in today's woke world.I think people and corporations should do as they please and suffer the consequences. Spew all the racial BS you want, and then people can make up their own minds whether they want to contribute to your freaking $8M paycheck or not.
A funny thing. Watched a video recently. This video appears to dispel that Mexican soda Cola is made with sugar, and is in fact made with HFCS. Seems Coca-Cola has been BSing them, and us as a marketing scam, for a while now.No HFCS you say? Well that explains why Mexico has absolutely no problem with obesity, high blood pressure, or heart disease.
