LASCO FIRE DI EMPLOYEE WHEY MEK DI FISH TWEET
Lasco Fires Employee Who Made Controversial Tweet About Omar McLeod
Manufacturer, Lasco Distributors Limited, says it has fired an employee who made an inappropriate tweet from the company’s Twitter account following the historic win by 110-metre hurdler Omar McLeod last night.
Lasco faced backlash from Twitter users with even opposition leader, Portia Simpson Miller, speaking on the matter via her Twitter account.
She encouraged her followers to celebrate all Jamaica’s athletes and unite to reject hate and bigotry.
The company later deleted the tweet and subsequently issued a statement saying its account was compromised.
In a further statement it said it had terminated the employee who made the tweet as it was a violation of the company’s code of conduct.
The company says it has the utmost respect for McLeod and apologised to him for any embarrassment caused by the social media post.
