Boycott of Anti-Trump Grubhub Takes Hold

You know what to do. Join the boycott, if it applies to you. I never heard of Grubhub, so I can’t boycott. Let’s get the CEO fired too.

Food delivery service Grubhub is leaving a bad taste in Donald Trump supporters’ mouths.

The company is already feeling the financial repercussions of an internal email CEO Matt Maloney sent to employees Wednesday, with company shares falling 5 percent in the last 24 hours.

In the Apple iTunes store, the app now has new one-star reviews knocking Maloney’s comments.

“I just heard about your CEO’s leaked memo regarding President-Elect Trump. While his opinion is his prerogative, to assert that his employees should resign if they supported Trump is mean and manipulative,” posted one user in a review titled “I’ll never use GrubHub [sic] again.”

In the email, first obtained by FoxNews.com, Maloney suggested that supporters of President-elect Donald Trump should resign, and the company would not tolerate “hateful attitudes” in the workplace.

On Thursday, Grubhub tweeted a response to the email with a link to a follow-up statement from Maloney indicating that his original comments had been misconstrued.

“I want to clarify that I did not ask for anyone to resign if they voted for Trump. I would never make such a demand. To the contrary, the message of the email is that we do not tolerate discriminatory activity or hateful commentary in the workplace, and that we will stand up for our employees.”

But many Grubhub users are furious with Maloney’s original statement against Trump and say they’re willing to for go the convenience of the delivery service–for good. Dozens have taken to social media using the hashtag #boycottgrubhub and have vowed never to use the platform again.

Company stock was down about 5 percent on Friday.

Fire Maloney!

  1. Baloney from Maloney. Oh dear!
    Remember Gerald Ratner? Chief Executive of the Ratners Group (H. Samuels, Kays etc.)
    Back in 1991 he made a throwaway comment at the end of a speech – not a clever thing to do.

    “We also do cut-glass sherry decanters complete with six glasses on a silver-plated tray that your butler can serve you drinks on, all for £4.95. People say, “How can you sell this for such a low price?”, I say, “because it’s total crap.” After the speech, the value of the Ratner group plummeted by around £500 million, which very nearly resulted in the firm’s collapse.
    Ratner hired a chairman in an attempt to stabilise the situation, but was subsequently fired by the new company leader in November 1992.” (thanks to Wikipedia)

    Pissing-off your customers is never a smart move.

  2. I have never heard of Grubcuck. I jewgled it though. Why would I use a middleman to order take-out? I guess that I am just not a hep cat. Although, sometimes I wish I was a cool, hipster techie a**hole who created some silly new application that I could get other hipster a**holes to use and then I would retire.
