Here we go; the tolerant left is at it again. After Donald Trump’s historic presidential victory, the CEO of GrubHub, Matt Maloney, sent an email to employees in which he let them know that if they don’t agree with his extremely anti-Trump statement, they need to resign.
“If you do not agree with this statement then please reply to this email with your resignation because you have no place here,” Maloney, Co-Founder of GrubHub and a Hillary Clinton supporter, wrote to his employees. “We do not tolerate hateful attitudes on our team.”
The email was sent to employees on Wednesday and featured a subject line that read: “So … that happened … what’s next?” followed by massive ignorance and bigotry about Trump and his supporters.
“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,” Maloney wrote.
“I want to reaffirm to anyone on our team that is scared or feels personally exposed, that I and everyone else here at GrubHub will fight for your dignity and your right to make a better life for yourself and your family here in the United States.”
Maloney went on to claim that Trump’s words would have gotten him fired if he were an employee at GrubHub. 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,” Maloney claimed.

Despite the bigoted nature of the email — or perhaps perhaps because of it — Maloney told Fox News that “almost 20 percent” of his employees personally thanked him for the email and he added: “I am not embarrassed by it.”
He may not be embarrassed by it, but he may find himself in legal trouble for it.
In addition to major backlash and calls for a boycott of the company on social media, one Twitter user pointed out that the CEO’s actions may actually have been illegal.
/5 In short, @Grubhub will probably be paying some lawyers some money to sort this out.

Maloney claimed in a news release that his comments had been “misconstrued” and that he didn’t urge Trump supporters to resign but, as you can see in the full email, above, that’s precisely what he did.
So much for the tolerant left…
