Welcome to the first of my “WHAT REALLY BUGS ME?” blog postings – decided it was time to speak out and become more vocal about the issues that bug me. Today’s what really bugs me is the CEO of GoDaddy’s video of him shooting an elephant. Bob Parson has a reputation for being a tough character and I get the whole need to cull animals, as hard as it is to watch, but to post it on your own blog under the guise of saving the planet is a bit rich.
The fact that the hunt is filmed, obviously with the intention of showing others, says it is much more about an ego kill than anything else, especially when you add the “I just killed this big elephant that I am standing in front of photo”. Culling should be done with respect and integrity. Neither of which are shown here. The brand GoDaddy will suffer a lot from this – and rightly so.
