“When someone calls you a liar and a fraud, you’re going not want to say anything.
But I’m going to tell you, I know that you made a lot of money, but I don’t understand why you think that you’re worth more than me.’ “
When I call someone a liar, I’m gonna say, ‘I don’t have a ton of money.
But I’m going to tell you, I know that you made a lot of money, but I don’t understand why you think that you’re worth more than me.’
That’s what I’m supposed to say.”
“You’re gonna be surprised at the things you read,” the CEO added.
“If you’re in a tough position, I want to hear that.
You’re going the other way.
If you’re not in a position, you are not going to hear anything.”
When the executive’s comments about how his company should be used as a vehicle for promoting its products made their way to the front pages, the company’s stock took a massive hit.
It was the largest one-day drop in history.
But after the stock took another tumble, CEO Dan Quayle was quick to step in to offer a contrite apology and offer the following statement: “It’s my firm belief that I should have known that I was misusing the name ‘The Gmail’ in our marketing materials.
In fact, it was the company name that I made the mistake of using in the promotional materials.
I apologize to our customers, our employees, and our shareholders for my mistakes.
The mistakes were not intentional, and I am deeply remorseful.
I know I didn’t think of this in advance.
I’m sorry for any distress or embarrassment I may have caused our customers and employees, especially my wife, my daughter, my sister and I. “In light of the events of the past several weeks, we have made significant changes to our corporate culture.
I am fully committed to providing the best customer experience to our users, and will continue to strive to do so.”
The company also pledged to provide quarterly reports detailing the company revenue and earnings.
The company also promised to take a hard look at the ways it was using its brand and its platform to promote itself, as well as to make changes to the way it communicated with its customers and customers’ friends.
What’s next for Quayley?
He’ll have to prove his apology to the people who called him a liar.
