I think Seth took it pretty well actually.This incident is really unfortunate and odd. It’s going to end poorly for someone. It’s already bad for Dunlap. He got embarrassed. Whoever has ultimate control of that twitter acct. is ultimately at fault whether they did it or not.
You can sue pretty much so anyone for anything. Doesn't mean you will win. The question will be if it was a "hostile work environment" and whether he was adversely affected by the action. So, if he can win will depend on what has gone on their in the past and how they react to this. The Tweet alone is unlikely to be enough assuming that similar things have not happened in the past, they actually investigate and fire/intervene with the person who wrote it, and take no adverse action against Dunlop (they won't unless they are total idiots).I don't see why not. Law suits aimed at companies are over one persons actions all the time.
I agree it's unfair to say "rogue homophobic slur tweet = evidence that the whole station has some hateful agenda" and that's sort of what Nick suggests. I only posted it because Underhill has a following and to show that the story was noticed by those outside of the market.What a milquetoast comment. I’m trying to understand the “undertones” he is talking about. He is commenting about a horrible hateful comment tweeted but now it is part of the wwl “undertones”
I mean that covers it, no telling who sent it out, could have been some disgruntled assistant, who happened across an open Twitter account, then bam sends the tweet. I highly doubt anyone of significants sent that. Let them look into it and handle it when they figure it out. I have access to my managers emails and personal info accounts at work, due to how our system logs you off, it doesn't lol. I can send an email from any of their accounts and ruin their career. Stuff like this happens, more than we know.
