In short here is UPDATE 1:
UPDATE II – Goodyear admits the slide was used, but blames a lowbie… how typical to throw a nobody under the bus:
Goodyear tire company has weighed in with the marxists/communists with a now famed HR briefing to employees that marxist political messaging is allowed while any other political messaging, specifically Republican political messaging or anything showing support for rank and file police is banned.
Also, it should not matter at all to Goodyear if someone’s sexual preference is. What people do for “”fun”” in the privacy of their own home has nothing to do with tires or the quality of employees work.
At First, in their response to WIBW, Goodyear did not deny any of it and appeared to double down on stupid:
“Goodyear is committed to fostering an inclusive and respectful workplace where all of our associates can do their best in a spirit of teamwork. As part of this commitment, we do allow our associates to express their support on racial injustice and other equity issues but ask that they refrain from workplace expressions, verbal or otherwise, in support of political campaigning for any candidate or political party as well as other similar forms of advocacy that fall outside the scope of equity issues.”
Melissa Monaco, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company
After the story went viral and Goodyear realized that this was going to get them in real trouble, they changed their story and denied that the graphic was used in any of their diversity training (which no one believes) and then followed with the typical corporate doublespeak response without a response.
President Trump and Keyleigh McEnany weighed in:
Look at how the reporter goes through Orwellian leaps to present BLM as a simple equity group.
Democrats’ response has been to either welcome Goodyear to “the resistance” or to complain about how Trump’s response could cost American jobs. SO now the purveyors of cancel culture say they care about jobs. Who knew?
In the mean time Goodyear stock….
