Grubhub CEO Suggests Trump-Supporting Employees Should Quit


The CEO of Grubhub, an online food delivery service, sent a company-wide email on Wednesday that suggested employees who support President-elect Donald Trump should resign, according to Fox News.

"If you do not agree with this statement then please reply to this email with your resignation because you have no place here," wrote Matt Maloney, the chief executive and cofounder of Grubhub.

"We do not tolerate hateful attitudes on our team," Maloney continued.

The subject line of the Grubhub email read, "So…that happened…what's next?"

"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 said. "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."

Maloney suggested that Trump would have been fired if he worked for the online food delivery service.

Fox News spoke with Maloney, who said "almost 20 percent" of GrubHub employees thanked him for the email.

Maloney, a Hillary Clinton supporter, claimed he was not embarrassed by the company-wide email.
