Conde Nast chief cancelled

"Employees uncovered 'sexist and racist' tweets he penned almost a decade ago about women being 'nagging and irrational'"

Eew, his hair. It sounds like he's trying to be a standup comic from '60s and '70s. It was funny to the folks over 50 back then and no one now.

I used to work with this dipshit! He was a direct supervisor! Never have I seen anyone fail upwards with such speed. Good old Oren — he fancies him self a former standup comedian, but all he did was a few open mic nights.

Are you serious, R2? Did I actually call it?

by Anonymousreply 308/01/2020

Lol, R1 was right!

No wonder at all that this pompous piece of shit would feel emboldened to dump on women and minorities. Probably been told his whole life merit, integrity and talent don't matter, as long as you have you have the right connections.

Yawn. Only one of those tweets could be considered controversial. The rest were just lazy jokes. This is either an excuse to fire him or a giant reach.

People like this should not be in position of leadership in any field or profession.

Nothing wrong with anything he said, TwitterTards. Go back to watching legally questionable porn.

This is Catskill-esque, "Take-my-wife-please" shtick. I mean, yeah, it's vaguely "problematic," but... Firing someone for it? That's kind of disturbing.

He looks like a white version of Shrek. My god, the idea that Conde Nast found this ogre and Nuclear Wintour to be the best faces for their brand makes me wonder if their board was being blackmailed or just had bad eyesight and hearing.

Is he wrong?

Sweet baby Jeebus, those teeth!

Women are irrational, that's all there is to that. There heads are full of cotton, hay and rags...

R1, you sorta called it. He was never a comedian* in any way, but he did a few open-mics and suddenly, he snaked his way into a VP position at a Santa Monica startup overseeing Cracked.com. He wasn't thought of as a funny person and he never gained respect from his co-workers, but he knew which asses to kiss, which eventually got him to Conde Nast. For the few years I worked with him, he always came off as the desperate nerd who was always looking for a way to fit in. He's an extremely privileged, talentless, insecure tech VP who kissed ass to the top. The thing is, he wasn't even the worst person there. But ultimately, the people who worked with him at Conde Nast didn't like him, the same way people didn't like him when I worked with him. If his co-workers liked him, this would have been handled differently. This was clearly a convenient way to begin the process of getting rid of him. He's always been out of his depth.

*One time at work during an impromptu all-hands meeting, there was a 5-minute lag between presentations and one of our EVPs handed Oren the mic and said, "Oren's a comedian -- maybe he can do a few minutes for us." Oren turned red, slowly started inching backwards, and said no, he's not prepared or some bullshit like that. It was then that I knew that social climber was a fraud.

looking forward to when cancel culture is cancelled.

R14 more stories I love that!

There's a Clydesdale somewhere missing a whole lot of teeth.

Okay. He looks way better straight on. Even a slight profile gives away the very weak chin.

That is not an attractive man.

by Anonymousreply 2008/01/2020

He's a cross between Bob Dylan, Zach Braff, and Tim The Toolman Taylor

by Anonymousreply 2108/01/2020

He is proof positive that man descended from the apes. His particular family didn't descend far enough apparently.

If yo hair is short and nappy, Conkoleen will make it happy!

by Anonymousreply 2308/01/2020

Thanks, R14. It was the "sad but desperate to be funny without having any little bit of wit" that gave him away.

His parents must be proud and he has little Millie to explain this to soon enough. "Daddy, is it true you're a misogynist?"
