Stock Drops Like a Rock After Woke CEO Says He's 'Eager' to Hire Anti-Israel Protesters

Share

As the saying goes, play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

That’s exactly what Hims and Hers CEO Andrew Dudum got after he took to social media to encourage anti-Israel protesters to apply to the company, claiming that companies will want to hire them for their “moral courage.”

“Moral courage > College degree,” he posted. “If you’re currently protesting against the genocide of the Palestinian people & for your university’s divestment from Israel, keep going. It’s working.”

“There are plenty of companies & CEOs eager to hire you, regardless of university discipline,” he continued, adding a link to apply to the company.

It’s unclear where Dudum sees “moral courage” in spewing anti-Semitic remarks and blocking off parts of campus from students, but little of his logic follows in the first place.

As businessman Joe Lonsdale noted in the replies, “Real moral courage doesn’t involve joining a mindless mob, chanting anti-US and other woke pablum, following instructions not to debate or discuss your positions at all yet being indignantly righteous, while large numbers in the mob chant for violence and block Jewish students.”

Will this stock continue to drop?

The public, or at least those trading the company’s stock, do not appear to be siding with Dudum, as the company price dropped a whopping eight percent on Friday, just days after the tweet was put out, according to the New York Post.

The sexual health and pharmaceutical company lost an immense $210 million in stock value that day, with signs pointing to a continuation of the trend.

So in one fell swoop, Hims and Hers has lost hundreds of millions in market value, lost significant public opinion and is now looking to hire a bunch of DEI employees.

The simple fact of the matter is that companies should stay out of political issues.

A majority of U.S. adults don’t believe that companies should take public stances on current events, according to Gallup.

There are exceptions, of course, as any American should want an American company to support their homeland, but outside of that, it’s best to shut up and do business.

Is putting out one little political message really worth costing your company millions?

If your answer is yes, you really shouldn’t be in charge.


An Important Message from Our Staff:

 

In just a few months, the world is going to change forever. The 2024 election is the single most important election of our lifetime. 

 

We here at The Western Journal are committed to covering it in a way the establishment media simply will not: We will tell the truth, and they will lie.
