After warning his employees that a second Obama term could cost them their jobs, the CEO of Westgate Resorts in Florida has become something of a villain.
“What a d*ck,” a Gawker commenter said about Siegel. “Will someone please let me know when it’s time to storm the Bastille? I have my torch and pitchfork ready.”
Or maybe he’s not.
So is this a PR disaster? Westgate Resorts is a privately held company, so the comments are not illegal.
The problem is the crisis of confidence for his employees, according to Hinda Mitchell, vice president at the PR agency CMA.
