The CEO of 5W Public Relations appeared on “Nightline” this week to discuss Casey Anthony, who was released from jail on Monday. In a column for Business Insider, Torossian followed up his “Nightline” remarks by insisting that if Anthony—the “child killer,” as he put it—were his client he’d advise her to “jump off a bridge.”

He added:

No self respecting PR firm needs to assist her in this endeavor, and I’d urge all my colleagues in public relations to universally say no.
