Mike Isaac writing for re/code:
“Stanford University Provost and Professor John Etchemendy sent a scathing email to the school’s student body on Friday, widely condemning a series of recently unearthed sexist, raucous emails sent years ago by Evan Spiegel, an alumnus of the school who is now the founder of disappearing mobile messaging startup Snapchat.”
University backpedaling hard.
Trying to put distance between itself and Snapchat CEO Spiegel:
“’Members of our community should learn now, not many years from now, how abhorrent those attitudes are, whether real or feigned,’ Etchemendy wrote.”
Spiegel created his own reputation crisis.
His crisis is now Stanford’s, too.
Would you work for CEO Spiegel?
