Shelton says he let his staff run the business' social media accounts, and at least a couple dozen employees have had the password over the years.

So maybe not a tinfoil nutter racist, but definitely a moron.

At the same time, Shelton tells Washingtonian that some of the tweets do line up with his beliefs. ... "The masks don't help anything. They're more about conformity and submission than they are about safety," he says.

Oh yeah, I totally believe you didn't post/like anything on your twitter.

Would be especially moronic to not look over what was tweeted on the business' behalf while he wasn't running it.

Either that, or it's just a gaping hole in his cover story.

He alleges he was the one turning down advances: "There have been employees that hit on me as well that I don't pay any attention to. And that pisses them off. Little cute girls that have worked here that are being denied, OK? And you've got to understand that too. And that might piss somebody off too. I don't do it. I've never messed around with anyone at work."


Yes.  I am sure all the teenage girls you've employed were just tripping over themselves to get with their middle-aged boss. He's delusional.  It's just a variation on the same kind of response a lot of these guys give when they're called out on their BS, whether it be racism, sexism, authoritarianism, or anything else in that orbit.  It's either the not-a-victim's fault, a joke, a 'simple misunderstanding', or 'just asking questions'.  Most of those showed up in his quotes in the article about the various topics at hand.

Continues to amaze me how many dudes my age I've seen (50) that seem to seriously believe that young women are falling over themselves to get at their old dad bods.  To be fair, I'd imagine there are a few daddy issues types - human sexuality is weird - and there are always the rent types, but no I'm not thinking young women are randomly lusting after my broken ass.  But then again, I guess if you're willing to believe that the brown people/poors are coming to git ya, or that trickle-down economics totally work, then "teenage sex fiends totally want me" isn't that hard to subscribe to.

I have someone I trust running my social media accounts.
Half of the posts are my words that he packages, and had are quotes from other people (duly attributed).
I send him my posts for "packaging", he sends me the quotes for approval, but beyond that, I don't really check up if he posted anything else.
The only time I do is when someone interacts with the posts and I open to reply.
