(MSN)   Tech CEO who was fired by his board for his LSD use has filed suit saying that was just an excuse, and the REAL reason he was fired is because he was Asian. And he knows this because both the Purple Iguana, AND the seven-eyed man told him so   (msn.com) divider line

And that talking coyote was really just a talking dog...

That wasn't really LSD and you were fired for not being able to figure that out for yourself.

Lamely playing the race card at that level of business executives?
Good luck ever getting hired amywhere as CEO again,.genius.

If they were anti-asian, an Asian would never have been made CEO.

Your argument is invalid.

If I showed up to work absolutely trashed, I might be offered the option of going off to some bullshiat rehab, but it's also entirely possible that I'd be canned 15 minutes after they figured it out. I tend to think the guy hasn't got a case here. And maybe his suit is symptomatic of one or more character flaws that were the real reasons they wanted him out of the company.

Perhaps, but there is a not short list of famous non-Asian execs out there who been granted immense leeway over drug use.

First round of layoffs is the people who shouldn't have been fired.

Second round is cutting the fat, but hits the muscle.

Third round is certain people getting a "random" drug test.

Oldest trick in the book.

If you read between the lines of:
Zhu said in the lawsuit that he took a small amount of LSD before a 2019 investor meeting and his body "was more sensitive to the dose than he expected," affecting his vision ,

He took too much before an important investor meeting and was straight tripping balls during it and embarrassed the company because everyone noticed.

Yeah that would get nearly anyone fired, good luck proving that was just "pretextural"

Usually, "tripping balls during an important meeting with the people that give the company money" ends with having your stuff boxed up and security walking you out, not an explanation and a severance package.

Wait... this guy could talk to Ningauble?!

Any LSD use is illegal -- whether you agree with that or not.

So, the board has a completely solid case regardless of whether something else might have actually been the cause.

Yes, because if there's one industry that obviously has a bias against Asians, it's tech. They're famous for only allowing white people to lead their biggest companies like Microsoft and Alphabet/Google and Zoom and AMD. And anyone can ask Ben Chestnut how screwed Asian founders get on valuations - I'm shocked that he can even live on the pittance that he got for selling his life's work.

Yup, there's very obviously a bias against Asians in tech. Especially in California, which is known for not having a prominent Asian community.

And have you seen the size of the dragons in the kitchen?
