Anger in the times of social media can be a tricky thing to handle and this fired Reddit employee, who goes by the username dehrmann, has had to learn this the hard way.
Word to the wise, and to the foolish: It may not be the best idea to crib about your ex-boss on a platform he’s the CEO of.
It all began when dehrmann decided to host an AMA session (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit, to crib about..*drumroll*.. Reddit.
Needless to say, when you crib about your former job, your former company and your former boss on a platform owned by them, you can kiss your chances of a job reference goodbye. Reddit CEO Yishan Wong is not someone to be messed with, especially in a war of words and his response to this now-infamous AMA is sharp and quite lethal.
Want to crib about your boss, current or ex? Perhaps you should do it in a place your future employers have no access to.
