It's obviously a stupid thing to say. It's obviously discriminatory. He's had a dark thought about all the **** he's had thrown at him and sent it to someone who had the context for it and probably laughed themselves. I know a number of people with all sorts of disabilities, some would have laughed at his comment and replied "no chance you fat ****" others would have been mortified and very cross. It is where we are as a society. I can't figure out why he didn't say this then? Could it have saved his job? Maybe, possibly not. Would also have quashed all the stupidity about dogs, that said I used to work with a guy who was actually fired and prosecuted for making films of a brass and his dog so it does happen.
Clearly, once the HR nazi's were involved, he was f*cked.
They are the police (who themselves are not policed) in any business but, accountable to nobody except at best, an industrial tribunal.
They don't care about moralities but they DO care about what THEIR actions look like, especially in a case like this.
FAR easier to f*ck him over than have to risk defending themselves against possibly looking like they had condoned some kind of disability discrimination. Even though imo, it wasn't. It was someone attempting to make a funny, at his OWN expense. He wasn't taking the piss out of the person he filmed. Again, imo. I don't care how sh*t he was or wasn't as a ref, that had nothing to do with this case.
No, by sacking him, they can take some kind of moral high ground & say, 'Look at us, we do the correct thing'.
One of the morals of the story is, who in your life can you really trust, sending stuff to?
