Spotted this over at Pharside this morning and apparently this kid who lives in Cape Town and lists Steers as his employer is throwing out some seriously racist comments on Facebook.
Here’s the comment that caught the attention of Pharside (SA’s best overseas blog) yesterday.
Pharside points out that after that comment was spotted he went to see the dude’s full profile and noted that he lists Steers as his employer. I went to check the profile myself and his wall confirms his listed employer and also that he lives in Cape Town and studied at UCT. That and some more not-so-politically correct comments.
Mmm..if he does indeed work at Steers then they will have some splainin to do i’m sure. Not that it’s their fault, but still it’s not exactly an ideal situation to have someone you employ say stuff like that on a public platform.
It hasn’t been confirmed that this in in fact a genuine profile, but it does say that he went to Parktown Boys High School in 2010 so if anyone knows this kid and can prove it is indeed him then let us know hey.
And if you’re a spokesperson for Steers then get hold of Pharside and give your response.
If ever there was a justification for companies asking for access to your social networking accounts before they employ you, then this will be it.
