While nearly 60 million people voted for Donald J. Trump to become the next President of the United States, it's safe to say that plenty of Americans are upset about the results of the 2016 election.
Matt Maloney, co-founder and CEO of the popular food delivery service Grubhub, sent a memo to employees Wednesday afternoon stating that the views and behavior of President-elect Trump "have no place at Grubhub."
The email outlined the values of the company, affirming that, "We are better, faster and stronger together," and that Grubhub has always provided a "culture of support and inclusiveness."
Maloney, a Hillary Clinton supporter, went on to say, "I absolutely reject the nationalist, anti-immigrant and hateful politics of Donald Trump and will work to shield our community from this movement as best as I can."
"If you do not agree with this statement then please reply to this email with your resignation because you have no place here," wrote Maloney. "We do not tolerate hateful attitudes on our team."
On social media, the reaction has been swift and polarizing.
Many were quick to point out that Grubhub's stock was tanking Thursday in the wake of Maloney's email.
In a blog post published Thursday, Maloney denied the claims that he asked pro-Trump employees to resign, saying, "Grubhub welcomes and accepts employees with all political beliefs, no matter who they voted for in this or any election. We do not discriminate on the basis of someone’s principles, or political or other beliefs."
