WATCH: CEO Fired After Video Surfaces of Altercation with Hotel Employee from Viral Video
Dalton Stevens has gone viral lately though you may not recognize the name.
Dalton is the young man who was the target of race-baiting and harassment by a man at a Holiday Inn Express.
If you haven’t seen the video, take a look below:
The kid lost his mind, but he recognizes that he has some mental issues and even started to tell the man harassing him that he has mental issues but he ended up cutting him off before he could say it.
Someone started a GoFund Me fundraiser which has since raised nearly $100,000 for the young man.
The whole situation was a disaster and while I don’t agree with the employee acting the way that he did, the real problem was the guy harassing him.
Well, as it turns out, this guy is also homosexual and decided to go to prom with his boyfriend and wore a red dress. Yes…a dress.
One man who happened to be wherever they were decided to voice his opinion about the guy wearing the dress. Now look…I am adamently against homosexuality and guys wearing dresses like this…BUT, I am equally for people minding their own business and not getting involved in something when it’s not necessary, especially when it’s in the form of shaming and mockery.
Yes, I do believe it is a shameful thing, but I don’t think mocking someone helps.
Well, the video garnered some traction thanks to the hotel incident and Sam Johnson, the man seen in the video above suffered some consequences.
Johnson was the CEO of VisuWell, a telehealth platform company, until the video went viral. The company posted on Twitter Monday night that Johnson was removed as CEO by the board of directors.
“VisuWell’s culture emphasizes respect, kindness and compassion, especially for those from traditionally marginalized communities, and we maintain a zero-tolerance policy for intolerance of any kind,” VisuWell said on Twitter. “Mr. Johnson’s actions contradicted the high standards we set for ourselves in promoting the health of those who use our platform.”
