Earlier this month, a video showing Better.com CEO Vishal Garg firing 900 employees during a Zoom call went viral. “If you’re on this call, you are part of the unlucky group being laid off,” he said.
The move drew a wave of backlash from critics and even some of the company’s own executives, prompting three to resign. Garg later apologized for having “blundered the execution.”
While discussing the story on Fox News’ Outnumbered this Wednesday, most of the panel agreed that the mass firing was done in poor taste, except for co-host Emily Compagno.
“I loved this, actually. I loved this so much,” said Compagno before bidding the fired workers “good riddance.”
“Sorry guys, bye! For all of them, they’re snowflakes,” she continued. “They’re probably millennials and [Generation] Zs. Yep. They need to learn work ethic.”
According to Compagno, the mass firing was necessary because some of the workers “averaged two hours a day even though they were being paid for eight.”
“He let them know that their theft was no longer tolerated,” she said.
