Death Comes for the PR Manager

Posted by on Fri, Jul 27, 2012 at 11:38 AM

...of Chik-Fil-A:

News 3 has learned that Donald A. Perry, the Vice President of Corporate Public Relations has passed away. Ross Cathy, the owner of the Midland, GA Chick-fil-A and family member of company CEO, Dan Cathy, tells News 3, Perry passed away this morning from a heart attack.

One minute you're defending your company against Muppets, the next you're in the great beyond. Condolences to all.

(And the countdown to the first far-right media figure to blame this on gays starts now.)

God smote him because he doubted the company's (God’s) path and direction in the abolishment of evil in the world through crunchy chicken sandwiches.

or

God smote him because of their hatred and intolerance and lack of love and compassion.

or

People die; stress and fast food speeds the timeline.

Just watched Colbert's bit on Chick-fil-a. There's a santorum reference!

America just got a little bit safer, a little bit freer, and a little bit cleaner.

Always classy, liberals, dancing on some man's grave. I thought you people were supposed to be all sensitive and caring and shit.

Only if the object of that caring and shit isn't a white man.

In before femonazi-ebonics-marxist-nazi butthurt.

@6,
I thought you people [liberals] were supposed to be all sensitive and caring and shit.
Where'd you get that idea? It's incorrect.

@11 Well, I’m very empathic and caring.
@6: people die. If you believe, as he apparently did, that people go to heaven when that happens then, yay, good news: he's dead.

@6:

Why? Because, every time we express sensitivity and caring for someone people like you shit all over us for our "bleeding-hearted do-gooderism". So, some of us have simply decided to try out a few things from the GOP playbook for a change.

Chik-fil-A people are Christians.
Christian's don't EVER lie.

So I can't figure out this picture:

@6, if you need to take a minute to go and look up the word "condolences," go ahead. We'll be here. Here's a hint: it's not a cigar.

I'm pretty far left on the political spectrum, but never understood the hypocrisy of saying nice things about someone who was an asshole just because they finally had the grace to die.

He shilled for a homophobic company that makes an unhealthy, mediocre product. He died. I'm sure his family and friends loved him and will miss him. I won't.

Don't forget that this is also gallows humor for publicists.

If he was Catholic, I hope he had time to have his confession heard. Otherwise, based on the bullshit his PR department has been spinning, he'd be lucky to land in Purgatory.
