Dan Grilo, a proud Hillary Clinton volunteer, was harshly criticized for mocking the widow of a fallen Navy Seal. He tweeted, “Sorry, Owen’s wife, you’re not helping yourself or your husband’s memory by standing there and clapping like an idiot. Trump just used you.” He works as a principal for the Chicago base of the Liberty Advisor Group. The company saw his tweet and although the message was sent from his personal account, it isn’t consistent with the company’s values, and therefore Grilo was terminated. The tweet was not meant to cause anger, but the message of hate that he put out into the world was not acceptable and therefore he will no longer be working at Liberty.
From Fox News:
Grilo’s LinkedIn page says he works as a principal for the Chicago-based Liberty Advisor Group. But as of Wednesday morning, Grilo’s profile page on the site had been deleted, and the company later confirmed that an employee had sent what they called “an offensive and inappropriate tweet” regarding the Gold Star family. In a statement, the company said that while the message was from his personal account, “his comments were inconsistent with the Company’s values.” “Regardless of whether the comments in the tweet were intended to cause the hurt and anger that they ultimately generated, they were unacceptable to us, and the individual who issued the tweet is no longer affiliated with Liberty,” the statement said.
