Executive Fired After Decorating Office With “Culturally Inappropriate” Christmas Tree



Salsberg NJ – Josh Paltrow, senior executive at Techrun Industries, was asked to step down this morning after decorating his office with a Christmas tree, following memo that urged employees to don the offices with inclusive decorations.

The memo was sent out last week and read:

“Dear Employees, 

Please be wary of your diverse group of co-workers and refrain from any holiday decorations unless they are culturally inclusive”

Paltrow was fired by the board of directors the following day. “He did not heed our memo, and now is a time when we cannot afford to get into any political disputes…He was a good worker, but some of the office complained, and we had to do what any company would have done – we let him go” says CEO John Bushman.

Paltrow was unavailable for questioning but we received a picture of him in front of his tree from his blog
