Sometimes I’m sorry to be morally certain there is no hell, because there are definitely people who deserve to roast in it for all eternity. Here’s one, via Deadspin, a CEO who was caught on elevator security film abusing a Doberman puppy:
The asshole you see repeatedly kicking and yanking this dog all over the place—at one point lifting the dog up off the ground by the leash—is Desmond Hague, CEO of Centerplate. If you’ve ever been to a sporting event, you’ve probably bought something from him; Centerplate is a food service company that makes the over-priced food in many of the stadiums in North America.
You can see the video at the link. Basically, it shows a heartless prick mistreating a beautiful Doberman puppy who is clearly scared shitless of the asshole at the other end of her leash.
Hague issued a statement saying his behavior was “completely and utterly out of character” and that he was “ashamed and deeply embarassed” by what he had done.
He said a minor frustration with a friend’s dog caused him to lose his composure.
“I have reached out to the SPCA and have personally apologized to the dog’s owner,” he wrote. “At this time, I would like to extend my apology to my family, company and clients, as I understand that this has also reflected negatively on them.”
That’s all bullshit, though, since it turns out the dog is his, and the SPCA found evidence that she’s been serially abused. Man’s inhumanity to man is sickening enough, but I just don’t understand how anyone could treat an innocent puppy that way.
I hope the poor little Dobie gets a good home with a family who will treat her right. And I hope next time Desmond Hague decides to kick a dog, it will be a pit bull who turns around and latches onto his scrotum with a death grip. I also hope Hague loses his fucking job.
