Remember that Harvard Business School jackass we talked about last night who was spending his time and the school’s resources to harass a small business owner. The story gets better and better- after getting a negative reaction from the entire world, he posted an apology on his web page and then emailed an apology to Ran Duan. And then this happened:
According to emails provided to Boston.com by Sichuan Garden’s Ran Duan, Edelman sent three messages to the restaurant’s Yahoo! account on Wednesday afternoon.
First came an email that included an apology.
About an hour later, an email that included an apparent racial slur.
“You may have won the battle, Duan, but at least we can agree your menu is a little less slanty-eyed.
Fifteen minutes later, a final email explaining that the seemingly racist email had been sent accidentially in an effort by Edelman “to make light of the situation to a small group of students.”
So basically, he was sitting around with another group of budding young sociopaths and decided to make a racist joke about the email he wanted to send, and ended up accidentally sending it. Then, in his apology for the racial slur, he tries to blame Duan for not informing him how the website works.
In addition, this is not the first restaurant he has hassled in this way. This guy should probably spend less time emailing restaurants in the next few days and a little more time polishing up his vita.
*** Update ***
Boston.com has retracted the story.
