Daughter Of Resigned GM CEO Attacks New GM CEO On Facebook

Illustration for article titled Daughter Of Resigned GM CEO Attacks New GM CEO On Facebook

Sarah Henderson, daughter of Fritz Henderson, the just-resigned-minutes-ago GM CEO, posted some choice words about Ed Whitacre, the random white guy taking her dad's place at the top of the just-emerged-from-bankruptcy automaker, on the automaker's public Facebook page!

Now don't get us wrong — we feel for Sarah, but when you pop them up in public in a place like GM's public page, well, all bets are off. Plus, comments like Ed Whitacre being "selfish" help us to understand the new interim CEO just a little bit more. Here's the full text:

"HE FUCKING GOT ASKED TO STEP DOWN ALL OF YOU FUCKING IDIOTS. IM FRITZ'S FUCKING DAUGHTER, AND HE DID NOT FUCKING RESIGN. WHITACRE IS A SELFISH PIECE OF SHIFT, WHO CARES ABOUT HIMSELF AND NOT THE FUCKING COMPANY. HAVE FUN WITH GM, I HOPE TO NEVER BUY FROM THIS GOD FORESAKEN COMPANY EVERY AGAIN. FUCK ALL OF YOU."

But, it's not like we can blame the kid — we'd be pretty pissed at Ed Whitacre too if he were selfish and wanting to run Government Motors all by himself. (Hat tip to highmileage!)

DISCUSSION

Okay, now that we're hopefully done sensationalizing here, maybe we can ease off just a little bit and provide a little empathy.

Losing a job doesn't just affect you, it affects those around you, including your family. Obviously, she has empathized with her father quite a bit, and is aware of certain injustices that we are not.

And on the note of injustices, Whitacre really is a dick. It wouldn't surprise me if there were some dirty corporate politics at play here on his part. It was people who have the same mentality as Whitacre that got GM into the crappy position that it was in, and it will be Whitacre who screws the company and its customers.

I agree with everyone else that that was a childish and foolish display on the part of young Ms. Henderson; but I don't blame her, and I understand why she is so upset. In truth, had I been in her place, being privy to so much of what is going on at the "new" GM behind closed doors, and having a better of idea of what was really happening than a bunch of bloggers such as myself, I would have been equally upset.

I have been an ardent GM fanboy throughout the carpocalypse, and defended them to no end. Now that Whitacre is at the reigns, I have lost all hope, and can no longer muster the will to support GM.

I'll be over in the Ford bar if anyone needs me.
