It's been a ROUGH 24 hours for Goodyear…
And that's putting it mildly.
Yesterday, President Trump called for a boycott of Goodyear Tires.
Well, it was revealed that Goodyear banned MAGA hats as well as shirts saying "all lives matter" or "blue lives matter."
The company was accused of not allowing any "controversial" slogans, but they allowed employees to wear "black lives matter."
After Trump called for the boycott, Goodyear issued a statement saying that the accusation was FALSE.
They claimed that diversity trainings never happened and this policy didn't exist…
New audio has leaked.
It is being reported and alleged by multiple sources that this audio comes from the very diversity training class that Goodyear claims didn't happen.
Whatever the case, this does NOT look good for Goodyear, especially if the audio turns out to be genuine.
If so, this means that the company LIED!
Listen to the audio for yourself below:
For reference, here is a screenshot of the statement that Goodyear issued.
In the statement, the company claimed that the content of the diversity training did not come from corporate.
Will Goodyear acknowledge the audio?
Will they issue another statement?
More details from local NBC 15 News:
New audio from the training at the Topeka Goodyear plant gives more details about what was talked about in that meeting, including updates on their zero-tolerance policy.
The meeting has come into question after a photo of a slide showed what is and isn’t acceptable in the workplace.
13 NEWS-WIBW obtained an audio recording of the presentation. The speaker referenced instances of racial graffiti in the locker room, and detailed what is and is not allowed under the company’s zero-tolerance policy.
“Some people may wish to express their views on social justice or inequity or equity issues such as black lives matter or LGBTQ pride on their face coverings, shirts or wristbands. That will be deemed approved because it applies with a zero-tolerance stance,” the speaker said during the meeting. “However if any associate wears all, blue, white lives matter shirts or face coverings, that will be not appropriate.”
The unidentified speaker says the rules were created to make a better work environment.
“The rules around now what you can wear. Let’s try and comply with these so you know everybody feels good in this factory. I want to make sure guys, think about what we do in this factory, in this factory right. We all work together to make tires that’s what we do. That’s what we get paid to do. So, let’s continue to do that and do the right thing and keep this place what it has always been, a good place to work,” the speaker said.
The speaker does not specifically mention the Donald Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ slogan shown on the slide, but did say political campaigns are a no-go.
“Democrat. Republican. Trump. Biden. Sanders. Whatever. That will no longer be allowed in the plant,” he listed off.
The photo has since gained national attention including an acknowledgement from President Donald trump calling for a boycott on the company’s tires.
Ironically, liberals created "cancel culture" to go after conservatives.
It turns out that this is a two way street.
"Woke" companies can also be canceled.
Let the market decide!
