In case you haven't seen the video yet or heard the story that was a trending topic on Google, GoDaddy CEO Bob Parsons posted a video from his Twitter account of himself killing an elephant in Zimbabwe.
The video shows the damage elephants caused by trampling a farmer’s field. Bob Parsons and his fellow hunters are shown waiting at night for the elephants to return. Then Parsons shoots and kills one of the elephants. In the next shot, dozens of villagers then come to pick off the elephant’s meat.
With all of Parson's wealth and notoriety, the best cause he can do to help humanity is killing an elephant?
Parsons has defended his actions and states that he believes that the controversy will actually increase sales despite the fact that he has been named the "Scummiest CEO of the Year" by PETA and other animal advocates.
This action comes on the heels of a growing frustration I've had with GoDaddy's service and the increasing difficulty in navigating their site and renewing domain names while trying to avoid all of their add-ons and multiple-year service requests. Even though I was a long-term customer of Go-Daddy and an affiliate that promoted their services on my various websites, I am in the process of moving all 100+ of the domain names that my company owns or manages and will not be making further purchases with this company.
