The proud CEO of GoDaddy, Bob Parsons, standing over his Elephant Kill

The proud CEO of GoDaddy, Bob Parsons, standing over his Elephant Kill

Here’s an amazing and horrifying story of what happens when money, power, and ego rule. Bob Parsons, the CEO of GoDaddy decided to spend a small fraction of his considerable wealth to travel to Africa and kill an Elephant. He did it under the guise of “helping” the local farmers. While he may not be a liar, (after all, he is helping them), but really, this is what you want your legacy to be?  With all the wealth, experience, and resources available to him, he could have and should have tried to relocate the Elephants, put up a fence (creating jobs), or deterred them from interfering with human colonized areas some other way.

Instead of CHOOSING to be creative, compassionate, and humane, he CHOSE to simply pull a trigger and end the life of an endangered animal – to satisfy what?  Is it ego, pride, or something else?  He now thinks of himself as a hero!  What inside of Parsons compelled him to take this action?

This is a case of the worst of humanity, a single man going out of his way to destroy something beautiful just because he can.  Imagine if Bill Gates or Steve Jobs did this. They wouldn’t. They know better. Gates heads the largest philanthropic fund on the planet, and works tirelessly to improve our world.  Congratulations, Bob, you’ve earned your “Scummiest CEO of the Year Award“.

Shame on you, Dr. Parsons.  I’m CHOOSING to move my domains from GoDaddy.
