GoDaddy CEO Slaughters Endangered Elephant, Posts Video, Wrecks GoDaddy’s Brand

GoDaddy CEO Bob Parson’s relishes being a polarizing figure with his tits-and-ass fake controversy approach to selling commodity services like domain registration, advocating for torture and now posting a video of him killing an endangered elephant while vacationing in Zimbabwe. PETA and other animal advocacy groups are changing their registrars and NamesCheap is making a mint with a $5 transfer special with 20% going to SaveTheElephants.org. I pity the marketing/PR department having to deal with this kind of craziness. But then again if you’re PR at this company you have to expect this kind of backlash.
