The woman attempted to order an Uber, and Price suggested waiting in his Tesla until it arrived. Once inside his car, Price allegedly attempted to force a kiss on the woman and grabbed her throat when she pushed him away. Documents say the woman told police he became "incredibly angry," and his demeanor completely changed.

According to documents, Price then drove the woman to a North Seattle parking lot and did "donuts" with his car before attempting to kiss her again.

Bummer if that guy is a creep - it seems impressive and laudable what he’s done at his company.

No, it's not impressive at all. Outsourcing all of your entry level work so you can boast that your minimum pay is $70k is not impressive. It's fucking pathetic.

This man is outraged at globalization! He won’t take it anymore!

Swing and miss. I have no problem with outsourcing work and my business does it quite a bit. 

But trying to claim moral superiority over your "minimum pay" while outsourcing lower-paying tasks is pathetic.

I've never obsessed over this guy like your side has, but didn't he reduce his pay considerably so that he could pay his employees more?

just reading the glassdoor reviews of his company is enough to know he isn't as virtuous as he portrays himself.  He seems to be positioning himself for politics...these allegations should help in that regard.

Dude's been a populist grifting douchebag for years, leveraging his single-story newsworthiness to sell his popularity and his book.

He had a big lawsuit against his brother who was co-owner of the company.  He had paid himself exorbitantly relative to the size of the company.  One plausible rationale was he increased the staff pay to reduce the profitability / opex margins of the company to reduce the valuation and the cost to buy out his brother.  At the same time, his ex wife had accused him of domestic violence, so this wasn't his first go-around.

Since then, dude's been riding his fame making stupid clickbait claims on social media ala elizabeth warren about things like the great Big Oil Price Conspiracy, and doing the live talk tour.  Didn't seem as much as a CEO as he was a self-promoter.  Good riddance.

This guy is well known to be a media/attention-seeking narcissist whose "$70k min. wage" was something he used for his own ego and glory (and use it he did-- at every turn and with every breath) and it was whispered he had a pattern of past abusive behavior. Clearly there was some truth to those allegations.

If all you knew was his quipy tweets or linkedin posts I can see how you'd probably think it was cool. But that tells me you don't follow hilarious twitter accounts, like the one that makes fun of Dan Price daily.

So then why does people like @incredulity hate him? Seems like someone he would worship.
