My Thoughts: Maybe I’m naive, but I seriously doubt these allegations. And even Spiegel did say this, it was years ago and he was really not much more than a kid (hell, he’s only 26 now).
Let’s stop crucifying people for mistakes they made in the past. And even moreso, let’s stop rounding up our mobs around what at the very most is unsubstantiated hearsay.
I don’t know if the guy said it or not. If he did, it was dumb – but it’s not like it’s a representation of the company itself. He’s entitled to his own opinion, as stupid as it might be.
Besides, if Spiegel really is an idiot like these allegations would allude to, chances are he’ll make a more public mistake soon enough.
