Tech CEO Michael Lofthouse steps down after being filmed hurling racist insults at an Asian family | Forbes

The CEO of a big tech company was caught harassing a family inside a restaurant with racial slurs. Michael Lofthouse stepped down from his role of CEO of the IT company Solid8, confirmed on Saturday. He said in a statement that this decision was a result of his racist actions and that he does not want his actions to affect others in the company. Some of the comments made towards the family included “Trump’s gonna f*ck you” and “You need to f*cking leave you Asian piece of shit”. This was all caught on video and since then Lofthouse has tried to apologize for his actions. There has been a rise of racism towards Asian people since COVID-19 started in Wuhan.
