Fleischer’s, a chain of high-end butcher shops around the New York City area, is temporarily closed after dozens of staff members walked out when the company’s CEO removed Pride flags and Black Lives Matter signs from the stores. People of color and queer people make up about half of the CEO John Adams’s employees. He learned about the consequences of his actions the hard way when three dozen employees walked out. Members of the butcher shops’ staff say Rob Rosania, a major investor in the chain, called Adams after a friend called to complain about a BLM sign that “offended” him. Rosania demanded the sign be removed. Adams complied, traveling to Connecticut and New York City to remove the banners and signs. Staff rebelled, castigating Adams directly and taking their outrage to social media. Adams had promised to bring more “accountability to the company,” and his employees wanted him to know he’d failed in a major way.
