Gawker, one of our favorite blogs, has a fantastic story about a really sick dude, possibly one of the worst dudes out there (read it here). Seems this guy, Ping Jiang (I’m not making that up, it’s a real name), abused the shit out of this DUDE who worked for him, Andrew Tong. Jiang forced Tong “to perform oral sex (in once case as a condition of being allowed to trade); made to take female hormones and dress in feminine attire; and violated in various other ways:
“As part of his “training program, Mr. Jiang set about to systematically bully and control Mr. Tong through obscene sexual ultimatums and physical brutality. By way of example, the following tortious and criminal acts were perpetrated by Mr. Jiang against Mr. Tong at SAC’s very own offices: (a) in or about the beginning of February 2006, Mr. Jiang forced Mr. Tong to perform oral sodomy; (b) in or about the beginning of March 2006, Mr. Jiang committed assault and battery, as well as false imprisonment upon Mr. Tong by restraining him with ropes and forcibly introducing certain foreign objects into Mr. Tong’s rectum; and (c) in or about mid-March 2006, Mr. Jiang again restrained Mr. Tong with ropes and forcibly urinated into his mouth.”
Totally nuts! It may also be interesting that these two and also the corporate counsel involved are all Chinese. Does it have any bearing here? I worked in Asia before and had a boss who was for sure one of the WORST PEOPLE. He was abusive (not in the “pee in your mouth” way, more just verbally) and also Asian. Is this a trend? As Americans, is this a sign of what’s to come with the rise of China? Will we all be working for sick, abusive masters who urinate in our mouths? In my case, I would rather opt for unemployment, but a couple of my pals in Chelsea may be interested in a position with such benefits! — rimshot!
Anyway, seems for sure that though Gawker simply calls this guy “the world’s most heinous (rhymes with anus, children!) boss,” he is also certainly one of the WORST PEOPLE.
Thanks for reading!
