CEO Matt Maloney’s email Wednesday said he rejects Trump’s “nationalist, anti-immigrant and hateful politics” and that anyone who disagrees should immediately resign “because you have no place here.”
In a tweet Thursday that was later deleted, Maloney said: “Grubhub does not tolerate hate and we are proud of all our employees — even those who voted for Trump.”READ MORE: Family Of 'Kind Hearted, Caring' Man Slain In Oak Lawn Question Robbery As Motive In 'Senseless' Crime
