Well, we knew there had to be some consequences for that huge F*CK UP! Especially when the whole world is watching…
Brian Cullinan and Martha Ruiz, the two accountants from PricewaterhouseCoopers, were relieved of their duties and are banned from working the Academy Awards ever again following the Best Picture announcement fiasco, Academy president Cheryl Boone Issacs told the Associated Press on Wednesday
Cullinan has caught the most flack, because he handed Beatty the wrong envelope and was said to have been tweeting moments before the mix up, even when both accountants were specifically told not to at the award show. Cullinan deleted all of the pictures on his Twitter account related to the Oscar’s night, but ya know….once it’s on the internet, it’s there FOREVER.
A PwC spokesperson said both Cullinan and Ruiz are still partners in the firm.
PwC also revealed that personal information and the pictures of the homes of Cullinan and Martha Ruiz were posted online. The company said it was providing security to protect them and their families.
Now, who in the hell are threatening these people??? IDIOTS! It’s not like they were conspiring with Russian officials to take down the country or anything….
