Seth Darby added: '"In light of recent events"? Honestly? You write this as if you’ve been the victim of a terrible injustice.

'Where are the public statements from your staff and management condemning your owner and his brutal regime? Not. Good. Enough.'

Accounts - Abuse - Employees - People - Diversity

Explaining that it had chosen to delete the accounts because of abuse directed at its employees, it went on to say that it 'strongly values people and cultural diversity amongst our guests and employees'.

Another user said: 'No staff members should be abused, but have a think about what you said about inclusivity & diversity.

'Let - Nation - Children - People - Death

'Let's be clear, you are funded by a nation where children are whipped and gay people are now stoned to death. Inclusivity, respect, integrity...just keep the cash rolling in...'
