Chris Dovi Stabbed By Goldman And Associates For Shady PR Win

lolGoldman and Associates, the PR firm that just got a reporter fired from the Richmond, VA Style Weekly, is feeling that warm, winning feeling. The reporter, Chris Dovi, misfired an email to the PR person he was bitching about instead of to his boss. Jason Roop, the editor in chief with no spine, fired him, because Dovi USED A SWEAR WORD-Dovi referred to the PR person's client as "this blind fucker." Here's Chris Dovi's piece on a local transgender cop getting fired, a recent piece on gentrification and abuses of the community complaint system and one on the local Hasid population. He's available for work, you know-and he could use a better editor!-since he was crucified by Goldman and Associates for his "sad and telling example of the prejudice" that blind people face, in exchange for some free attention. That is lame. OH GOD SORRY, DON'T HURT ME, I JUST MEANT IT WAS REALLY GAY. Update: Dovi responds!

In summary, some fucker accidentally complained about the blind fucker to a PR fucker who ratted the fucker out to the Fucker-in-Chief who then fucked the fucker over. Fuck! Glad I don't work at Style fucking Weekly.

Those PR fuckers sure look like a bunch of sorry fuckers. No accident that the first two letters of the word "pricks" are…yes.

If Chris Dovi is prejudiced at all it's against fuckers, motivational speakers and PR people who don't quit pestering you after you've told them no.

Dovi for President.

their watch movement graphic is wrong. the balance wheel rotates over 180 degrees back and forth. it doesn't unlock one tick at a time in the same direction. who made that watch, a retard?

Woo a story about my hometown!

Too bad it's such a depressing story. Ohhh well.

Oh, also, the Goldman page has been taken down. Did anyone save Dovi's response?

Two things. First, I work in PR and my entire office spent the afternoon talking about what douchebags the Goldman people are. Second: The Blind guy, Will Weeks has weighed in: Weeks, the motivational speaker, says Dovi's language in the e-mail, which Goldman forwarded him yesterday, "reinforced the notion to me that there's a culture set in place at Style Weekly." I'm going to go ahead and say that guy is, in fact, a fucker. I would call him disingenuous, but I found an article about him and do you know what one of his childhood challenges were? A teacher once walked into a classroom whistling Three Blind Mice. At least he has the PR firm he deserves.
