The CEO of HyperSocial, Braden Wallake, posted a picture of himself crying on LinkedIn showing the compassion he has for his employees that he unfortunately had to lay off

The CEO of HyperSocial, Braden Wallake, posted a picture of himself crying on LinkedIn showing the compassion he has for his employees that he unfortunately had to lay off. In his post, it expressed it was his fault he had to fire them, but he felt really bad about it.

“This will be the most vulnerable thing I'll ever share,” Wallake wrote on LinkedIn Tuesday. “Days like today, I wish I was a business owner that was only money driven and didn't care about who he hurt along the way. But I'm not. So, I just want people to see, [sic] that not every CEO out there is cold-hearted and doesn't care when he/she have to lay people off. I'm sure there are hundreds and thousands of others like me.”

Many people felt that the post was insensitive, while others championed Braden for showing his vulnerability. Braden says he was just trying to show the other side of being a CEO.

“I was just sitting here at my desk, just kind of crying, I guess, and decided to make the post because I have seen a lot on LinkedIn recently of how awful business owners and CEOs are for laying off their employees and that they're laying off employees while they're getting their third house in the Bahamas or wherever,” Wallake said. “There's a lot of other business owners out there who are letting people go,” he continued. “And it's not because they're padding their own profits, but it's how their business is. And they may have done a lot and I just wanted to kind of put it out there that it's not all just profit-hungry, rich businesses who are making layoffs, and there are normal people behind many layoffs as well.”

The two employees that were laid off say that Braden was a great boss, and they weren’t sad to be fired
