The story of female CEO Nancy Silberkleit of Archie Comics scaring her employees sounds way too out there to be true. But on the other hand, could anyone make this stuff up?
The report says several employees complained about Silberkleit’s vile antics, which include asking if sex toys were stored in an office safe and saying, “I need to adjust my balls.”
She has also burst into meetings to rant about male private parts, according to a letter sent to her co-CEO Jon Goldwater.
“On April 20, 2011, \[Silberkleit\] walked into your office again and referring to a book yelled out ‘PENIS, PENIS, PENIS, PENIS’ and then said, “My balls hurt.”
The suit accuses the comics big of “inappropriate behavior” and says several employees are fearful of her “erratic” behavior and her bullying.
They must be pretty serious, they’re in a lawsuit trying to bar her from coming into the office or going to a comic convention.
My question is how does someone this nuts keep her job? Was she always this weird, or did she just snap one day? How long has this been going on?
At any rate, I’ll never think of Archie comics the same way again.
