He does look like he could chow down a ton of egg rolls.

Where is the class action lawsuit from the theatergoers to get their money back?

QFT. Apple is giving jobs to tens of thousands of people who stand in line for the jobs because they would otherwise have to do backbreaking farm labor.

Daisey is using them to line his own pockets - and giving them nothing in return. In fact, by steering people away from Apple, the customers are likely to be buying products where the employees are treated worse.

Dear AppleInsider,

People in this post are railing on this guy Daisey and call him all sorts of nasty things but I post this in another post:

Quote:
That is rather offensive.

Special needs children are infinitely more intelligent.

and you give me an infraction.

Either you are currently getting RSI writing infraction notices for this lot or you are a hypocrite.

Not that I condone Daisey's actions though.

I like Apple products as much as anyone and I think Daisey should pay professionally for his lies. But no, Apple should not be the one to perform the slap down. Because then Apple becomes the bully, instead of the victim.

There's no need for the vituperation. I think this is the end of this guy's career in legitimate mainstream theater*. Oh, they won't hang him out to dry. Some will even say nice things about him to defend him but the gigs will dry up after this one. He'll just be toxic material that's all. Legit non-profit theaters have a hard enough time raising funds from corporations and wealthy donors, it'll be even harder if they are associated with this guy who will forever be known as the guy who lied. Repeatedly, brazenly and profitably. Prominent donors give lots of money because they want to smell good. There's no smelling good if your name is linked to this guy's.

*Well, except maybe if he writes a new monologue entitled "The Agony and the Ecstasy of Being Me".

Refunds for anybody who saw his show would probably be a good start...

There's no question it can be fun. Daisey was having a blast until it was widely known he was being a dick.

He still has to apologize to Apple, Foxconn, the workers, people he suckered in who care about the workers, and everybody who buys Apple stuff and then has to deal with the fallout of his delusional guilt trip. Oh, and to Steve Jobs and his family. Then maybe he can hit bottom.

He's still in free-fall. A more unpleasant landing can't be imagined.

What has happened to that petition that was set up blasting Apple for working conditions?

It was pretty much in reaction to this guy's "work".

As a long time stock holder of AAPL, and what it did and could have potentially done to MY money, there aren't enough words, personal or legally to call this idiot. He's lucky he doesn't walk on my street. People like him who have zero self esteem need to fill the gaping hole in their ego with attention seeking. He should work on losing some weight and feeling better about himself. If it's a hormone thing, I apologize. Right.

They would sue Daisy even if Daisy was telling the truth. Having blatantly lied it will be interesting to see Apple's response.

I hope they take the high versus Samsung's suing the poor bloke who merely wrote the truthful about a company hell bent on domination, often through particularly anti-human, anti-controlled corporate means.

THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY OF STEVE JOBS

Now that he's apologized to everyone aside from the company and individuals he slandered, Mike Daisey continues to grotesquely capitalize on his lies and fabrications regarding America's most mysterious technology icon in this hilarious and harrowing total fiction of pride, beauty, lust, and blatant deception. He illuminates how an unsuspecting dead guy and his obsessions can be the target of a cruel misanthrope and alleged "artist", while sharing stories of his own travels to China and a bunch of other bullsnot he just made up. Daisey's mildly inconvenient journey shines a light on our love affair for scandal and the human cost of apologizing for them. The New York Times had no idea what they were talking about when they hailed Mike Daisey as "the master storyteller", but he's certainly a real piece of work.

Brilliant!

You should email it to Mr Daisy so he can use it!

I don't get it. On viewing a Daisey clip way back before NPR, way back before Real Time, I saw a carpet bagger who was quite obviously screwing the truth while picking Apple because it brought him attention. Secondarily, his own problems are showing through his act.

How is it that anybody had any faith in his BS, or took him seriously, at all? Daisey isand wasa damaged item.

Suddenly the revelation that he was a fraud becomes Big News? Next, you will be saying that Rush Limbaugh had a bunch of sane, appropriate ideas over the years.

I say, when it looks like a Beck, quacks like a Beck and waddles like a Beck; it's a Beck.

You really think Apple want a court to go through what parts of Daisey's commentary were true or not?

The conversation on the street goes something like this now...

Person 1: "So how about those horrible work conditions in China? It really makes me think of the impact of my 1st world purchases"
Person 2: "Oh, didn't you hear? That Daisey guy made it all up. Everything is actually fine. BTW he is really fat"

There'a an interesting story about that.

Change.org had a petition up that was full of outright lies and got several hundred thousand signatures. Then, after receiving all the signatures, they changed the wording of the petition to remove some of the more obvious lies, but the content was dramatically changed. Yet they submitted the petition as if everyone had agreed to the new wording.

Then, someone created a petition at change.org demanding that they remove the old petition because it was based on obvious lies. Change.org removed this petition rather than correct their errors.

Art? What he does is not art, it's BS of the worst smelling kind. These kind of actions should not be tolerated by any business or society.

Either that, or we should go to the show and piss outside the urinals. Why is this theatre even still supporting him?
