Pro-Palestine CEO Changes Decision After Public Response

CEO and founder of the company Hims & Hers, Andrew Dudum has gotten himself into serious hot water.

As police were raiding college campuses over extremist activity, he was out there saying he would like to hire the protestors.

In his praise, Dudum even provided a link for protesters to apply for a job with his company. Following the hiring announcement, his company’s stock saw an 8% slide as criticism started rolling in.

“Moral courage > College degree,” he wrote on X.

“If you’re currently protesting against the genocide of the Palestinian people & for your university’s divestment from Israel, keep going. It’s working. There are plenty of companies & CEOs eager to hire you, regardless of university discipline,” he added alongside the Hims job openings link.

As his stock started taking a hit and the backlash flooded his social media account Dundum “apologized.”

“The last few days have been a disheartening reflection of just how divisive a time we live in,” Dudum began. “I’d like to clarify a few things because my words have been misconstrued by some.”

“I, in no way condone nor support acts or threats of violence, antisemitism, or intimidation and there is absolutely no justification for violence on our campuses,” he continued. “Every student deserves to feel safe without fear of harm or being targeted for who they are. I am deeply saddened that my support for peaceful protest has been interpreted by some as encouraging violence, intimidation, or bigotry of any kind.”

“As a father whose children are both the descendants of Palestinian refugees who fled the Nakba in 1948, and the descendants of Holocaust survivors from Poland, as I have previously shared, I have a personal appreciation for the different perspectives people have which I live with daily at my dinner table,” he said. “I hope and pray for peace and for an end to violence everywhere.”

The one thing he didn’t do was condemn Haamas and demand any hostages be released.
