Fritz Henderson's daughter launched F-word rant on Facebook
4 December 2009

The daughter of ousted GM president Fritz Henderson has let the company know what she think's of her dad's treatment via Facebook.

Commenting on GM's official page following her father's abrupt departure, Sarah Henderson wrote: "He f-ing got asked to step down all of you f-ing idiots. I'm Fritz Henderson's daughter, and he did not f-ing resign. Whitacre is a selfish piece of shift, who cares about himself and not the f-ing company. Have fun with GM, I hope to never buy from this God foresaken company again. F- all of you."

The comments were removed shortly after being posted.

What an utterly charming young lady she must be.

Wellcome to the real world, B****!

I just wonder what sort of severance pay/ pension conditions are awarded to ex GM executives, which is more than can be said for the vast majority of people getting their pink slip these days......

great girl Sarah.

you stood up for your father; you told the truth - he, your father, was sacked, not he resigning.

you know and your father knows Whitacre is an ass. he knows nothing of the auto industry. he wears as a badge of honour that he never used a computer or sent an email in all the time as CEO of a telecoms company.

Whitacre was appointed by Obama/Obama's Auto Queen Czar. He's a political appointee intent on kicking ass to show who's boss, to the detriment of the company, GM, and only for his personal pride.

Sarah Henderson restores one's faith in the ballsyness of at least some Americans and their willingness to tell it as it is, not toe the party line.

power to your elbow Sarah.

It's quite right that he should take home what he's worth. Just as the factory workers will. Neither are more noble than the other. Doesn't make it any fairer that he goes just cos he gets paid more, or do you resent people who get paid more than you?

Is he really worth more or simply the product of an environment of oppurtunity?? It really is not that hard to run a car company, yet GM's board have messed up so many times due to their arrogance and incorrect assumptions of what the customer wants. I have no problem with people earning more than me .... but lets face it, this is like bankers moaning about only earning £3million instead of getting the £6million they deserve, forgetting their part in the massive losses incurred through their greed and stupidity, or in the case of GM their arrogance and inability to make a decent car.

No, but like most, when we see the determination of those who have mismanaged us into this mess to hang on to every penny of bonus they no longer deserve it's hard not to get angry.

I have never worked as hard as I have this year driving through efficiencies and diversifacion programs. I have had to tell hard working professionals with families and mortgages to hand in their laptops, company mobile phones and cars. My reward was no annual bonus, a pay freeze and an instruction not to use my own car for company business because that costs the company 40p per mile (which was a major motovator for opting out of the company car scheme in the first place) but to use the cars of whoever in the office can spare their company car that day (if no car is availible there's always a nice Doblo van in the yard if I'm stuck).

As my employer (as have most construction companies) has seen profits slashed in the past year I don't resent my situation. I don't resent my employers enjoying the fruits of a well run, profitable business either, but what I do resent is the board of directors continuing to pay themselves big bucks as if nothing has happened.

If they keep it up people are going to start wondering "where are the Brigate Rosse when we need them and what Italian car has the biggest boot these days?"

Agree. Whatever the circumstances if my daughter went online (not likely as she's 4) and produced a tirade of filth like that I'd be thoroughly ashamed of her.

And we KNOW it was really her because....

I could have posted as her, who would've known?
