'Shark Tank' Host Kevin O'Leary Says Hims & Hers CEO Should Have Been Fired For Backing Pro-Palestinian Protests

May 07, 2024

In a recent interview, Kevin O’Leary, the host of “Shark Tank,” criticized Andrew Dudum, the CEO of Hims & Hers, for his support of pro-Palestinian student protests. O’Leary suggested that Dudum should have been fired immediately for his stance.

What Happened: O’Leary, a prominent investor and television personality, expressed his disapproval of Dudum’s public support for the pro-Palestinian student protests at American colleges like Columbia University and UCLA, in an interview with Fox Business’ “The Big Money Show” on Monday.

Dudum’s comments, according to O’Leary, were self-serving and harmful to his company’s interests. O’Leary stated that he would have terminated Dudum “seconds after he made those remarks.”

Despite the backlash, Dudum later clarified his stance on social media platform X, emphasizing that there is no justification for violence on campuses. However, O’Leary’s comments underscore the challenges that executives face when dealing with highly contentious political issues.

This isn’t the first time O’Leary has warned about the potential consequences of taking a stand on the Israel-Gaza conflict. In a previous interview, O’Leary suggested that pro-Palestinian student protesters could face difficulties in their future job searches due to advancements in artificial intelligence that allow employers to screen out applicants who participated in the protests.

Why It Matters: The Israel-Gaza conflict has sparked widespread protests and debates, especially on college campuses. This has led to various repercussions, including the termination of employees at Google over protests against the company’s Israeli government cloud contract.

Despite the controversy, some organizations have shown support for those who have taken a stand. The Yemen-based Houthi militia offered a safe haven to students suspended from U.S. universities for their anti-Israel protests, demonstrating the complex and multifaceted nature of this issue.
