The Unbalanced Being of the Day | Brian Cullinan
Do you know who Brian Cullinan is? Well, you do now. He’s the PricewaterhouseCoopers partner that handed the wrong envelope to Warren Beatty the other night at the Academy Awards. And now he’s been singled out by the company he works for.
This stuff really gets me angry. PricewaterhouseCoopers is a very large organization and is big enough to handle a very tiny blip on their radar, yet they couldn’t take the blame themselves. They obviously felt the need to single out the exact person whom was at fault in this situation. Poor, Brian Cullinan. Honestly, he made a mistake, yet now the company he has sweated his guts out for has just thrown him under the bus in a very public way……. Shame on them.
There was no need to bring attention back to the mishap by laying blame on this one person. It’s a moment that was already forgotten by the new news of the day, yet they felt the need to still save face.
To quote PwC “PwC takes full responsibility for the series of mistakes and breaches of established protocols during last night’s Oscars. PwC partner Brian Cullinan mistakenly handed the back-up envelope for Actress in a Leading Role instead of the envelope for Best Picture to presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. Once the error occurred, protocols for correcting it were not followed through quickly enough by Mr. Cullinan or his partner.”
Does this sound like they are taking the blame? Not at all. They laying it all on poor Brian Cullinan. Tsk Tsk.
We sure don’t want to be him right now.
And that’s why Brian Cullinan is The Unbalanced Being of the Day.
