This Thursday, the “$70,000 CEO” Dan Price abruptly resigned from his position as the head of Gravity Payments in the wake of a fresh accusation that he had raped a woman, according to a shocking story.
This week, Price resigned as CEO amid claims that he had grabbed a 26-year-old woman by the throat after she rejected his advances. Price made headlines across the world after he reduced his personal income to $70,000 while raising the minimum wage at the company.
But, according to a report published late on Thursday, Price’s departure came soon after he was asked to comment on a rape allegation.
Price should be charged with raping a victim under the influence of drugs, according to Palm Springs police. In relation to the, the executive has not yet been charged.
A disturbing tale claims that on Thursday, the “$70,000 CEO” Dan Price abruptly resigned from his role as the head of Gravity Payments following a new complaint that he had sexually assaulted a woman.
Price resigned as CEO last week following allegations that he had grabbed a 26-year-old woman by the throat after she turned down his advances. When Price increased the company’s minimum pay while lowering his own income to $70,000, he garnered international attention.
But, according to a report that was released late on Thursday, Price left the company shortly after being prompted to respond to a rape allegation.
He said that his intelligence makes it difficult for him to live in the real world, Margis stated.
Margis went back to the hotel room and ate a cannabis edible once they had finished arguing. She allegedly rejected Price’s effort to start intercourse when he entered the room.
Margis reported to the police that even after she resisted Price’s advances, as she dozed off, she felt him into her. The New York Times said that she “worried he might kill her if she tried to stop him.”
“Did you just rape me?” Margis said she asked Price, who denied he had assaulted her.
Margis texted a friend that she was “shaking so bad and could hardly speak.” She added that Price had “looked me dead in the eyes and said what I know happened didn’t happen.”
The model claimed that it was through Price’s widely shared social media statements supporting corporate responsibility and workers’ rights that she first learnt about him in 2020. In 2020, Price messaged her and wished her a happy Valentine’s day after she liked one of his Instagram photos.
When contacted about the rape allegation by the New York Times, Price denied any wrongdoing and said he “never physically or sexually abused anyone.”
He added that “the other accusations of inappropriate behavior towards women in this story are simply false.”
“My No. 1 priority is for our employees to work for the best company in the world, but my presence has become a distraction here,” Price said. “I also need to step aside from these duties to focus full time on fighting false accusations made against me. I’m not going anywhere.”
Price is currently the target of numerous charges of misbehavior despite having amassed a sizable social media following while promoting workers’ rights.
Another claim is made in the Times article by a fitness instructor from Seattle named Serena Jowers. She claims that Price started watching porn during their third date and then forced her to have sex.
According to Jowers and three other women who talked with the Times, he allegedly filmed them without their permission.
Price’s former girlfriend, who has only been identified as another woman, said that he repeatedly had intercourse with her in the middle of the night without getting her permission.
The report includes further shocking charges, such as the assertion that one of the CEO’s senior lieutenants was really responsible for the proposal to reward Price with a Tesla rather than the company’s employees for his worker-first policy.
5 years ago today our employees bought me a Tesla to thank me for cutting my CEO pay 94% to pay them at least $70k.
Since then I paid them back with raises close to $100k and they paid me back again by growing the company.
Take care of employees and they will take care of you. pic.twitter.com/EglpL4M2oF
