AirAsia boss Tony Fernandes slammed for having half-naked massage during meeting

AirAsia boss Tony Fernandes slammed for having half-naked massage during meeting

The AirAsia CEO Tony Fernandes posted the pic of himself getting a half-naked massage on LinkedIn

AirAsia boss Tony Fernandes has been slammed after posting a picture of himself receiving a massage during a meeting on social media.

Having a massage during a meeting is a very unusual thing to do at the best of times, but doing that and then posting it on social media is another thing altogether.

However, that’s exactly what the airline chief and former Queens Park Rangers owner has done, before deleting the post, presumably after a moment of clarity.

Sharing his story on business networking social media site LinkedIn, Fernandes seemed to be saying that the fact he could get a half-naked massage during a meeting was indicative of the great culture in the AirAsia workplace.

Here's the picture Tony Fernandes shared.

We’d all like a lovely massage sometimes after a hard day at work, but during one?

Imagine being the person who isn’t having a massage in this situation as well.

How would you feel about that?

On LinkedIn, Fernandes said: "Got to love Indonesia and AirAsia culture that I can have a massage and do a management meeting.”

As you can probably imagine, the reaction was probably not what he was expecting.

One person called the scene ‘unprofessional’ and another said that it was ‘inappropriate and absurd’.

"He should be setting an example of good work ethics and culture, not flaunting his body and privilege," the comments read.

Someone else simply wrote: "Some CEOs need to stay off LinkedIn."

Not everyone was critical of Fernandes’ post, though.

One person said that it was a great example of how ‘working from home’ should always be.

Perhaps, but there are still limits.

He also doesn’t appear to be at home, but that’s not really the point either.

The 59-year-old has always had a somewhat eccentric attitude, and is well known around the world.

He was educated at Epsom College – one of the most expensive schools in the United Kingdom - and bought up AirAsia from the Malaysian government in a deal worth less than a single dollar in 2001.

Since then, he’s also founded a Formula One team, Caterham F1, although that is no more.

He was also the majority shareholder at QPR until July this year when he sold up.

LADbible has contacted AirAsia for a comment.
