AirAsia CEO Tony Fernandes has once again made headlines, this time with a LinkedIn post following a previous controversial picture that went viral. In the original post, Fernandes shared an image of himself shirtless, receiving a massage during a management meeting, praising the work culture at AirAsia that allowed him such flexibility during a virtual meeting. The post, however, sparked significant backlash, leading to its removal.
While Fernandes did not directly address the controversy, his latest LinkedIn post seems to be a subtle nod to the previous incident. In the post, he mentioned a “busy day” and staying at the office. He highlighted a special outdoor BBQ organized by the AirAsia team, featuring Ikan Bakar.
“Busy day. After all the attention I got and with so much positive stuff going on decided to stay at the office. Allstars did a special outdoor BBQ for me. Fresh Ikan Bakar,” read the post.
