Foxconn boss fumes over vulgar retort from smoking employee

An outburst by Terry Gou, chairman of Taiwan-based Foxconn Technology Group, captured in a video clip went viral in Taiwan on Tuesday, Apple Daily reported, citing Radio France Internationale.

In the clip, which lasts only a few seconds, Gou, who heads the world’s largest contract electronics manufacturer by revenue and one of Apple Inc.’s chief suppliers, scolds two employees at Foxconn’s Longhua factory in Shenzhen after seeing them smoke in a non-smoking zone outside an employee cafeteria.

One of the two men says to Guo: “Who are you? It’s none of your fxxxing business.”

Guo, who is famous for his A-type personality, becomes even more furious.

He is heard saying to a supervisor standing at the scene that Foxconn does not need an employee like this one.

Guo tells the supervisor, “If you don’t deal with him, it will be you who will be punished.”

Some netizens said after watching the clip that the employee deserved the scolding for not recognizing the boss.
