Chapter 105 She’s Truly His “Good Sister!”
Titus read through the Facebook post and evidence shared by the verified influencer they had personally trained. Taking his assistant’s advice, he didn’t get angry, and he didn’t throw his phone away this time around, Instead, he slumped in his chair with frustration.
“Is it true that the tech department can’t recover this account?” he asked. The assistant sensed that something was off with the boss, but it wasn’t hard for him to make sense of it. After all, they had lost miserably this time. Previously, his boss had been extremely arrogant after he thought that he had predicted Simone’s strategy for redeeming herself. Who would have expected Simone to take such an unusual path? She didn’t even attempt to clear up the accusations through manipulation or deception. Instead, she used the most advantageous evidence to counterattack.
Who could have imagined that Simone would find someone to expose the verified influencer account they had nurtured and even use it to clear Fiona’s name? An apology from the verified influencer account had a much greater impact than using other marketing accounts. to expose evidence.
The key was that Simone and her team were adept at playing the victim card. They allowed. their opponents to throw dirt and set the rhythm, letting the tension reach its peak before counterattacking. Fans and bystanders who didn’t understand the situation could only sympathize with Fiona. On the other hand, they felt utter disgust toward the two people that. the boss had brought with him.
The company’s operations team had spent a significant amount of money in the
in the past few days. They had to do some unlawful work in order to help Simone clear up Fiona’s name.. Anyone, the boss especially, would be furious to hear about this.
The boss messaged the tech department to inquire about this matter.
The tech department said they can’t recover it, the department head replied. “This account is useless from now on.”
Judging from the last sentence on Facebook, this account would no longer expose anything. So, not only did Simone counterattack the boss, but she also rendered useless the account that the company had invested a lot of money and effort into developing. Titus clenched his phone as he trembled with anger. He found it even more difficult to accept this fact. Not only had he lost, but everything he had done before had also served as a stepping stone for Simone.
He wouldn’t believe it if one were to tell him that she hadn’t planned it all out in advance.
This the first time in his life that he had been so blatantly shamed and embarrassed, and it was all at the hands of his own sister. He rembered the day Simone left home resolutely. He had spoken harshly to her and their family, thinking that it would make her come back
Now, not only did he feel embarrassed and hurt, but he
noticed how ironic the situation
“Boss, the operations team is asking about how we should handle the public relations, Titus assistant said. The operations team had never expected Simone to make this move, and they
were at a loss.
Simone hadn’t just exposed evidence to clear Fiona’s name, but they also gradually released. evidence of the poor character of those two individuals. If they didn’t do damage control with the public, the two cash cows in the boss‘ hands would also be ruined.
Titus let out a self–deprecating chuckle. “How can we salvage this? Let’s make sure they don’t embarrass themselves any further. They’re a bunch of useless people. I don’t know why we keep them around,”
This was the operations team he had pushed so hard for, and now he felt a pang of regret. After all, Simone and the team that they discarded had successfully fought back this time. The more he thought about it, the angrier he became.
All of a sudden, Titus felt a sharp pain in his chest. He coughed up some blood.
“Boss, are you okay?” His assistant was startled.
Reuben walked in just in time to witness this scene. “You vomited blood because of this?” he asked with his brows furrowed. Isn’t Titus‘ mental resilience a little too.. fragile?
Titus wiped his mouth with a tissue before speaking expressionlessly. “I’ve been holding it in for so long, and it’s all coming out now.” He didn’t want to admit that he vomited blood because of his sister.
After the assistant left at Reuben’s request, Reuben approached Titus. “The company’s shareholders just called me and asked for an explanation from you regarding this matter.”
“Are you referring to the entertainment company’s shareholders or the group’s shareholders?” Titus asked.
The entertainment company, Reuben replied. Then, he changed the subject. “But the shareholders of the group will also be dissatisfied with you.”
Previously, his father had already made all the necessary arrangements. Reuben would first become the president of the entertainment company that was under the Gray Group. This would be both a test and an opportunity for him to gain experience. After some time, he
o be transferred to the headquarters and eventually take over Cray Group. After he left,
younger brother would then take over the reins of the entertainment company.
However, his younger brother didn’t just fail to showcase some impressive results. He even fell victim to a few consecutive attacks from their own sister. This would make the
shareholders of the group company have a negative perception of Titus and might event leave an impression that Reuben was incapable of being relied upon. This matter would end
having some impact on him, of course.
Titus smirked. “It’s just a marketing failure. There’s nothing to explain to them.”
Reuben furrowed his brows even more. “The company has suffered significant losses this time. The effort put into developing the account was wasted, and those two popular stars in your hands are now useless.”
Before coming here, he had researched and inquired about it. Those two individuals who were exposed this time would never be able to recover.
“More importantly, Simone’s team is the one in control now, and the company’s reputation has been greatly damaged because of this,’ he added. “Now, the official Facebook page of the company has been taken over by Simone and Fiona’s fans and all sorts of bystanders. There have been a lot of online rumors about our company’s artists‘ characters, suggesting that they’re problematic. Some people are even asking for a boycott of our company’s artists and demanding an explanation from us. With this chain reaction, it can be predicted that our company’s stocks will definitely drop significantly tomorrow.”
Due to this intense uproar on the Internet, the reputation and interests of the company had been directly impacted. The shareholders were definitely angry and would certainly demand an explanation from both Reuben and Titus.
Titus felt an urge to puke again. “Simone truly lives up to the Grays‘ name–she’s as ruthless as us,” he hissed through gritted teeth. Not only did she embarrass him and ruin his reputation, but she also forced the company to hold him accountable.
Great, she’s truly my good sister“! he thought.
Reuben hadn’t expected Simone to be so ruthless and accurate with her calculated actions. “I warned you about this. She’s not that simple. I told you not to underestimate her,” he said.
However, his younger brother was overly confident and refused to listen to him.
Titus expression darkened. “Indeed, I must admit, I underestimated her once again. Tell me, Reuben. What should I do?”
Reuben pondered for a moment. The company will publicly announce the suspension of your managerial position to provide an explanation to the public. The two artists under your thanagement will be terminated.”
wir actions had already violated the terins of the contract. Therefore, the company was ble to dismiss them outrightly, and the other party would have to pay a penalty for
breaching the contract
Titus sneered. “Hah! Is the company using me as a scapegoat to appease public anger? Simone really executed her plan perfectly.”
At that moment, he suddenly understood the feeling of being criticized and boycotted by the entire internet. He understood the pressure of public opinion forcing him to take action–it was as uncomfortable as cutting out his flesh with a knife.
A year ago, he helped his two artists deal with Fiona. He never anticipated that one day, they would face a backlash twice as strong.
Reuben sighed. “This failure is not entirely a bad thing for you. When the public scrutiny subsides. I will promote you directly to the head of the talent management department. In the meantime, I want you to reflect on the reasons behind your failure and learn from it.”
“Gray Entertainment will be entrusted to you in the future. I hope you won’t disappoint me or your father,” he added with a serious tone.
Titus sneered. “Do I have any other choice?” Obviously not.
Before Reuben could respond, Titus continued speaking. “I understand. Well, coincidentally, I wanted to take a vacation for a while. After saying that, he grabbed his phone and car keys and left the office without hesitation.
