Former HP CEO Carly Fiornia announced earlier today that she would be running for president — but it appears someone else has already picked up one of the domains for her name and is pretty upset with her.
While Fiorina’s public campaign website is carlyforpresident.com, someone picked up the carlyfiorina.org domain and posted a page of 30,000 sad faces for all the people that she laid off at HP. (Carlyfiorina.com still redirects to carlyforpresident.com.)
“That’s 30,000 people she laid off. People with families. And what does she say she would have done differently?”
Fiorina — who will be joining us at TechCrunch Disrupt NY — led HP through one of its most tumultuous times in the middle of the dot com bust. Her campaign site touts her experience at HP, which, to be sure, was a challenging time for any technology company.
Still, it’s quite a stunt and a reminder to follow Taylor Swift’s lead when it comes to buying domain names.
