Rumor: Big Viacom Layoffs Coming This Thursday


Here we go again. A tipster at Viacom sends us this: “Big layoffs are supposed to come down Thursday and Friday for all of Viacom I’m told.”

Awesome news. Now all of that holiday shopping that Viacom employees did on Black Friday — back when they thought they still had jobs — can send them careening into massive credit card debt. Were they hoping we were all still in tryptophan-induced comas and wouldn’t notice?

We’re currently trying to get Viacom PR flack Jeremy Zweig to confirm the rumor, but anyone with more scoop, drop a line to tips [at] flavorpill [dot] com.
