Earlier this week, we brought you (more) stories of just how disliked the iconic guitar company Gibson is by employees and customers alike. If you work at Guitar Center, do not share this story! Or else!
The following email was sent out by a Guitar Center district manager yesterday.

Subject: Negative Gibson article currently on social media...
Team – it has been brought to my attention that there is currently a very, very negative article on gawker.com about Gibson, and also [CEO] Henry [Juszkiewicz] himself. Just to remind everyone that Gibson is one of our biggest vending partners, and any associate sharing this article could potentially violate our GC Internet policy. Let’s just avoid a potential issue, and make sure that our people understand and know our Internet policy. Thank you.
