  8. 8. GoDaddy CEO Kills Elephant Although GoDaddy is accustomed to controversial marketing tactics this incident actually loses customers.CEO Bob Parsons took a video of himself on a hunt in Africa and then proudly tweeted about killing problematic elephants. NGOs like PETA responded swiftly requesting customers shift to new domain registers yet Parsons rebuts them on Twitter. Competitors of GoDaddy offered to donate $1 to elephant funds and reportedly raised over $20,000. It’s so rare, but this incident receives a stronger category rating as actual revenues were directly impacted.
