Gurbaksh "G" Chahal's once-good name — after earning his millions by age 25, he appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show — is once again being dragged through the mud. This time, a lawsuit reported by The Wall Street Journal and Forbes accuses the tech CEO "wunderkind" of even more shocking stupidity, corruption, and (in this case) verbal violence. Allegedly, Chahal threatened to "beat the shit out of" and deport an employee he called a "terrorist" (among other slurs). That employee, the 20-year-old Yousef Khraibut who spent just four months with Chahal's new company, Gravity4, accuses Chahal of spying on him (Chahal allegedly called this "research bro"), pressuring him into taking illegal drugs (Adderral and MDMA), asking him to lie to police, and denying him stock options which he'd been promised.
You may recall Chahal from such recent horror-show scandals as allegedly buying former Mayor Willie Brown for $1 million to make charges of 45 counts of domestic violence "go away." An aside: Brown has admitted to accepting payment from Chahal but insists his assistance of an accused woman-hitting liar was, "under, you know, the canons of ethic." All the while, Chahal has been fighting a lawsuit filed by a female former employee alleging gender discrimination at Gravity 4 — with allegations that sound very similar to this newest set of charges against him. And, amid the recent bribery scandal, Chahal's hearing in another domestic violence case was postponed — another hitting and kicking a girlfriend episode, of course.
Both Gravity 4 plaintiffs are being represented by the Dhillon Law Group in San Francisco. Here's what Chahal has to say about that:
Per the WSJ, with regard to Chahal's young employee, the CEO allegedly "threatened to knock Mr. Khrairbut’s teeth out, stick a knife between his teeth and send someone to beat him up. Mr. Khraibut says he left the country and returned to Canada where he is from 'in fear of his life.'”
But it gets, I don't know, maybe worse? According to Forbes:
At work, Chahal allegedly disparaged female employees and job candidates, saying they got a “pussy pass” if they moved forward in the interview process and passing bikini photos of one candidate around the office. When Khraibut protested, Chahal responded in a Skype chat that it was “research bro.” According to the complaint, he told male employees who were having a hard day that they were “on PMS,” called himself “the Indian Brad Pitt,” made frequent references to his penis, calling it “whipping out the 14 incher,” called Khraibut “a terrorist” and referred to ISIS as his “people.”
Not that, after reading that crap, you'd want to hear from Chahal — like ever again. But just in case you can't get enough of his despicable attitude, he writes in an utterly vapid blog post that you must,
"Ignore the world. Keep doing you. And, eventually it will have no option but to revere what you do best. Life is just a big empty canvas. You create your own art. And, then you decide how to turn it into a masterpiece. Close your eyes and think with your soul. Dream Big. Dream of Greatness. Dream of what defines happiness. Then figure the path that will lead you there, while knowing the difference you are going to make."
Somewhere, if there is a "masterpiece" portrait of Chahal, it's starting to look more like The Picture Of Dorian Gray than "the Indian Brad Pitt," or whatever.
