Here’s Why Simu Liu Is Thanking His Former Employer For Firing Himjessie tan
Simu Liu is giving a big shout out to his former employer on social media.
The Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings star took to Instagram, thanking the employer who laid him off.
Simu revealed that April 11, 2011 was the day that he was laid off from a corporate job, which in turn, opened up a new line of work for him in acting.
“Ten years ago to the day, I was led into my managing partner’s office at Deloitte and told that they were terminating my employment effective immediately,” he shared in the caption of his original tweet. “A lady from HR and a security guard escorted me back onto the floor in front of the entire open concept office.”
Simu added, “Ten years ago I thought my life was over. I had wasted countless time and money that my family had invested in me. Years of schooling, gifted programs, trying to live up to my parents’ expectations. It all came crashing down in an instant.”
He concluded his story, “To Paul Gibbon and the offices of Deloitte Toronto; sincerely, honestly, THANK YOU. You did for me what I never had the courage to do myself; you destroyed a life that I was building for someone else, so that I could finally begin to build a life for me.”
Just recently, Simu opened up about a voicemail that Marvel co-star Tom Holland left for him.
