Offended staff reported Mr Howells to Barclaycard bosses after his gag
A director of Barclaycard has left the company in disgrace after making a joke deemed offensive to Muslims.
Marc Howells, 42, who earned £200,000 a year, was addressing senior executives about the credit card company's quarterly figures when he tried to make them laugh with the quip.
Mr Howells said: "The results were like Muslims - some were good, some were Shi'ite."
Some outraged colleagues forced embarrassed laughs while others were stunned into silence, but Mr Howells seemed unaware of causing any offence.
How do they know it was an "embarassed" laugh. Maybe they were just laughing.
His pun was later reported to senior management, however, and after some discussion he left the company last month before any disciplinary process could begin.
It is understood his departure was classified as "redundancy under compromise", and involved a substantial payoff.
A source at Barclaycard who said: "No-one could quite believe their ears when he came out with his Shi'ite joke.
Oh really. What source? Read it all, sickening.
