Nut-rageous!

Oh this story is just too good of an opportunity to pass up on! It’s the kind of thing the Belly Ache gang lives for! By now surely all of you have at least heard of the debacle at Korean Air over some humble nuts (well as far as nuts go, Macadamia nuts are probably a bit more noble than the common peanut, but we digress) and a certain, less-than-humble Korean Airline employee!

By now surely all of you have at least heard of the debacle at Korean Air over some humble nuts (well as far as nuts go, Macadamia nuts are probably a bit more noble than the common peanut, but we digress) and a certain, less-than-humble Korean Airline employee!

Of course she’s not just any employee – she’s the daughter of the founder of South Korea’s Hanjin Group – one of the country’s largest chaebols (the infamous family-run conglomerates which span vast swathes of the economy through an intricate web of cross-shareholdings and other day-to-day business links), Cho Choong Hoon of which, amidst his vast holdings includes Korean Air.

So for those of you who have somehow missed this juicy story that went almost instantly viral on the ’Net’, our antagonist in the story is Hyun-Ah Cho, or Heather, as she calls herself. Heather you see, is – well, was, the head of cabin service before resigning all her posts at the airline as rage quickly became disgrace in what is now being called on social media ‘Nutgate’! Ooohweee, you just can’t make this stuff up!
