As the dust began to settle and HMV looked set on a second chance, It’s emerged today that company heads are reportedly firing over sixty staff members. HMV employees went to the official HMV twitter account to let the rest of the world know.
Shortly afterwards the tweets were removed but artists such as Scroobius Pip managed to get to press the handy print screen button in time to keep in broadcast to the world and moments later the hash tag #hmvxfactorfiring began to trend.
So far the company has not commented on the legitimacy of the tweets. The company administrators have confirmed 190 staff redundancies from the both the distribution and head office areas.
Jokingly William Hill have tweeted “Before anyone asks, no we’re not putting bets on #hmvXFactor firing”. Click on the attached picture to see the tweets in question.
