SeaWorld senior PR representative Karin Korpowski has been fired by
the theme park’s parent, Anheuser-Busch, for telling PR Week’s US
edition that she was poorly paid. In an interview (PR Week, 18 October),
Korpowski said: ’I hate the fact that ’fun’ PR jobs, like working for a
theme park, pay so poorly ... Unfortunately, I can’t send a note to
Mastercard saying ’my job is fun’ instead of payment.’ She was fired
last week because she did not receive clearance for her comments.
SeaWorld refused to comment.
