Ian Poulter is taking on a man who labelled the Englishman a “true d***” online.
Glenn Stacey, who works for Reliable Carriers, posted a picture of Poulter lambasting a cameraman in last week’s Hong Kong Open accompanied by his critique.
Poulter, 40, then went after Stacey in an Instagram post, telling the company he would never use their services again following the insult.
This is truly disappointing to read.. Glenn I remember you delivering the car a while back and I have only great experiences from all the drivers at @reliablecarriers. And I was really happy with the service I paid for. The car was delivered as reliable would have expected first class. I guess from now on I will never be using @reliablecarriers ever again to move my vehicles. It's a good job there are lots of good carrier companies to chose from. It's saddens me to write this. Why would I ever have this man possibly deliver another vehicle. You think it would be handled in the same manner as the fist one. I don't think so. Could never take that risk.
@IanJamesPoulter We sincerely apologize for our drivers incredible lack of judgment. He is currently be routed to our MI HQ.— Reliable Carriers (@ReliableCarrier) December 12, 2016
This is not the first time Poulter has taken on online abusers. Earlier this year at the Valspar Championship, JJ Downum bragged he had psyched out the 12-time European Tour winner at the Ryder Cup.
Poulter complained to Downum’s employer, leading to his dismissal. The player dampened fears there would be another sacking.
Just to clarify.. I spoke with @ReliableCarrier COO & no one is getting fired. Fredom of speech is allowed. We both expressed ours. #Relax— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) December 13, 2016
