A pricey Mac should be well within the reach of ousted McDonald’s CEO Steve Easterbrook — who was spotted publicly for the first time since news broke of his exit from the fast-food giant with a $70 million golden parachute.
Easterbrook, who was booted for having an affair with an employee, stopped by the Genius Bar at the Apple store in Chicago wearing a quilted black jacket and a five o’clock shadow, according to the Daily Mail.
He tested out laptops before leaving the store with a white Apple bag in tow.
Easterbrook, who had been CEO since 2015, “separated from the company” after its board found he violated company policy by having a relationship with a subordinate.
The British-born divorced dad-of-three admitted to the misconduct in an apology email sent to employees Sunday.
The company’s stock shares doubled in value during Easterbrook’s tenure. He’s reportedly expected to pocket $70 million in stocks and options, plus a severance package.
