LOS ANGELES — Danny Ockenhouse, a disabled man from East Stroudsburg, Penn. who was recently fired from a job as a greeter at Walmart, has accepted a job with XHamster.com, according to a representative for the site. After Ockenhouse was fired, dozens of Pennsylvania residents protested his dismissal.
Ockenhouse, who suffers from cerebral palsy, is quoted as saying, “First, I want to thank everyone for all your support. When I was let go from Walmart, I was absolutely devastated. I even offered to run the phones, but management told me that that wasn’t an open position. I offered to do everything. I am so thankful to XHamster for offering me this opportunity.”
Ockenhouse, according to an XHamster spokesperson, will be able to telecommute from East Stroudsburg and will not need to relocate for his new position.
XHamster is quoted as saying, “We were heartbroken when we heard Danny’s story. He is a hard worker who is never late for work, never calls in sick and always shows up with a smile on his face. This is the kind of man that we want as part of the XHamster family. Danny will now have the comfort of working from home on a variety of tasks and in a number of different areas of our company. We are proud to celebrate Danny as the newest member of the XHamster family.”
