The airline industry has taken its fair share of hits of late, and did so again, literally, on Monday in Australia.
Qantas CEO Alan Joyce was on stage giving a speech in front of 500 fellow business leaders when a man later identified and arrested as Tony Overheu walked up to him from his right and smashed a lemon meringue pie square in his face.
Overheu’s motives were not immediately known. He was once involved with the conservative Nationalist party in Australia and is a senior member of his local church.
Joyce has been criticized for his treatment of his company’s employees and is a supporter of gay marriage.
After the incident, Joyce left the stage and returned shortly thereafter with a clean sports jacket and picked up right where he left off.
