Neerabh Mehrotra, formerly Associate Director at Deloitte India, has been let go after he gushed over Adolf Hitler’s charisma, intelligence, and confidence on LinkedIn. The post:
Text transcription, courtesy Google Lens:
Recently I picked up a book on Adolf Hitler “The Dark Charisma of Adolf Hitler” by Laurence Rees. I always wanted to read about Hitler and the World War II and this book gave me a fair understanding about these topic.
Although, this book narrated lot of stories about Hitler and how he become the Chancellor of Germany. If you search him on Google, it will say, he was an autocratic leader, very egocentric, un-empathic, ruthless, aggressive, tough-minded, in fact many people believed that he was a psycho and needed a medical assistant.
One of his key personality traits was that he couldn’t tolerate any discussion/ debate/argument and he used to get annoyed if anyone interrupt or try to deliberate on any topic with him. He lived most of his life alone, never allowed anyone to get closure to him, had no family or friends either.
However, there are several charismatic qualities he had, and we all should learn from him.
Some of the imperative qualities of Hitler were.
1. Charismatic Visionary
2. Magnetic Speaker 3. Extremely Confident
4. Very Intellectual
5. Massive Action Taker
As the Nazis salute says “Heil Hitler!”
Would you like to add anything about Adolf Hitler?

When I first came across this story on Jewish Chronicle I had to Google to make sure I wasn’t about to eat the onion. Alas it’s real, there’s a whole discussion on r/deloitte, it appeared on the compendium of all LinkedIn lunacy r/LinkedInLunatics (many, many times in the last several days), and even VICE wrote about it. So I’m late, clearly.
A post on r/deloitte two days ago said he was still at Deloitte however a spokesperson at the firm told JC he doesn’t work there anymore. “The views on social media expressed by the individual, who joined our organization last month, are not aligned with our shared values and violate our internal policies,” said a firm spokesperson. “This individual no longer works for Deloitte India.”
There’s also an apology, though it appears it couldn’t salvage the pieces of his career shattered in a single social media post. On his now-disappeared LinkedIn he posted this apology letter (with two exclamation points!!):
Open Apology Letter!!
Dear LinkedIn Professionals,
This is an open apology letter to each one of you whose sentiments/feelings were hurt because of my recent post on “Hitler”.
Honestly, I had no intention to hurt anyone’s feeling instead I was just trying to share my learnings from the book. It is like any other post I have written in the past, but I agree, I should have been more careful.
My mentors/coaches/bosses have always taught me that if I make a mistake then I should have an audacity accept it as well so here I come forward to sincerely apologize for my post and I will not write anything about such personalities in the future.
I would also like to clarify that this was my personal opinion, and it has nothing to do with my race, religion, country or the organizations I am associated with at the moment or in the past.
On this platform, we all are professionals, and we keep sharing and learning for each other and some time we do make mistakes, retrospect and improvise it so I request you to forgive me, disregard the distraction I had created and continue our growth journey with full force.
Appreciate your consideration and support.
Thank you, Neerabh
Apparently the guy has a YouTube channel on which he describes himself as “Intraprenuer’s Holistic Success Coach.” There’s not much on there but this one aged particularly well.
This guy definitely will never work in this town again.
