Vice CEO Shane Smith doesn’t give a fuck! He is, for all intents and purposes, totally fuckless. He built a multi-million-dollar media company on the editorial mission “I’m cooler than you,” so don’t you ever forget it. And last week, according to Business Insider, Smith handed out $1,500 to each of Vice’s 700 full-time employees, which means he was just chilling onstage at the company’s 20th anniversary party with a million dollars. You know, like cool guys do. Take that, Gawker.
