Dennis Rodman Fired from ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ But Should Someone Else Have Been Sent Home Instead?

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman was fired on last night’s episode of Celebrity Apprentice. But with his teammate, Trace Adkins admitting that the group lost because of a mistake that he made, did Donald Trump make the right call in the boardroom?
Is it possible that Donald Trump made a mistake?
Last night on NBC‘s Celebrity Apprentice, Teams Power and Plan B were tasked with creating advertising campaigns for Trump’s wife, Melania’s skincare line. As usual, the competition was fierce, but the winner of the challenge was decided by one letter….
On the signage for their campaign, Team Power misspelled Trump’s name (it’s Melania, not Milania!), ruining their chance for a win. Though Plan B team member, Stephen Baldwin was able to quickly point out the error, no one on Team Power realized it; that is, until it was too late.
So who’s at fault?
According to Trace Adkins, the mistake was his, as he was a part of the design process, BUT as Project Manager, it was Rodman’s duty to proof all of the artwork and sign off on it…which he did — not noticing the misspelling at all.
When the two faced the Donald in the boardroom, Adkins called Rodman out, complaining that he didn’t really contribute to the task. And that spelling mistake? Well, he may have said that it was his error, but when it came down to it, Trace felt that it was something the entire team — including Dennis — should’ve noticed.
Mr. Trump seemed to agree, eventually turning to Dennis Rodman and firing him on the spot.
Did he make the right decision in firing Rodman, or should Trace Adkins have been sent home this week?
