The Week contest: Sacked on Zoom

This week's question: The CEO of online mortgage lender Better.com has been accused of conducting the worst ever mass layoff, after he told 900 workers on a Zoom call that he had some "not great news" and that he would try not to cry. If a business consultant were to write a book of tips on how to fire people by Zoom, what should it be titled?
