The decision was then made early Friday afternoon to let him go.

In an update, PWInsider has confirmed that DeJoseph was terminated, and it was also indicated that there multiple incidents that led to his departure. They noted that the decision to release DeJoseph stems from behavior during various meetings from the company.
