Yeah, upsetting shit. Whoever said crime doesn't pay?
Keep in mind that Drew Keith may have "gotten away with it" in the broadest sense of theft, but what's he really got to show for it?
He blows up a brand that had insane street level word of mouth and huge growth potential. Takes the money he stole from hundreds of people and pisses it away in a mediocre restaurant. Disappears for a while, gets called out by said hundreds of irate people and destroys his already shaky reputation with bullshit explanations and a very, very half assed attempt to make things right. Fucks that up, disappears again and resurfaces selling fried chicken and champagne to Korean hipsters in an even shittier restaurant.
So, now his reputation is shit and this debacle has cost him the opportunity to ever have any legitimate employment that's not entrepreneurial in nature (read: self-employed) because even a standard google search will come back with dozens of hits about what a scumbag this guy is. He's stuck selling chicken in an industry that's notorious for low profit margins and high failure rates.
I also doubt he'll ever be able to live in America again, because that would expose him to law enforcement action. So he's trapped in Korea, running shit restaurants and hustling gullible Korean girls to keep his ass up while he constantly grasps for the "next big thing."
Unfortunately for him, there will always be a few hundred people who remember his name and will gleefully shit on him every chance they get, and not a few people who would happily kick his ass if given the opportunity. To add insult to injury, his former employees that he also rolled are going to take the business that he started and build it into the successful brand that it could have been if DK didn't have the business acumen of Donald Trump.
This will be the sum of his miserable life. I don't see where he's really succeeded in anything.
