In the interests if completeness, we should be aware of the comments by Starbucks' Howard Schultz on Ackman and his behavior:

"In an interview with The Huffington Post on Friday, Schultz said Ackman's purposeful leak of the letter to the press violated his fiduciary responsibility as a board member."What I observed happen yesterday, in my 20-plus years as a CEO, I have never seen or witnessed before," said Schultz. "I think it's despicable." "

"Bill Ackman was the primary architect and engineer of recruiting Ron Johnson and co-authoring the strategy that ruined the lives of so many employees," said Schultz, who noted that he has never met Ackman personally and is not a J.C. Penney shareholder."

"According to Schultz, no one asked him to speak out about what's happening at J.C. Penney, but felt like he should say something because it's a "tragic example of irresponsibility" on Ackman's part."
