Rim was not happy, so they condoned the behavior??
Condone- Verb:
Accept and allow (behavior that is considered morally wrong or offensive) to continue.
Approve or sanction (something), esp. with reluctance.

Clearly RIM do not condone the behavior, they fired the two men.

he might be thinking in this word: "condemning"

"Needless to say, RIM was not happy with the developments and issued an official statement CONDEMNING the behavior, and saying that it does not comply with the company's integrity, so the execs were fired."

As someone who once was responsible for hiring and firing (well, at a public library... for a year), I can say that people who come to work and find stupid ways to pass the time without being productive... such as secretly playing computer games or surfing the internet, or worse, all day... should always be the first to go. If I were in charge at RIM, and I was asked to respond to the decision to discharge these two alcohol-ninjas, I would say GOOD RIDDANCE!
