Okay wait so they accepted this dude for a TC, then abruptly pulled it 2 months from the start date (I'm guessing he starts Jan 2021), leaving him with little or NO chance to apply to other firms (given that most will have filled their TCs by now). If the firm is so hard up they could have re-negotiated to reduce pay etc, but instead they just left him high and dry with no options and a short time period to try and find a replacement (if they really couldn't take him, they would have known some time back).

And you think that we should protect the reputation of such a firm? Somehow you think letting firms do this is acceptable, and yet we should protect them? So that firms can continue to do this to trainees? Are you serious?

If this publicity ensures that other firms take a hard look before thinking of screwing over students and trainees, I'd think it's for the public good.
