My direct manager is going through a typically traumatic family event at home, and I only know this because the company CFO inappropriately shared this in front of 100 people. I think it was inappropriate because CFO jokingly shared this info in front of everyone, including my manager. Given the off-hand nature, it seems unlikely that this was anything other than spontaneous. I cannot for sure say that my manager felt offended, but I would assume they didn't want this shared.
Knowing that my direct manager has this presumably serious problem at home, I now feel uncomfortable going to them with non-urgent problems.
To be clear, I don't think my manager's personal issues exempts them from their workplace responsibilities. Nonetheless, as an empathetic person, I now feel uncomfortable going to them with minor issues I have.
Question: is it appropriate to let my CFO know how their statement has impacted me? To be clear, this is not about speaking up on behalf of my manager. This is about the discomfort I now feel asking my manager for help, and how it impacts my job.
