It is a reason - it's not a good reason and it's not an excuse, but it could be the rationale behind what happened. Someone may be playing CYA or just trying to salve their own bruised ego.  Too often, the root cause of hiring and firing decisions is somebody's personality.  Maybe the manager who said he wasn't meeting expectations was trying to deflect criticism of the manager's handling of the situation.  Crummy way to treat someone, but possible.

Still not a reason to make up a story about "not meeting expectations."  Especially not here in CA, which is an at-will state where no reasons even need to be given for terminating someone's employment. 

Unless it's just that the managers have already laid off all the
workers they can spare and still want the entertainment of putting
people out of work in time for Christmas.
