Unreal. This guy even tried hard to show he was left of center & couched every touchy point w/ real ideas to promote their args.

Awesome, @Google, fire someone because they are honest, they are reasoned and their arguments are completely supported by research. 🙄

QED.

Google keeps proving that everything in that memo was true. https://t.co/2WXFY9KkTJ

From a certain perspective, couldn’t someone argue that this very precisely proves the point? https://t.co/f2RfX4oGGI

.@Google went proved the memo author’s point. So tragically upsetting and wrong. America doesn’t feel as free when I see things like this. 😔 https://t.co/iPUVnookcH

Somehow I think that if he’d written a BLM manifesto you’d give him a raise and a seat on the diversity board https://t.co/gxyLkwqTsQ

The online mob strikes again. People really don’t realize how much harm they are doing to the ability to have open dialogue in our society. https://t.co/WPAO6U4mX2

Independent thought and free expression of those thoughts is a violation of Google’s Code of Conduct.

Shocker. https://t.co/9hlsOLyapd

Been following this as closely as I can and so far have not seen any attempts at refuting his claims. Just accusations and hurt feelings. https://t.co/nw8iqoCld7

That was pretty much the sum total of the CEO’s response: “The memo has clearly impacted our co-workers, some of whom are hurting and feel judged based on their gender.”

CEO labels memo “offensive,” says staff “hurting and feel judged.” But he never says the memo’s assertions are incorrect 😉 https://t.co/Tv3SSS8Jpn

I’m old enough to remember when Google’s motto was “don’t be evil.” https://t.co/XE1P0B6qIa

Remember when its motto was “Don’t be evil”? It’s evil. Totalitarian evil. https://t.co/1o3Lninvp2
