Apple’s recent hire – Antonio García Martínez, a former Fb product supervisor – on the advert concentrating on crew has been let go after a backlash by firm staff. Apple confirmed to Axios that Martínez was not employed by the corporate. Apple reportedly informed the publication it “all the time strived to create an inclusive, welcoming office.” Martínez was let go after Apple staff had been angered by sexist remarks made by him in his autobiography titled Chaos Monkey. The e-book consists of statements reminiscent of: “Most ladies within the Bay Space are gentle and weak, cosseted and naive regardless of their claims of worldliness, and customarily filled with shit”.
Martínez’s phrases “immediately oppose Apple’s dedication to Inclusion & Range”, learn a petition signed by over 2,000 Apple staff. This was first reported by GadgetClock.

After the petition started to go across the Apple workplace, Martínez’s Slack account was deactivated. Later, the advert platforms crew was reportedly referred to as into a gathering and it was determined he would not be allowed to work at Apple.
The petition in opposition to Martínez and his assertion in his e-book goes past simply sexism. Contemplating his autobiography was a bestseller, and his feedback within the e-book led to the termination of his employment, how was he employed within the first place? Did Apple miss his bestseller autobiography or did the corporate select to disregard it?
