Fired Google Employee Criticizes Company’s Intolerance, Alleges Potentially Illegal Practices
Recently fired Google employee James Damore said during an interview with University of Toronto Professor of Psychology Jordan Peterson that Google’s culture weeds out differing opinions, and asks employees to do potentially illegal things in the name of diversity.
Last weekend, Damore sent out a memo that called out the tech company for its left-wing bias, and intolerance of differing viewpoints, especially about the differences between men and women.
Damore was fired this week for the views he expressed in his memo. Google CEO Sundar Pichai said the memo violated the company Code of Conduct, and promoted “harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace.”
On Wednesday, Peterson published a nearly hourlong interview with Damore on YouTube, in which he and Damore discussed Damore’s history with the tech company, his firing from Google, and his viewpoints about the company’s values.
