Following The Hate Speech, Mozilla Threatens To Fire Its Possible Employee

Following The Hate Speech, Mozilla Threatens To Fire Its Possible EmployeeInstead of focusing on making browser better, Chris switches to the politics.

Recently, a series of anonymous comments were posted on reddit that caught attention of the Mozilla CEO itself, Chris Beard.

Posted by the user aioyama, it made some pretty what people consider “disrespectful” statements, including Mozilla’s former employees:

“Frankly everyone was glad to see the back of Christie Koehler. She was batshit insane and permanently offended at everything. When she and the rest of her blue-haired nose-pierced asshole feminists are gone, the tech industry will breathe a sigh of relief.”

As well as

“Everyone hated her because she was an asshole Social Justice bully and frankly people are sick of her divisive stupidity.”

Now, the drama has evolved to the point where Chris Beard said that he would not tolerate such remarks and will fire the person responsible for the comments, “We are not going to walk that line as Mozilla. So if and when we identify who this person is, if they are an employee, they will be fired. And regardless, either way, they are not welcome to continue to participate in the Mozilla project. It is not who we are.”

Now while that’s a pretty understandable thing to do, here is a better idea: instead of focusing on politics, focus on making your web browser good so people would actually want to use it and stop migration to Chrome or other competitor products.
