Apple fires latest ad team signing for misogynistic comments

Antonio Garcia Martinez

On May 11, we published an article in which we informed you of the latest signing of the Cupertino-based company: Antonio García Martínez, former Facebook worker to reinforce its position by advertising within the different Apple platforms. But, as he entered the offices, the problems began.

As I mentioned in that article, Antonio García is the author of the book Chaos Monkeys, a book where he made a series of sexist comments that, unsurprisingly, have not sat well with Apple employees who quickly requested that he be fired, such as and how it happened.

According to The Verge, shortly after the petition to fire Antonio García began circulating, his Slack account stopped working. Apple's ad platforms team was called to an emergency meeting in which it was confirmed that Martinez would no longer work at the company.

The book Chaos Monkeys, exposes misogynistic views on the women of San Francisco:

Most Bay Area women are soft and weak, spoiled and naive despite their pretensions to worldliness, and generally full of shit. They have their rightful feminism and boast incessantly of their independence, but the reality is that when the epidemic plague or foreign invasion strikes, they become precisely the kind of useless luggage that you would trade for a box of shotgun shells or a drum of diesel oil.

More than 2.000 Apple employees signed the petition calling for an investigation into García Martínez's hiring.

Your hiring calls into question parts of our inclusion system at Apple, including hiring teams, background checks, and our process for ensuring that our existing culture of inclusion is strong enough to withstand people who don't share. our values ​​of inclusion.

40% of Apple's workforce is made up of women, yet only 23% are part of the company's research and development teams.
