The black lives matter movement, which has become a topic in the USA, is also becoming a significant thing among tech companies employees. Recently a Facebook worker got fired after he criticized his coworker for stating black lives matter movement. He also criticized Mark Zuckerberg, who did not take any action against Trump’s Facebook post on this matter. Brandon Dail is the UI engineer working in the Seattle office recently shared on his social media account that he was fired from the company. The reason behind this action was Dail’s criticism of his coworker in the black lives matter movement.
He also posted several tweets criticizing Mark Zuckerbergeof not taking action against President Trump’s Facebook post. He tweeted because of his actions to support black lives matter by criticizing Mark, and his coworker company finally fired him. The former employee asked his coworker to add a banner in support of #blacklivesmatter, but he privately messaged him when he didn’t receive the response.
However, this is not the first time we see an employee speaking against mark for the controversial post done by president Trump. In his Facebook post, Trump said, “when the looting starts, shooting starts,” this statement became a controversial one when people started to report it after witnessing George Floyd’s death. However, Trump said he doesn’t feel any guilty of the words he used in his FB post, and defended it by not deleting. Twitter, on the other hand, removed that post stating it promotes violence. But, Facebook decided to put it there since, according to their rules, it doesn’t affect their audience. An ongoing protest is raging to a new level since many people are coming for the support of protest, which is becoming more violent every day.
