New York Magazine reports that Business Insider CTO Pax Dickinson has been fired over tweets like the ones above.
Dickinson got in hot water yesterday over his most recent string of tweets about feminism, misogyny, and women in tech. A look at his tweets from over the years uncovered many more instances of Dickinson bashing feminists, gays, and the poor, among others. An e-mail seeking comment from Dickinson was not immediately returned.
The company has issued a statement: “A Business Insider executive has made some comments on Twitter that do not reflect our values and have no place at our company. The executive has left the company, effective immediately. Business Insider‘s team is composed of more than 100 talented men and women of many backgrounds, and we highly value this diversity.” That diverse team includes their openly gay political editor, Josh Barro.
