Earlier this week, Google fired one of its engineers, James Damore, after he wrote a 10-page memo criticizing the way the tech giant treated female employees as well as the company's crippling level of liberal bias. In the memo, Damore pointed out the fact that men and women are different, and argued Google's refusal to recognize these differences and embrace them was hurting the company. The memo was distorted by members of the media as an "anti-diversity tirade," when in reality, as many social scientists pointed out, science backs up Damore's statements.

Right-wing street artist Sabo took credit for the work in a series of tweets blasting the tech company.

Last night, news broke that Google cancelled an all hands on deck meeting about Damore's firing out of fear that it would leak to the media. New York Times columnist David Brooks called for Pichai to resign. And Damore has taken to the pages of the Wall Street Journal to explain why he was fired.
