Mozilla, the owner of Firefox, is fundraising for freedom of expression and privacy rights but failed to support these rights when their CEO, Brendan Eich, was forced to resign for supporting traditional marriage.
Brendan Eich, the former CEO of Mozilla, was forced to resign when it became known that he had donated to a campaign to preserve traditional marriage.
He made the private donation in a personal capacity unconnected to his work for Mozilla. However, when his donation became widely known a public campaign against him combined with a lack of support from Mozilla forced him to resign.
Now unbelievably Mozilla is running a fundraising campaign for freedom of expression and privacy rights.
The blatant hypocrisy of this organisation pretending to care about these rights after its failure to support Brendan Eich is outrageous!
Unfortunately for Mozilla, Brendan Eich has gone on to establish a new internet browser, Brave, that is now competing with Firefox.
Seems like their failure to stand by their CEO has cost them both their principles and their profit.
No wonder they’ve started fundraising!
